I Am Not As Happy As I Pretend To Be: Ezra Miller

Actor Ezra Miller says that he is not as happy as he pretends to be. Miller is going to be back on the big screen with the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, in which he plays Credence Barebone, who is very introverted. He related his role with her real life when asked about his take on introverts in real life saying, "You have to pretend you are extrovert when you do interviews, especially if you have introvert tendencies. You have to perform. It is hard to judge a book even by the first 75 pages.

"There's a part of me which identify with Credence, with certain elements of his journey on different points are applied on different landscapes of my life...

"I am not as happy as I try to pretend to be all the time," added the actor during a roundtable discussion here while promoting the project.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is the second movie in the planned five films for the Harry Potter spin-off franchise. The first part titled Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them came out back in 2016.

"There are big reveals in the film," Miller teased.

When asked about his role, he said: "It is about trying to figure out who you are and where you stand. I think our characters (Credence and Claudia Kim's Nagini) have particularly tough time with that.

"They might be little way behind when it comes to figuring out ways to figure things out. We are coming from rejection and obscurity to try and make sense of who we are and where we stand and our current situation."
The film also stars Eddie Redmayne as the main character Newt Scamander, as well as Jude Law as a young Albus Dumbledore and Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald. It is all set to drop on November 16.
