Rhys Ifans plays the film's primary antagonist, legendary figure Grigori Rasputin, a Russian mystic and self-proclaimed holy man who befriended the family of Nicholas II, Russia's last Tsar, and gained considerable influence in late Imperial Russia. He was also an immensely divisive figure at the time, as his sinister and scandalous reputation meant many were wary of the power he wielded in court.
