Five Best Onscreen Villains Of Today | Haider Rifaat

We all know that villains either make or break a show. Undoubtedly, a television series is incomplete without a villain’s presence. I, for one, have always been on their side as they are smart, vicious and devious. Having said that, I have come up with a list of five villains who, in my opinion, are the best in the business. Take a look for yourself!

5. Mads Mikkelsen

Mikkelson has experimented with a number of diversified film and television roles but his portrayal of Hannibal Lecter in ‘Hannibal’ was the winner! He plays the role of Hannibal, a cannibalistic serial killer who happens to be a food lover. The deadly mind games that this not-so-innocent gentleman plays in the show makes him worthy of the top five.

Trachtenberg has always been a versatile actress. Don’t underestimate her innocent looks because this girl can go from bad to worse! Her portrayal of Georgiana Sparks in ‘Gossip Girl’ was entertaining and fun. Although her character in the show was not the center of attention but watching Georgiana grow from season to season was a surprise package.


3. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Gellar has always been my favorite actress ever since I was seven years old. She played the vicious twin sister, Siobhan Martin in ‘Ringer’, a show that was cancelled by The CW in 2012. Her performance as the evil twin garnered critical acclaim. She deserves all the praise. I loved her cheesy yet mysterious character in the show.

aa2. Janel Parrish

I was completely grief-stricken after the death of Janel Parrish’s character, Mona Vanderwaal in the summer finale episode of ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ She was the best character on the show. She made the series seem more interesting and fun. Mona was a psychopathic high school girl who exacted revenge on the five main characters of the show. Parrish is one of the best actresses in the current lot of up-and-coming actors. Her performance in ‘Pretty Little Liars’ is worthy of every accolade.


1. Zachary Quinto

I can give this lad all the credit for delivering not just one, but two spectacular performances in shows such as ‘American Horror Story: Asylum’ and ‘Heroes.’ However, I found him best as Dr. Oliver Thredson in ‘Asylum.’ Undoubtedly, Quinto did his character justice and was one of the spotlights of ‘American Horror Story.’ He portrayed the role of Dr. Oliver Thredson, a serial killer and psychiatrist. In my humble opinion, Zachary is one of the best actors America has ever produced.
