Hugo Weaving – V for Vendetta

3. Hugo Weaving – V for Vendetta

9 of 11

Unlike Tom Hardy’s Bane, Hugo Weaving’s V masked his entire face at all times before the camera and still gave one of the most epic graphic novel-based performances yet.  The voice inflections and body language was all it took to “get” V. He also told Evey (Natalie Portman) what was on his mind because he knew his facial expressions couldn’t be interpreted if they could even be seen.  Weaving’s V has a flair for the dramatic and the diction and brevity of The Bard.
