Gambon, Gambon Interviews, News

Earlier this week, Michael Gambon attended the premiere of his newest film appearance, Dad’s Army. He reportedly told the Express that he would love a role in the Fantastic Beasts film series, perhaps as a ‘young Dumbledore’:

“I want to be in it, yes,” he confirmed. 

“They’ve got a Dumbledore. They’ll have a young Dumbledore, won’t they? But I could be his dad. They could flashback to me.”

“Can you mention it to them if you see them? I’d like to be his dad.”

Gambon also said a few kind words regarding Alan Rickman’s recent passing:

“Ah Alan, my friend, my close friend… It’s very upsetting he’s not here,” Sir Gambon said. “I was in Harry Potter with him for years and it’s awful.

“Alan was such a lovely bloke, a complete actor and helpful with everybody. Creative. We just miss him.”

You can see Michael in Dad’s Army, in cinemas from February 5th!
