Harry Potter villain Ralph Fiennes has been spotted paying a late night visit to a Thai massage parlour – but appeared to have a little trouble settling the bill.
The actor, 55, who plays the reviled Lord Voldemort in the cult wizardry films, spent about an hour in the Soho venue in London after slipping in at 10.45pm.
But his visit to the Boonsawad Thai Spa on Thursday did not go off without a hitch.
