Mads Mikkelsen Talks Making Grindelwald His Own in ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’

Don’t expect Mads Mikkelsen’s Grindelwald to be a carbon copy of Johnny Depp’s version of the character in Fantastic Beasts 3. While Depp was meant to play the character in the upcoming fantasy film, he was asked to resign by Warner Bros. amidst legal troubles.

Mikkelsen revealed what fans can expect from his version of the character after stepping in to replace Depp:

“Nobody’s interested in me going in there and trying to copy anything, that would be creative suicide immediately, especially when it’s been done before and masterfully. So everybody’s expecting us to find a different path.”

Mikkelsen continued:

“Having said that, we need a bridge between what he did and what I’m gonna do, so those bridges you have to find together, whether it’s a certain look, whether it’s a certain attitude in certain situations, but you have to make it your own. Anything else would be plainly just creatively stupid.”
