Actress Carmen Ejogo, of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, gave an interview to Vogue magazine where she talked about her career and her new role in the Canadian movie Born to Be Blue. She also spoke a bit about Fantastic Beasts:
“I’m playing the president of a wizard association in the new Harry Potter movie [Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them]. We filmed in England, and it comes out in November. It was very exciting to be part of that legacy and to be part of the expansion of that aesthetic. I mean, on the topic of diversity, there’s a whole swathe of children who didn’t know they could engage in that because it was a very white, British thing. I feel very lucky—I’ve had a chance to morph and shape-shift throughout my career, and so to be a part of broadening this world in this way is very exciting to me.”
