By next year, Oldman has become the most famous Count Dracula (in the film by Francis Ford Coppola's "Bram Stoker's Dracula", 1992). Oldman has played Dracula, which can hardly be called a villain. It emits a maximum of vampire romance. It is not surprising that the heroine Winona Ryder prefers so poetic nature to her fiance - vyalomu hero Keanu Reeves. The war, which announces the "evil" professor (Anthony Hopkins) - a game with only one goal, Dracula in love, and it is in the love of his salvation. A fee earthly happiness was the immortal soul.
Role of the greatest vampire of all time with Oldman played a cruel joke. Let's greet the actor on the world, it cemented a long time for Gary Role villain. Few exceptions (Ludwig van Beethoven) - a spoonful of honey in a barrel of tar. Now, according to Gary himself in Hollywood in the list of contenders for the role of hero in the romantic comedy, his name will be the last. In the case Oldman "genius and evil" were quite compatible.

One of the best "plohishey" 90-ies. - Norman Stensfild ( "Leon") - wicked and heartless drug addict and police, in the mood-elevating delirium kills everybody. But Oldman would not be itself without self-irony, and therefore Stensfild and especially Jean-Baptiste Emanuel Zorg (chubasty villain "Fifth Element") nevrastenichny and disgusting. This quality is especially appreciated by Hollywood Oldman - he can play ugly and nasty villain (usually a supporting actor), who captivates the audience. And despite the fact that even with a dozen villains (Dracula, Stensfild, Zorg, Egor Korshunov in Air Force One, "1998; Dreksil Spivey in" true love ", 1993; Jackie Flannery in" State of Grace ", 1990, and t. d.)

Oldman called Hollywood Actor Akterych (Actor's Actor). And not for nothing that he got the nickname: he is able to transform beyond recognition, . each new role offers a special dialect, . its most fascinating villains in Hollywood, . and the best candidate for the role of the historically famous people (Sid Vishis, . Joe Orton, . Lee Harvey Oswald, . Ludwig van Beethoven) there is not found,
. In Russia, he would probably have played Lenin in America is this great Englishman often plays the bad Russian.
Often, as a hero of the second plan, Gary Oldman is the screen size of number one. Elite Cinema, which plays Oldman, does not call: starting Sid Vishisom, Rosencrantz and Count Dracula, he became Egor Korshunov (Air Force One ") and Dr. Zachary Smith (Lost in Space"). Yet Oldman is so good, that look at him pleasantly, even in a very bad movie.
