Actress Claudia Kim finally breaks the silence about playing Nagini in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
As the final trailer for The Crimes of Grindelwald just revealed, a big name from the Harry Potter books is a major part of the new Fantastic Beasts film. And yes, you’ve read correctly: the name you’re so familiar with is Nagini.
Until now, Warner Bros. hasn’t disclosed the name of the character played by South Korean actress Claudia Kim in the movie. Kim is none other than Nagini, a circus performer with a unique power who years later becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty killer serpent and Horcrux. Check out the video above where Kim, after keeping this secret for more than a year, is finally allowed to publicly speak her character’s name for the first time.
In the new film, Nagini is a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles.
Kim says Nagini is far from the villain one might expect from a character who, after all, eventually kills Severus Snape. “It will be so interesting to see another side of Nagini,” Kim tells EW. “You’ve only seen her as a Horcrux. In this, she’s a wonderful and vulnerable woman who wants to live. She wants to stay a human being and I think that’s a wonderful contrast to the character.”
The final official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been released.
I really suggest you simply go and see it for yourselves. The final trailer easily the darkest one yet and actually contains a couple big surprises. The headline coming out of this is that Claudia Kim’s character has been revealed and it’s a major name in the Harry Potter universe. The South Korean actress is playing Nagini — a human “Maledictus” who eventually becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty snake. As we meet Nagini, she’s a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles. Check out EW’s exclusive new interview with Kim talking about her character here.
Another reveal: We see a glimpse of a flashback showing Dumbledore and Grindelwald back while they were students. That’s right, we now will have an even younger Dumbledore! It’s a brief shot in the trailer as they both touch the Mirror of Erised.
The trailer is also stuffed with magical action as an ensemble of characters prepare to contend with the dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) following his escape from prison while being transferred to Europe. Grindelwald begins to gather followers using both seductive logic and menacing force.
Just ahead of the release of the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald TODAY, a batch of nine new character posters has been released for the upcoming film on Twitter by the movie’s official UK account. Each poster features a profile shot of the movie’s characters with text that notes something of interest about the characters.
We added the posters in high quality to our photo gallery. Enjoy and stay tuned for more to come. Especially the trailer.

Author J.K. Rowling confirmed the theory about Hermione pronouncing her name in the fourth book to prevent her readers from continuing to mispronounce it.
“It’s LeviOsa, not LeviosAR!” – Hermione Granger’s character is well known for correcting a pronunciation or two, such as one of her most iconic moments where she schooled Ron Weasley on the levitation spell. It was not only characters in the books that mispronounced spells or even names, but also fans and readers of the book series. Many readers were saying Hermione all sorts of ways before the fourth book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released and J.K. Rowling included a passage about the correct pronunciation. It looks like J.K. Rowling has a bit of Hermione in her, as the author just confirmed that she added it in to avoid any more confusion for readers.
A tweet from a fan brought up a long-time theory regarding a passage in the fourth book where Viktor Krum kept pronouncing her name as Her-my-own. The heroine corrected him and fans everywhere, by announcing it as Her-my-oh-nee slowly and clearly.
J.K. Rowling responded to the fan’s tweet, confirming that her intentions here were to school readers on how to say her name above anything else.

According to BBC Two, the movie is a short film and is the fifth movie to be part of the “It’s My Shout: Short Film from Wales” series. The synopsis can be read below:
Jude wasn’t like the rest of the kids on his street – he spent most of 1994 in a pair of his mum’s tights, pretending to be Christopher Dean, much to his dad’s annoyance. When dad finally snaps, the result is somewhat unexpected.

Exciting rumors have been announced, Luna fans! Actress Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) is said to join the cast of “Dancing With the Stars”.
Dancing With the Stars is gearing up for its twenty-seventh season, and while the entire cast has yet to be announced, some details about the ensemble have started to trickle out. One recent piece of information is that Evanna Lynch, our beloved Luna Lovegood, has joined DWTS, as reported by Us Weekly.
A lot more rumors about who is joining the upcoming season are going around. Meanwhile, ABC only revealed on Good Morning America this Tuesday, as per Entertainment Tonight, that Disney star Milo Manheim will be paired up with Dancing With the Stars pro Witney Carson for the upcoming season.
For those who have never watched the show before, here is some information about how the show works.
The competition begins with an all-new cast of celebrities who will be paired up with the show’s pro dancers and brave the dance floor for the very first time. Each week these celebrities will leave their comfort zones and endure hours of grueling rehearsals to master new dance styles and technical choreography to perform a dance, which will be judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts as well as voted upon by viewers. In the end, only one star will rise above the rest to be crowned champion and win the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
So, we are quite certain that Dancing With The Stars asks for a little bit more complex dancing techniques and dance-steps than what Luna had to cope with during Yule Ball. However, Luna would undoubtedly just have a good time and not worry about the judges, or cameras, or what anyone else thinks, for that matter.

Actress Katie Leung (Cho Chang) hopes the rise in Asian representation in film and TV “isn’t a blip”.
Katie Leung – who portrayed our beloved Cho Chang and now stars in ITV’s Strangers – has applauded the rise in Asian representation in film and TV, but cautioned that true equality is still a way off. There has been a positive reaction the world over to Asian-led movies and series, including the US box-office hit Crazy Rich Asians and Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.
But 31-year-old Leung told Digital Spy and other press that she’s “really yet to play a role that is not down to the colour of [her] skin”.
“I hope the increase in Asian representation in film and TV isn’t a blip,” she said. “I think that America is probably doing slightly better in terms of diversity, but I like to think that we are getting somewhere in terms of representation.”
The actress, who was born in Scotland and is of Hong Kong descent, added: “In the 15 years that I have been acting, I have really yet to play a role that is not down to the colour of my skin, so I can’t say that I have experienced anything like that yet, but I look forward to that day.
