The Danish actor took on the role of Johnny Depp in the third part of the series “Fantastic Beasts”. Will the cards be reshuffled again?
Los Angeles – The Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen has speculated about a return from Hollywood star Johnny Depp (59) to the “Harry Potter” prequel “Fantastic Beasts”.
“Course has changed – he won the lawsuit, the trial – let’s see if he comes back. He could,” the 56-year-old was quoted as saying by the industry journal Deadline. Mikkelsen said he was a big fan of Johnny Depp. “He’s a great actor, I think he did a fantastic job.”
Mikkelsen took on the role of dark wizard Grindelwald in the third installment of the series after Johnny Depp was asked to leave the series following allegations of domestic abuse. In early June, Depp won a broad victory in a US defamation lawsuit with his ex-wife Amber Heard. The jury awarded the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star high damages.
For the first time in three years, Depp is back in front of the film camera. In “Jeanne Du Barry” he plays the French King Louis XV. (1710-1774). dpa
