7 of the Most Riddikulus ~Reasons~ as to Why Lord Voldemort Has No Nose
The fan theories surrounding the Harry Potter franchise are endless: Harry is immortal, it’s all in Harry’s head, Harry & Hermione are long-lost siblings, Ron is a time-traveling Albus Dumbledore, Neville’s the real Chosen One… And you can bet there are a whole bunch of theories surrounding He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, particularly one particular body part of his (or lack thereof).
When Lord Voldemort starts to take form in the films, you’ll notice that he’s missing his nose. Some say it’s because he drank unicorn blood, so he lead a half-life, a cursed life. Others say it’s so it’s harder to transform into him. And then there’s this well thought-out theory:

All of the aforementioned are interesting ~reasons~…. but the following are so.much.better:
1. A Platform 9 3/4 mishap:

2. A game gone too far:
I had this theory that voldemort's parents "took his nose" when he was a baby, didn't get it back, and became evil ? https://t.co/XgeW4cLy6L

3. The ultimate sacrifice:
fan theory of the evening: voldemort doesn't have a nose bc he sacrificed it to have a nice p*nis, and that's why he was able to have a kid

4. *gulp* Drugs?

5. The worst case of sniffles ever:
I have this theory that Voldemort didn’t lose his nose because he was evil, but because he didn’t moisturize it when he got a super bad cold

6. Skin cleansing gone wrong:
I have this theory that Voldemort's nose is the way it is because he was using a pore strip that took off more than just his blackheads.

7. Pinocchio-esque backlash:
Theory: voldemort lied lots and lots so his nose grew LOADS and it got so big it was to heavy and it fell off. Leaving him now noseless!

Can you believe all of these male Harry Potter roles were actually recast?
Irish actor Richard Harris originated the role of the Headmaster of Hogwarts in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and then reprised it in Chamber of Secrets. Sadly, he passed away from Hodgkin's Disease in 2002, vacating the position.
From Prisoner of Azkaban onward, Michael Gambon held the honor.
