Thewlis talks about Dumbledore
David Thewlis, the actor who plays Professor Lupin in the Harry Potter series recently did an interview while promoting his new book, “The Late Hector Kipling” in Toronto for the International Festival of Authors. One of the questions he answered was in response to the recent news concerning Dumbledore's character, saying he initially believed Lupin to be gay:
“The funny thing when Alfonso Cuaron directed 'The Prisoner of Azkaban,' the first film that I appear in, he had the idea that Lupin was gay and he described my character like a 'gay junkie.' And of course Lupin turns out not to be gay because he marries Tonks and has children.”
Thanks to Tonya and Susie for sending this in!
