The look of him is similar enough to Michael Gambon, and I think there is some makeup devices to aid that along. The ...

Re: Fantastic Beasts movie #2 - The Crimes of Grindelwald

I already knew that Grindelwald had pale blond hair -- and it doesn't seem much of a step to bleach it white. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/harrypotter/images/5/5a/Dumbledore_Grindelwald.png/revision/latest?cb=20161124210150 Picture of Albus Dumbledore and Gellert Grindelwald As a young man, G...

Re: Pet Discussion #3

I like cats. I was lucky enough to grow up with both a cat and dogs, so a tendency to prefer one to the other because of early exposure (or lack of it) as a kid passed me by.
