Jude Law is a consummate actor used to working with great masters. Yet the Harry Potter prequel saga holds a special place in his heart. Why?
It is difficult to speak of Fantastic Beasts 3 after that Johnny depp was forced to leave the scene, but we do it anyway, shifting our attention to Jude Law and on his infinite joy of taking part in a universe born from the imagination of JK Rowling, the mother of Harry Potter. As we know, in the prequel saga of Harry Potter Law plays the young version of Albus silente. We met him in Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald and we will see him again, in a greater number of scenes, in the new film, which will arrive in American theaters in the summer of 2022 because Warner Bros. and the director David yates have to find a new one Grindelwald.
In a recent episode of the podcast The Dan Fogler 4D Xperience Podcast, Jude Law opened about the emotions he feels having to play one of the most prominent figures in the saga: “I’m happy to be part of this group” – he said – “and I’m very happy to play this character. film seems like a blessing to me. And there is also a great sense of well-being, I think it depends on respect, because for so many people the series holds a special place in their hearts and in their lives. I never felt like I did. this experience and I feel a strong sense of responsibility. It is a beautiful thing, it is like having received a magnificent work of art or something that you must jealously guard and perhaps polish “.
Jude Law he approached the character of with humility and curiosity Albus silente, and to fully understand her personality, he asked to meet her Rowling. The two spent an afternoon together discussing the character, a character that the actor loved not only because he has the extraordinary gift of magic, but because he has a melancholy and tormented side. This somewhat dark side will clearly emerge in Fantastic Beasts 3.
