Ezra Miller wants to make sure that you know this article contains spoilers for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. After he starts with some chit-chat about our biblical names, he asks: "Are you going to put a huge spoiler warning on the top of the article?" So here it is. Your warning. Got it? Good. Now on to those spoilers.
In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, released in 2016, Miller plays a character called Credence Barebone. In 2018, after Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Gindelwald, we know who that person really is -- or at least we think we do. According to evil wizard Gellert Grindelwald, Credence is Aurelius Dumbledore. Yes, of those Dumbledores. Miller, a rampant Potter fan, was just as surprised as audiences have been when he heard this. (Especially thanks to a confusing misunderstanding.) With the promise that would "protect the secrets" -- as goes the hashtag -- Miller told me what he could.
But because this is Miller -- who is chatty, erudite, and the kind of person who will go to a premiere in a full on homage to Harry's owl Hedwig -- we cover a lot more than just Aurelius.
