Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actor Ralph Fiennes is tired of playing negative characters but he is very possessive about the role of Lord Voldemort in "Harry Potter" series and would not let it go if he had a chance to return to it.

The 53-year-old actor has plays some of the most notorious real as well reel villains in cinema be it an SS commandant in "Schindler's List", Hannibal Lector in "Red Dragon" or his most famous role of Potter's arch enemy.

"(With dark characters), you have to go to weird places in your head and -- well you can never say never -- but after an SS commandant, a serial killer in 'Red Dragon' and Voldemort, I

decided I didn't want to be that definition of evil any more. If you play those parts, I feel you have to put your head in the place of that person...," Fiennes told Evening Standard newspaper.

"(But if) Voldemort came round again, I would feel possessive... Protective. I would like to not let that go'," he added.
