Victor van Dort is the main character in the 2005 stop-motion animated film Corpse Bride, directed by Tim Burton and Mike Johnson. Popular actor Johnny Depp plays the voice of Victor Van Dort. He is portrayed as a shy, nervous, clumsy character who is the son of a newly wealthy family who is getting ready to marry his beautiful fiancé Victoria in an arranged marriage.
After making a mess of his wedding rehearsal, he practices the ceremony by putting a wedding ring onto a twig, but unfortunately, the twig is actually the finger of a corpse named Emily who now believes the pair are married.
