Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

Do you like the Tom Riddle from COS or the one in HBP in the memories with Slughorn? For me, I like the one from COS, but the Riddle from HBP was a creepier. That's my opinion.

I liked the one from COS better. He seemed more Tom Riddle-ish to me. The Riddle from HBP was creepy though.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

the Tom in CoS was HOT! ok, i know i shouldn't think that about the future destroyer of the WW, but in the series, it's always mentioned how handsome Voldemort was, so i've always imagined that about him.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

I liked Christian Coulson (CoS) more. He gave a great performance and felt really right for the part. Frank Dillane (HBP) was creepy and played the part well, but made less of an impact as a young Voldemort imo

The Tom Riddle in CoS was pretty good looking like Riddle supposed to be, and the older Tom Riddle in HBP was creepy enough, but I have to say that I liked the younger Tom Riddle in HBP the best. He was portrayed perfectly! I love how he seemed to keep to himself and be very sneaky in his misdeeds. I really got that vibe from him!

I like Tom Riddle's appearance better in CoS, but I liked the acting so much more in HBP.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

I liked the first Tom Riddle better. But the second one did a very nice job acting wise. He was really creepy and evil . It really foreshadowed what he was to become. Someone without a soul. Truly evil.

COS- He was more how I imagined him. Plus, he was good-looking.. and the HBP one reminded me of my cousin!!

I liked the cos-riddle, he was so pretty :> But the hbp one, especially 11 year old Riddle, was more how I'd imagined him. And christian coulson/cos-riddle doesn't exactly look like 16, does he? XD

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

Erm, I don't remember Tom from HBP. Well, the first one that comes to mind is the one from COS, but I can't say for sure.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

Mmmmm, let's say that Frank Dillane was a convincing young Voldemort, but I would date Coulson anyway, hands down.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

I definitely liked the Riddle from COS better in the appearance department. The books always describe how good looking he was, and I thought Coulson fit that role. As far as acting goes however, the HBP Riddle was much better. He was INCREDIBLY creepy, and I could see the older Voldemort within him. That streak of evil that made him inhuman was already evident, and yet he was so well spoken and charming to others when he needed something.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

Frank Dillane, by far. Excellent acting, and looked the age of the character (unlike Christian Coulson).

^ Agree. Christian Coulson was too old for the role, and the acting wasn't appropriate to the character. HBP versions were far, far better in portraying Voldemort.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

Frank was great. He looked exactly like the grown-up version of Hero-Fiennes. Wonderful casting, honestly! I'm surprised. Frank has the evil look in his eye (and face) that Tom always had.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

I liked the Riddle from HBP better... he was so suave in such a creepy way, you know? Exactly how I imagined Tom Riddle to be. In CoS, he was... I don't know, too "obviously insane"? Yes, I know that Voldemort is completely mental, but he usually keeps a very calm persona.

I don't think the "new" Tom Riddle was appropriate to the character either. Sure, he was super creepy, but let's not forget that teenage Tom Riddle was supposed to be handsome, charming and charismatic. He charmed the socks off most of his teachers (with the exception of Dumbledore) and kids at the school admired and worshipped him. If I had been a student at Hogwarts during Tom Riddle's time, I would have never been charmed by Creepy McCreeperton. CoS Tom Riddle would have fit that image much better, although I have to say the acting would probably not have matched up.

Re: Which Tom Riddle do you prefer?

Hands down the youngest won - he's a great little actor. I liked the older one also tho. The middle one didn't have a very large role tho, I don't think.
