“Jude Law is a phenomenally talented actor whose work I have long admired, and I’m looking forward to finally having the opportunity to work with him,” Yates said. “I know he will brilliantly capture all the unexpected facets
of Albus Dumbledore as J.K. Rowling reveals this very different time in his life.” (Variety)

"Dumbledore fell in love with Grindelwald, and that added to his horror when Grindelwald showed
himself to be what he was." Rowling has said. In the sequel, “you will see Dumbledore as a younger
man and quite a troubled man. We’ll see him at that formative period of his life." (via THR)
"[I’m] excited by the whole prospect…curious, excited…I think all good jobs have an element of fear
amongst them. You know, because you obviously want to do well by it. You want to please everyone.
You want to please people, and you want to please yourself." - Jude Law in a BBC interview (via)
