He is one of the most versatile modern actors. He is also a director, producer and musician. But his roles are incredibly talented!
We know Oldman better for his roles as first-rate villains, although, of course, he also had good characters. Here are some chic images of the actor and a reason to review films with him.
“Sid and Nancy” (1986)
Some consider this to be his best performance. And in fact, this is his first role, which really shot. Gary, with his characteristic thoughtfulness, talked a lot with drug addicts, went on a strict diet to lose weight, and even ended up in the hospital with exhaustion. The sacrifice was not in vain. The role was successful.
“John F. Kennedy: Gunshots in Dallas” (1991)
Oldman played one of the most famous killers – Lee Harvey Oswald. He carefully approached the work on the role and even talked with relatives of Lee Harvey.
Millionaire Mason Verger, who was mutilated by Lecter, who lives only for the sake of revenge on Hannibal. The amount of makeup on Oldman was just huge, but you can’t hide the skill and charisma behind them.
“Route 60” (2001)
O. J. Grant, who can grant any wish. But not quite the way people want. The film at the box office, by the way, failed, but it was thanks to Gary that he later became a cult film.
“True Love” (1993)
Villain villain. The pimp of a young prostitute, and despite the fact that the role is secondary, but Gary here came off in full: scars, leopard print robe, dreadlocks, a blind eye.
“The Fifth Element” (1997)
The canonical absolute villain Zorg. This role is notable for the fact that Oldman took Luc Besson at his word and agreed to shoot without reading the script. His role is deservedly included in the lists of the best negative characters in cinema.
This is truly an epic role. He was able to play the wise and experienced Count Dracula and the aspiring vampire Count Tepes.
Absolutely insane and corrupt cop Norman Stansfield. It was Gary who was able to give his character some perverse sophistication and the same sense of humor. One of Oldman’s best roles, a truly filigree work.
Harry Potter films
“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” (2004)
“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” (2005)
“Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” (2007)
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” (2011)
The role of the godfather Harry became the highest grossing in the film career of Oldman. Sirius Black could have been a father and a true friend to Harry, but he was killed by Voldemort’s henchmen. This was a real tragedy for Harry and Oldman did an excellent job with the role of the hooligan and courageous Black.
“Dark Times” (2017)
The second Oscar nomination for the role of the Prime Minister of Great Britain.
Gorgeous game, excellent makeup and significant weight gain by the actor himself.
