Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them has added another member to its cast. It has been announced that Katherine Waterson will be joining the cast.

Waterson has recently stared in Inherent Vice, as well as Robot and Frank and Michael Clayton.

According to the article, Waterson will be playing the role of Tina, or Porpentina, a witch who operates in the US. Waterson beat out multiple actresses for this role, including Dakota Fanning, Saoirse Ronan and Lili Simmons.

The film is set to revolve around the character of Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who documents magical creatures, and wrote about his discoveries in his book, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them.

The film takes place 70 years before the events of the Harry Potter franchise, and will explore the American side of the Harry Potter Universe. Here’s hoping that it can live up to the high standard of quality that people expect from the franchise.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
