Actors Who Played The Villain A So Well They Make Us Cringe

When it comes to on-screen villains, people love to hate them. They’re always messing things up for the hero, plotting, and typically wreaking havoc on everything. Of course, the actors aren’t to blame for their portrayals of villains. But that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t cross to the other side of the street if they were walking towards us.

Personally, we would sprint away from Tobias Menzies after watching him terrorize the Scottish Highlanders as Black Jack Randall in the Starz series Outlander. No one should be able to embody that much evil, no matter how fictional. Get ready; you might shudder at the sight of these actors.

We think all Game of Thrones fans can agree that the episode Iwan Rheon died, wait, sorry, the episode where Ramsay Bolton died was the best ever. The character was probably one of the worst human beings to grace the series, and that’s saying a lot since the Lannister family is chock-full of horrible people.

He’s sadistic, heartless, and pretty much the textbook definition of evil. We can’t imagine being actor Iwan Rheon, since there’s no doubt in our minds that people shudder whenever he pops up onscreen in another series or film. Long story short, he played the role of an emotionless psychopath too well.
