And the famous line ” My name is Inigo Montoya ” is said six times . Count Rugen’s death in the original novel was more graphic.
Inigo Montoya is a Spanish-born swordsman who, through years of revenge-fueled study, becomes one of the top two swordsmen in the world.
Zorro , The Man Behind the Mask Mandy Patinkin’s line, “Hello my name is Iñigo Montoya , you killed my father. Prepare to die” is instantly recognisable to any fan of the film but sadly Guillén Lombardo whose real name was William Lambard has not been recognised or remembered until very recently.
Vizzini . Vizzini is the brains behind the trio (himself, Fezzik and Inigo ) were hired by Humperdinck to kidnap and murder Buttercup. He is smug, ruthless, and killed quickly in a battle of wits against Westley.
Angered, Count Rugen slashed him through the heart, thus ending his life. Inigo spent the next 20 years looking for Rugen to avenge his father’s death . Praying to his father for guidance, Inigo eventually ended the Count’s life, avenging Domingo’s murder .
Luckily for him, though, he’s got a good friend in Fezzik, who helps sober him up and tells him where to find the six-fingered man. And yes, Inigo does end up killing the guy and getting his revenge .
Inigo , however, while on a quest for vengeance, overcomes adversity, helps Westley get the love of his life back, and conquers his flaw of alcoholism in order to defeat the man who killed his father, showing himself to be the true hero all along.
Buttercup is a beautiful farm girl who lives in the country of Florin and is the true love of Westley.
You killed my father. Prepare to die .” Inigo Montoya is a skilled swordsman from Spain. He is portrayed by Mandy Patinkin.
Inigo derives from the Castilian rendering ( Íñigo ) of the medieval Basque name Eneko. Ultimately, the name means “my little (love)”. While mostly seen among the Iberian diaspora, it also gained a limited popularity in the United Kingdom.
This famous quote is spoken by, who else, Inigo Montoya, played by Mandy Patinkin in The Princess Bride (directed by Rob Reiner , 1987). It’s also a line from the original book by William Goldman .
Zorro . Banderas’ Zorro ? Wesley, imo. For all of you uninformed cheesers here, it is actually spelled ” Westley “.
Westley , being poor, set out on a journey to seek wealth for marriage, after an affectionate goodbye to Buttercup , with the promise that he would always come to her.
Westley : As you wish. Grandpa: That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying “As you wish,” what he meant was, “I love you.” And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back.
The madman kicks rocks down at Fezzik and Fezzik finds himself hanging by his fingers from some rocks.
