Let’s welcome “Divergent” actress Zoë Kravitz to the wizarding world!
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Warner Bros. added the young star to the cast and according to an insider, Kravitz was added after production began. Apparently, she will be acting in a small role in the first film, with plans for her to return with more to do in the sequel, which will be released in November 2018.
Though the 2nd film for “Fantastic Beasts” is already underway, it’s uncertain what role will Kravitz be playing in the “Harry Potter” spin-off franchise.
“Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them” is based on J.K. Rowling’s original script and it is set in New York City during the 1920s, which is about 70 years before the events of “Harry Potter” aka “The Boy Who Lived”. The story follows the adventures of a distinguished Magiczoologist known as Newt Scamander (played by Eddie Redmayme) and it features the wizarding community in the US.
Best known for her role as Christina in the “Divergent” series, 27-year-old Zoë Kravitz made her feature film debut in Scott Hicks’ rom-com “No Reservations” (2007). She also starred in several hit movies such as “X-Men: First Class” (2011), “Mad Max: Fury Road” (2015), and “Dope” (2015).
