Fiennes Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

7 (Ralph) Fiennes Siblings: Ranked Oldest to Youngest

Ralph Fiennes is one of the most unmistakable faces in Hollywood. It’s been that way for decades. Even since one of his most notable appearances in the psychological thriller Red Dragon (2002). 

It’s hard to find actors who have taken roles as consistently popular as Ralph has. It’s what’s made him such a fan favorite with fans. There are no weak links in his filmography, and that might be even rarer than winning the elusive EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony)!

Luckily for us, there is plenty of talent to go around in the Fiennes family! Ralph is just one of the seven siblings who have pursued a career in film and earned their stripes as individuals of their own, away from the shadow cast by their brother Ralph’s stardom.

It would be impossible to rank them in terms of talent, so instead, we hope you join us as we take a look at the Fiennes siblings from oldest to youngest!

7. Michael Emery (December 31, 1952 – Present)

Age (as of May 4, 2022): 69
Born: United Kingdom
Occupation: Archaeologist
Notable Film: N/A

Michael Emery isn’t related to the Fiennes by blood, but he is every bit as a family as his six siblings. Michael’s adoptive mother, Jennifer Lash, is described as one of the warmest and most giving souls.

That was never more evident than when she decided to answer an advertisement in her Suffolk paper looking for a family to foster a troubled 11-year-old boy with a difficult upbringing.

Jennifer took Emery under her wing and introduced him to the Fiennes family, quickly becoming part of the family. Emery is an archaeologist, and Ralph has continued to help fund his dig expeditions.

All that money didn’t go to waste! Michael Emery is part of the team responsible for unearthing the first Bronze Age burial site discovered in Cheshire.

Did You Know?

Joseph, one-half of the twin set in the family, once said: “Mick was just there, and as far as I know, he was blood. When she [mom] saw the ad, her motherly instincts just couldn’t resist. Of course her friends said she was mad. He became just one of the family.”

Age (as of May 4, 2022): 59
Born: December 22, 1962

Ralph Fiennes has been a welcome presence in our most beloved film franchises. From Harry Potter, James Bond to Kingsman, Ralph Fiennes has been a part of our homes. He’s one of the rare actors that never lost his relevance, and growing up on his movies has been a luxury.

Portraying the Nazi war criminal Amon Göth in Schindler’s List (1993) netted him nominations for the Academy’s Best Supporting Actor and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting.

Just as impressive as his on-screen performances are his keen eye for choosing the right projects.

Rather than bore you with listing his extensive catalog of classics, let’s shine a light on “he who shall not be named.” His portrayal as the main antagonist in the Harry Potter franchise was as alluring as it was terrifying. It endeared him to millions of readers worldwide and put him on the map as one of Hollywood’s most coveted stars.

Martha’s directorial debut couldn’t have come with better talent attached to it. Onegin was an adaption of the novel Eugene Onegin, written by Alexander Pushkin. Thanks to the luxury of being part of the Fiennes family, Ralph starred in the lead role and unsurprisingly garnered a ton of praise.

But even without her brother attached, Martha proved she had the natural touch of a storyteller, winning the Best Director Award at the Tokyo Film Festival and Best Newcomer at the London Film Critics Circle.

Did You Know?

Who better to play a young version of Ralph’s most famous character Lord Voldemort, than someone in the family? Martha’s nine-year-old son, Hero, offered his acting talent to play the terrifyingly sinister dark wizard in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Age (as of May 4, 2022): 56

Jacob Fiennes is 51-years-old and the counterpart to his twin, Joseph. So as far as who the youngest is, we can leave that up for debate! What counts is that Jacob and his brother, who we’ll be covering next, get the special treatment that comes with being the baby of the family!

Jacob lives a modest life but maintains a close relationship with his siblings. He’s currently a gamekeeper, spending much of his time at the Raveningham Hall Estate in Norfolk, UK.

Jacob is the only family member who lives a life away from Hollywood. After he finished school, he went to work on a farm in Australia, which is where his passion belongs. “I’m very different from the rest of my family. I’m a country boy at heart and I like the quiet life.”

Joseph Fiennes is the youngest sibling in the family!

Joseph is an actor who doesn’t shy away from a challenge. He’s known as the “go-to actor for English cultural history,” and his portrayal of William Shakespeare in Shakespeare in Love is proof of that! He’s appeared on the stage, on film, and on television.

His performance in the acclaimed TV series The Handmaid’s Tale was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Other roles include Timothy Howard in the second season of the award-winning television series American Horror Story.
