Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald


We follow Newt's continuing adventures in the Wizarding World as he is enlisted by Hogwart's professor Albus Dumbledore to help thwart Grindelwald's dastardly plan of rising pure-blood wizards to ruling over all non-magical beings.

  • I worked on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and loved it. It was my first ever supporting artist work in the UK. Thank you Uni-versal Extras for this opportunity!

  • This was my first extra role and one of the best experiences I have ever had!. I loved how in-character we got to be; we even had our own wands to use! Everyone was extremely nice and respectful. The set itself was also amazing. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of my favourite franchise. 

    -Julija  |  Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald

  • I got to do my first ever extra role as a Dock Worker on the set of Fantastic Beasts at Warner Bros Studios. I found the whole crew to be exceptional, professional and fantastic. It felt like negative zero on set with arctic winds that tested everyone's resilience, but we all worked together as a team to make sure everyone stayed warm.
