** This is the driving force behind both men's careers; after ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'', Rickman began declining villain roles to avoid TypeCasting (including turning down Creator/SeanBean's 008 role in ''Film/GoldenEye''). He also nearly turned down playing Severus Snape in ''Film/HarryPotter'' before JK Rowling let him know that there was more to Snape than what met the eye.

* The imperiously domineering Isabella "Ivy" Valentine from the ''Franchise/SoulSeries'', and femme fatale for hire Christie from ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' (both voiced with the applicable RP accent) are both great examples of the EvilBrit stereotype where it's used to enhance their EvilIsSexy personalities. Averted with ''Franchise/StreetFighter'''s Cammy White - she's one of the good guys.
