He is known for films including Hannibal and Doctor Strange. 

The Danish actor replaced Johnny Depp, 59, to play Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

In August last year, he praised Johnny as an ‘amazing actor’ and said the star may return to the Fantastic Beasts film franchise after his legal victory against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Speaking at the Sarajevo Film Festival, Deadline reported that Mads described taking over the role as ‘very intimidating’ and spoke about the reason for Johnny’s departure from the film – his libel case against his ex-wife.

He said: ‘Obviously, well, now the course has changed – he won the suit, the court [case] – so let’s see if he comes back. He might.

‘I’m a big fan of Johnny. I think he’s an amazing actor, I think he did a fantastic job.’

Mads continued: ‘Having said that, I could not copy it. There’s there was no way I could just copy it, because it’s so much him. It would be creative suicide.

‘So, we had to come up with something else, something that was mine, and build a bridge between him and me. So, yes, it was intimidating.

‘His fans were very, very sweet, but they were also very stubborn. I didn’t interact too much with them, but I could understand why they had their hearts broken.’
