Putting the drama aside, many are wondering how Mikkelsen will be introduced and now returns Fantastic beasts star Katherine Waterston has provided a surprising insight, revealing that she will not be sharing scenes with the actor in the upcoming sequel.
“You know, I was hanging out with Mads in Venice. We were there at the same time this summer and I had never met him and had a great time with him. He’s totally sweet. But that was before he was cast … I think that’s right – I think it was just before he was cast and we don’t have anything together in the movie so unfortunately I don’t know what it’s like working with him , but maybe one day we will. “
