Alan Rickman does evil well. He's been a favorite of mine since Costner's Robin Hood. When I think of human evil in the movies, I alway think of Hannibal Lector (first movie, can't remember his name), but it wasn't his voice so much as his over all performance that portrayed evil well.
Unfortunately, I'm not much of a movie goer. I did see Harry Potter with Alan Rickman as Snape, er, Professor Snape. I don't watch TV either. I read alot. Between my husband and myself we have over 10,000 books in the house and only 3,000 are ebooks. One bedroom has been converted into library shelves. We both love to read.

Thank you very much for your kind words, Vicky. One reason that you may not often hear an author reading her own words is that most of my colleagues assign all their rights to their publishers.
Therefore, they cannot sit down with a radio studio, and record themselves... at least, not without getting permission.
If you are one of my Facebook friends (I go to facebook almost every day), you might have seen a little discussion on my personal page.
I'm very conscious of voices, and waste far too much time dreaming about the male voice talent I'd like to read Djohn-Kronos.
One friend suggested Alan Rickman (best known as Severus Snape). I hadn't thought of him for the Emperor, mostly because I can hear his evil purr as my arch villain Django-Ra!
What do you think? Anyone...?
