In the interview with Depp that Thursday was released, the actor says that he is the annoying thought that the Harry Potter author has had to answer for her choice
J. K. Rowling had no trouble Johnny Depp to be cast in the Fantastic Beasts movies, because she knows that he is wrongly accused of domestic violence. That puts the actor at least, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
The writer last year was a lot of criticism when it turned out that Depp is the role of Grindelwald plays in the series. He was earlier that year accused of assault by his ex-wife Amber Heard. Rowling gave at the time a declaration, in which she said: “On the basis of our understanding of the circumstances, we feel the filmmakers and I are not only good on our original casting, but we are sincerely happy that Johnny is an important character plays in the films.”
In the interview with Depp that Thursday was released, the actor says that he is the annoying thought that the Harry Potter author has had to answer for her choice. “But J. K. has seen the evidence and knows, therefore, that I false am accused, and that is why they have me publicly supported,” says Depp. “She takes this kind of cases are not frivolous. They could not have pronounced them not knowing the truth. That is why they did it.”
