[ # ] Johnny Depp asked to quit Fantastic Beasts
November 6th, 2020 under Harry Potter, Johnny Depp


Johnny Depp lost his libel case against The Sun this week over claims of physically abusing his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Today, he announced that he lost more than that. He also lost his job on the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts.

In light of recent events, I would like to make the following short statement.
Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty.
I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love and concern, particularly over the last few days.

Secondly, I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request.
Finally, I wish to say this.

The surreal judgement of the court in the W.K. will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal.

My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.

Thank you for reading.
Sincerely,

Johnny Depp

Warner Bros says they will recast his role for the third movie that is already in production.

Personally, I think it is a mistake. There is so much to this story, and Depp has done so much good for others.

When it comes to Warner Bros’ decision, I am not surprised. Fans of the series never approved of him in the role. This was their way out.
