Fantastic Beasts on TF1: This French actor said no to the crimes of Grindelwald – Actus Ciné

“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” airs this Sunday night on TF1. The opportunity to remember that a famous French actor refused to take part in the second part of the magic saga!

The feature film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which aired on TF1 this Sunday night, almost had a certain Omar Sy in the credits! But the French actor politely declined the offer to star in the second part of the magic saga.

It was 2016 on the show Au Tableau! on C8, thatOmar Sy revealed he said no to a role in Fantastic Beasts 2. “I think I just turned down one that’s going to be a hit”, he then said. “It’s spinning now, which I think will work. It’s the sequel to Fantastic Beasts, the sequel to Harry Potter.”

And Omar Sy to explain the reasons for this refusal. “The role it contained was repetitive. I’ve done that before.”he said. “I don’t want to arrive on a set and be jaded. That means being there as if it were normal. It’s extraordinary to be on a film set and I want to preserve that wonder when I’m there. If I start doing the things I’ve already done, it won’t be terrible.

A year before the show Au Tableau!, Omar Sy revealed himself to our microphone that he often turned down roles in the United States. “To be perfectly honest, I rejected more than I accepted in Hollywood! Because I don’t have much time anymore”, he explained to us. “And then I don’t take everything that comes! Anything that comes up isn’t necessarily what I want to try. It is curiosity, desire that guides me.”

“So yeah, I want to shoot there, I’m having fun. There are really great projects, I did great things there. But I’m not ready for everything and I don’t want everything there”the actor continues. “There are things to take away and things to throw away, like everywhere, like in France. (…) I try that each project is not a repetition of the other. I tried everything I could to try to tell myself one day. discover new things.”

Omar Sy has enjoyed a fine career across the Atlantic, including roles in X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jurassic World, Jurassic World: The World After (in theaters June 8) and Transformers: The Last Knight, where he lends his voice ( in the VO) to the character of Hot Rod.
