Daniel Radcliffe Weighs in on the Johnny Depp 'Fantastic Beasts' Controversy

Daniel Radcliffe Weighs in on the Johnny Depp 'Fantastic Beasts' Controversyā€¯

However, although the producers did consider recasting the villain, they later decided against it because the allegations had been dropped - but Radcliffe can see why fans are annoyed by it. The report said Radcliffe "wants to be supportive of the film's producers" who gave the actor his young start. He said he could see how "people are frustrated with the response", where the marijuana smokers are reprimanded while Depp is defended by powerful members of the entertainment world.

"It's a very hard thing for me", Daniel toldEW about the controversy.

Meanwhile, following on from the end of the first film, the sequel sees the Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald escape from the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA). Director David Yates and J.K. Rowling both weighed in with support of Johnny Depp, although they couldn't go into detail due to "agreements" between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard.

Whatever side of the fence you find yourself on - or even if you're perched somewhere in between - Johnny Depp will be part of the ensemble cast featured in The Crimes of Grindelwald. Daniel Radcliffe may have hung up his invisible cloak but the 28 year-old actor doesn't care about the film's legacy or the fans. Based on our understanding of the circumstances, the filmmakers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.

Once Heard and Depp's divorce was finalized and their domestic abuse case was settled, Heard later said in a joint statement with him that "there was never any intent of physical or emotional harm" during their relationship. "Neither party has lied nor made false accusations for financial gain". Then Rowling herself released a statement on the matter.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in theaters on November 16, 2018. Daniel Radcliffe says he understands the frustration many have with Johnny Depp being involved in the franchise and notes that, while filming the Harry Potter movies, actor Jamie Waylett was sacked from the Deathly Hallows adaptations for growing weed plants.
