    V Was Played By Four Different Actors

    From u/zeanithx

    In V for Vendetta, four different actors played the role of V. The character itself was originally played by James Purefoy. Purefoy lasted only six weeks into shooting before quitting, saying that he couldn’t continue to wear the mask through the rest of shooting. Weaving was brought into the project, but Purefoy’s scenes were kept and dubbed over to save time and money. Along with Weaving and Purefoy, two stunt doubles were involved with V’s performance. Chad Stahelski played him in the Larkhill scene where the double actually had to walk through real fire and David Leitch, a fight coordinator, played him during the Victoria Station fight, where instead of shooting in slow motion, he moved at normal speed and everyone else moved slowly to save money.

But if you look carefully at the masked man that grabs her as she tries to leave Dietrich's house, you can see burn scars around the eyes much like how V's hand looks the first morning Evey is with him. Also, you can see he is wearing gloves in every scene during the torture as further indication that it is him.
