"It was. I was a russian ringmaster. I had a scène with Credence. I didn't make the final film. Hopefully it'll be in Fantastic Beasts 2." -Henry Douthwaite
"He has a moment of doubt and this strange ringmaster passes and tells him if he stays "they'll kill him"!!" -Henry Douthwaite
"I don't know if he joins the circus or not. He may just be travelling with them" -Henry Douthwaite
Henry Douthwaite would normally play Skender (the owner of a wizarding circus) in the upcoming fantastic Beasts movie. However, this was before his scene with Ezra Miller(Credence Barebone) was cut from Fantastic Beasts 1! Douthwaite was recast by Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, who from then on would play Skender’s role. This was possible because they clearly wanted an actor with a bigger name.
Guys! Credence joins the circus. Maybe that explains why Credence has a different hair style. Maybe it’s a kind of disguise because people wanted to kill him etc? I’m so hyped!
