In case you still don’t know, Johnny Depp will be appearing in a cameo role in the newest Harry Potter movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. What’s more amazing is how the cast kept this exciting news a secret.
We all know keeping a secret in this age and time is hard, but they sure did a great job in locking their lips for this wonderful surprise. The main star, Eddie Redmayne, shared: “One of the wonderful things about making this film was the story that J.K. Rowling had written and the surprises and secrecy for it.”
“I know in the age of social media, it’s impossible to keep those secrets but if there’s any way we can keep some of them secret, it would be so lovely to do,” he added.
As for Alison Sudol, keeping that secret wasn’t as hard as it may seem.
“We didn’t have to keep it for that long because we only found out shortly before it was released publicly, luckily,” she said. She also confessed how many secrets they had to keep for the film so they were basically used to being vaults.
Colin Farrel, on the other hand, joked around by saying, “I don’t have any friends so (it was easy to keep it a secret)” But later on confessed that they didn’t know of Johnny’s appearance until very late so there was really no secret to keep at all.
Although, Johnny’s exact role still remains to be a mystery to be told, fans have expressed their excitement. Some say they became more interested in the franchise because of Depp.
The first installment of the JK Rowling film will hit the theaters on November 18.
