Johnny Depp has proven his creative genius again
Did you know that J.K Rowling has personally asked the actor to play the role? After countless meetings and persuasions, the actor has finally agreed to do the part. One of the biggest reasons for him to say yes was the fact that Rowling took it upon herself to give full creative freedom to Depp in terms of how he is going to portray the character, something the actor did not expect since Rowling is known to be very meticulous when it comes to film characterization.
As such, Depp played the character based on his own understanding. In fact, in one interview, Depp mentioned that Grindelwald’s creepy eyes were a character choice. He sees Grindelwald as two people in one body, so a gamey eye is more like the other side of him. Time and time gain, Depp has proven his creative genius when it comes to bringing characters to life, and fans cannot wait as he takes the character deeper in the coming series.
