Biff Tannen, Back To The Fu­ture

SFX - - The Greatest '80s Movies - Oliver Pfeif­fer

What do you think made Biff such a mem­o­rable bad guy?

He had ab­so­lutely no glint of kind­ness or re­deem­ing qual­i­ties what­so­ever! None.

Why was he such an ap­peal­ing char­ac­ter to play?

Where else do you get to por­tray many dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters in the same fam­ily, in dif­fer­ent times, un­der dif­fer­ent cir­cum­stances? It was a lot of fun and a great chal­lenge.

What’s your favourite Biff mo­ment?

When he gets punched by George McFly, spins around, hits the car and ends up on the ground un­con­scious! I re­mem­ber the au­di­ence cheered like they’ve never cheered be­fore when they saw that! That tells you some­thing.

Do you wish time travel were real?

I think the uni­verse would ex­plode be­cause of Doc’s warn­ing that if you change the past that changes the fu­ture too. That would be prob­lem­atic.

What makes Back To The Fu­ture a clas­sic?

It’s just got an amaz­ingly unique sto­ry­line: you get a time ma­chine, you go back in time and you meet your mum and dad. I think it also has a real heart-warm­ing el­e­ment: where a fam­ily comes to­gether even closer be­cause of that unique ad­ven­ture!
