When asked what will differentiate his Grindelwald from Johnny Depp’s interpretation of the character, the Danish actor said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly:
“Well, it will be me, so that’s a difference (laughs). No, honestly that’s the tricky part. We are still working on it. There has to be a bridge between what Johnny did and what I’m going to do. And at the same time I have to make the role my own. But we also have to find a few connections and some bridges so that the character doesn’t completely detach itself from what Johnny has already masterfully achieved. “

Words of love for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
When asked about his reaction to the commitment, which came about under such dramatic circumstances, Mikkelsen replied:
“In terms of work, of course, it’s super interesting and nice. However, it’s also shocking that the role offer came after these events, which is just super sad. I wish both the best. These are sad circumstances. I hope that the two will get better soon and that they will both be back in the saddle soon. “
