A nice bird for you, eh Sir Godfrey?
~ Mr. Victor Hazell

Mr. Victor Hazell, also known as Victor Hazell or simply just Hazell, is the main antagonist of the 1975 Roald Dahl book Danny the Champion of the World and its 1989 television film adaptation.

In the film, he was portrayed by Robbie Coltrane, who also played the Duke in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Mr. Hyde in Van Helsing.

Personality

Victor Hazell is portrayed as a plump, snobbish and rich pheasant owner who owns a large chunk of land, very close where Danny and his father Willaim live.

He is also cruel to people who are not rich, for example, he kicked Doc Spencer's dog Bert instead of going over him, or threatening to spank Danny if he made one mark on his car.

In the end of the book, his pheasant hunting party is ruined when Danny and William steal his prized, fat pheasants, which causes all his guests to be angry with Hazell and leave.

Trivia
