AL­BUS DUM­BLE­DORE

(JudE LaW)

SFX - - Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald -

LAW I think Dum­ble­dore feels some­what iso­lated, and that in or­der to progress and do the right thing he’s go­ing to have to face up to de­mons that he’s car­ried, and ac­tions that he’s taken in his past. He is also in a sit­u­a­tion where he re­lies on oth­ers to be­lieve in his causes, and act for him. So that leaves, in its wake, rather a lot of… I sup­pose guilt, in a way. He’s com­pli­cated. But you know, un­mis­tak­ably, as is men­tioned in all the books, he has this sparkly and mis­chievous qual­ity, which is such a lovely thing to be able to sprin­kle in.

I did [go back and watch Richard Har­ris and Michael Gam­bon’s per­for­mances], but I was freed up im­me­di­ately by Jo Rowl­ing and David Yates, who said, “Come on, there are 80-odd years be­tween them. You’re not him yet.” There are lit­tle things I wanted to pick up on that Har­ris and Gam­bon did, but it was just an ex­cuse to go back and get into the world. What am I do­ing this week­end? I’m go­ing to watch all of the Harry Pot­ter films and pre­tend I’m tak­ing notes!
