Jude Law on His Role as Album Dumbledore
Meanwhile, one of the most prominent roles Jude Law has played is as Albus Dumbledore. The Hogwarts’ Headmaster has been portrayed by two of the most respected actors in the industry: Michael Gambon and the late Richard Harris.
With a character this big, there are surely high expectations on Jude Law’s every outing as the Grand Sorcerer.
Though he admitted that he felt that weight, the three Fantastic Beasts movies proved that he effortlessly nailed playing this role, thanks to the help of the film director David Yates.
“One of the joys that David really allowed me to investigate was, rather than feeling the weight of the brilliant performances, by Michael Gambon and Richard Harris, was to really go back and understand that he's not the fully formed Dumbledore of the Harry Potter books and films,” he said, perWith Ashley and Co. “He's a man still finding his way, still confronting his demons.”
In the latest installment, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, Album faced his past, his own self and guilt.
“But if there were a quality that links him, I would say it's his mischievousness, his humor, and his belief in people,” he continued. “Dumbledore believed in Draco; he believed even in Tom Riddle. You know, he sees the good or the potential good, and I think that's something that he's always had.”
