Russian actor Alexander Kuznetsov starred in the third part of the film "Fantastic Beasts"

On December 14, the Instagram account of the British agency Subtitle Talent reported that 29-year-old Alexander Kuznetsov starred in the third part of the film Fantastic Beasts. They noted that in the film directed by David Yates, Kuznetsov played a "key role" - he played a character named Helmut. This, apparently, is about the wizard Helmut Weiss - one of the 12 Aurors of the Magical Control Congress for North America.

Colleagues of the Russian actor in the film, which was filmed according to the script of the author of the Harry Potter books JK Rowling, were such famous movie stars as Mads Mikkelsen (he replaced Johnny Depp , who was "removed" from the project after he was found guilty of domestic violence against his ex-wife Amber Heard ), Jude Law , Eddie Redmayne and Ezra Miller.


The participation of Kuznetsov in the film became known at the end of last year. The actor himself did not share the details and did not tell what role he got in the film.

Alexander Kuznetsov is one of the most promising young Russian actors. He starred in the films "Summer" by Kirill Serebrennikov , "Acid" by Alexander Gorchilin, and the series "Kept Women".

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore will premiere in April 2022. The first official trailer has already been released.
