Daniel Radcliffe Reacts to Johnny Depp's 'Fantastic Beasts' Casting Controversy

Daniel Radcliffe Has Spoken Out About Johnny Depp’s Casting In ‘Fantastic Beasts

At a time when men in Hollywood are being forced to accept the consequences of their actions against women, fans have struggled to comprehend why Depp has essentially received a free pass - something Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe doesn't understand, either.

Radcliffe also mentioned how an actor in the original "Harry Potter" movies was reprimanded for growing marijuana.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald won't arrive in theaters until November 16, but we probably haven't heard the end about Depp's casting.

"Honestly, there's an issue at the moment where there's a lot of people being accused of things, they're being accused by multiple victims, and it's compelling and frightening", Yates previously told EW.

Heard had alleged that Depp had abused her physically and mentally.

While Radcliffe said he hopes he can be supportive of the producers who "gave [him] a great start in life and an fantastic job", he admitted that it's "a very hard thing" for him to consider Depp, who has been accused of physically and emotionally abusing his ex-wife, Amber Heard, as a major player in the ever-evolving mythos and world of the beloved magical franchise.

Radcliffe said while speaking to Entertainment Weekly, "It's a very hard thing for me". "I can see why people are frustrated". "Obviously what Johnny has been accused of is much greater than that". J.K. Rowling defended Depp's casting. 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.

Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.

When Johnny Depp was cast as Grindelwald, I thought he'd be wonderful in the role. Author JK Rowling already spoke her part in a statement she released after the public outcry.

Meanwhile, Depp will star in the next Fantastic Beasts movie, The Crimes of Grindelwald, alongside Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Jude Law, and Ezra Miller.
