( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
( BAND PLAYING )>>HELLO.>>Stephen: HELLO. FINE, HOW ARE YOU?>>VERY WELL. GOOD TO BE HERE.>>Stephen: THE LAST TIME YOU
WERE HERE WE TALKED ABOUT YOUR SHOW “YOUNG POPE,” NOW YOU’RE
PLAYING YOUNG DUMBELDORE.>>YES. I GOT TO MIDDLE AGE AND I
INSISTED ON EVERY PART HAVING THE WORD “YOUNG” AND IT’S
WORKING OUT GREAT FOR ME.>>YEAH. JUST TO BOOST MY EGO.>>Stephen: I’M GOING TO BOOST
YOUR EGO MORE IN A MOMENT IN CASE YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M
GOING TO TALK ABOUT IN THAT YOU HAVE QUITE A FEW FANS WHO HAVE
APPROVED OF THE CASTING OF YOU AS YOUNG DUMBELDORE AND YOU’VE
GOTTEN SOME NICKNAMES. TELL ME WHICH ONES YOU LIKE THE
MOST.>>OKAY. DUMBLE DADDY. ID MY KIDS COME UP WITH THAT
ONE?>>Stephen: DUMBLE DAM, OR MY
PERSONAL FAVORITE YUMBLEDORE.>>Stephen: DUMBLE DAM, OR MY
PERSONAL FAVORITE YUMBLEDORE. ( LAUGHTER )
>>IT HAS A CULINARY FEEL TO IT.>>Stephen: IT DOES. I’M GOING TO STICK TO
DUMBLEDAMN. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: YOU HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO J.K. ROWLING, HAVEN’T
YOU?>>WHEN I GOT THE PART I THOUGHT
I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO THE FANS OF THE WIZARDING WORLD. ALSO I WANTED TO MEET
J.K. ROWLING. IT SEEMED TO BE AN INROAD. SHE TOLD ME EVERYTHING AND IT
WAS A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR AN ACTOR. I HAD THE DIRECT ROUTE TO THE
DETAILED WORKINGS OF MY CHARACTER. SHE’S A FORMIDABLE SMART WOMAN. GREAT COMPANY.>>Stephen: DID YOU LEARN
ANYTHING YOU CAN SHARE WITH US?>>OF COURSE NOT. ( LAUGHTER )
THEY’RE VERY POLITE. IT’S ALWAYS LIKE WE ASSUME
YOU’RE NOT GOING TO SHARE THIS WITH ANYBODY. WHAT CAN I TELL YOU — I REALIZE
IT’S BEEN FUN. NYMI’M IN A RARE POSITION THAT
PLAYED A CHARACTER THAT I GET TO LAYER UP THE COMPLEXITIES AND
INNER DRAMA AND TURMOILS AND PERSONAL TRAGEDIES, EVEN, ABOUT
HIM. IT’S ALL IN THE BOOKS. WE GET TO UNPICK ALL OF THAT IN
DETAIL NOW THAT WE’RE BACK IN THE 1920s. SO IT’S A GOOD POSITION TO BE
IN.>>Stephen: AND WE KNOW FROM
THE BOOKS THAT HE WAS A CHILDHOOD OR AS A YOUNG MAN HE
WAS A FRIEND OF GRINDELWALD.>>HE HAD AN INTIMATE AND
EXTRAORDINARY RELATIONSHIP THAT PROPELLED THE TWO OF THEM IN
OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS AND THESE SAGAS ARE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED
AND WHY IT PROPELLED THEM IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS.>>Stephen: HAVING TO PLAY A
YOUNGER VERSION OF MENTOR CHARACTER, HAVE YOU PLAYED TO
YOUNG GREGOR.>>HE’S THE ONLY ACTOR THAT I
KNOW THAT HAS PHONE THROUGH. THIS HE’S AN OLD FRIEND, BUT WE
DON’T SEE EACH OTHER MUCH ANYMORE.>>Stephen: OKAY. I’LL CALL HIM. I DON’T I DID ANYTHING WRONG. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: THE NAME GRINDELWALD, THEY SAY
GRINDEL-VALD IN THE MOVIE.>>I CALL HIM THAT ASSUMING I
HAD A GOOD FRIENDSHIP WITH HIM.>>I CALL HIM THAT ASSUMING I
HAD A GOOD FRIENDSHIP WITH HIM. EDDIE SAID I CALL HIM
GRINDELWALD. HE SAID WOULD YOU PLEASE CALL ME
GRINDEL-VALD? I’M STICKING WITH THAT.>>Stephen: ARE YOU ASSUMING
THEY WON’T MAKE A LEAK?>>I ALSO JUST COMPLETED A FILM
FOR CAPTAIN MARVEL.>>Stephen: I DO KNOW THIS IS
YOU RIGHT THERE. I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. I THOUGHT YOU WERE MARVEL. YOU’RE NOT MARVEL.>>I CAN’T TELL YOU WHO AI I AM.>>Stephen: BUT YOU’RE NOT OR
ARE MARVEL.>>I CAN’T TELL YOU WHO I AM. NICE TRY.>>Stephen: OKAY. WHEN YOU’RE DOING “FANTASTIC
BEASTS,” I THINK IT MIGHT BE THIS BRITISH AMERICAN
DIFFERENCE, WITH “FANTASTIC BEASTS,” THEY’RE, LIKE, YOU KNOW
WE ASSUME YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GIVE ANY OF THESE SECRETS AWAY
AND IF YOU DO WE’RE GOING TO TELL YOU NOT TO AGAIN AND WE MAY
QUIETLY KILL YOU. IN MARVEL, IT’S LIKE DON’T YOU
( BLEEP ) EVER TILL ANYBODY ABOUT THIS! ( LAUGHTER )
AND THERE WAS A GUY HIRED, I PROMISE YOU, ON SET, THEY WOULD
SAY, WE’RE READY FOR YOU, AND YOU WOULD STEP OUT IN YOUR SUIT
AND THEY WOULD SAY PUT THE CLOAK ON! PUT THE HOOD ON! HIDE! MY CHILDREN WERE HAVE ITING THE
SET AND THEY WERE SAYING, SIGN THE N.D.A.s! WHO ARE THESE GUYS? IT WAS TIGHT AND SCARY.>>Stephen: SO ARE YOU MARVEL? ( LAUGHTER )
I CAN’T WAIT FOR BOTH MOVIES. SO NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN. “FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF
GRINDELWALD” OPENS IN THEATERS NEXT FRIDAY. JUDE LAW, EVERYBODY!
