'I kept Nagini's secret for twenty years,' says JK Rowling of the character in 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald'


Last Tuesday (25), the internet almost broke with the release of the final trailer - before the premiere - of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and the video, brought a revelation that shocked fans of Witch World in J.K. Rowling: finally, the revelation of the character of the actress Claudia Kim, which had been kept under lock and key.

In fact, much more than that. The day before the trailer was released, Rowling and the cast of the film, were on the show TODAY Show, in New York, as part of the beginning of the film's tour. In a short but important interview, the screenwriter warned that during the video, a name would be announced.

Except the theories of youtubers/ digital influencers and fans of the saga Harry Potter, it was speculated that Kim would be the Nagini, thanks to an art of Circus Arcanus, where it showed a woman transforming herself into a giant snake under the name “Maledictus“. Until that moment, nothing had been confirmed by Rowling, through the Warner or even, by the cast, who already knew, obviously.

After the video was released, fans interacted with the writer through her profile on Twitter, where questions were answered by the same. One of them, a fan asked how long Rowling had kept the secret of Nagini. “Only for about twenty years“Replied the screenwriter.

In an interview with the portal Entertainment Weekly, the actress Claudia Kim told how his character will be approached in the feature. “It will be very interesting to see another side of Nagini. You just saw it as a Horcrux. In this film, she is a wonderful and vulnerable woman who wants to live“, Declared the actress. “She wants to continue as a human being and I think that gives a great contrast to the character we were so afraid of“Revealed Kim.

Still in the publication, Claudia explains that in the past, Nagini he was able to control himself when he turned and yet, because of a curse in his blood (maybe that's why the name comes Maledictus), she knew she would become a snake permanently in a short time.

"She feels that she sometimes cannot control the transformation. She is bound to permanently turn into an animal at a certain point, so feel this pressure that time is running out for her", said.
