“It’s a very hard thing for me,” Radcliffe said, pointing out that it's the same film production team on Fantastic Beasts who “gave me a great start in life and an amazing job.”

But then Radcliffe gave criticism, saying he didn't understand the film's support for Depp. “I can see why people are frustrated with the response that they were given from that," said Radcliffe.

In Radcliffe's mind, this support was especially troubling in light of the treatment towards Jamie Waylett, who played Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe. After appearing in six Harry Potter films, Waylett was dropped from the film franchise after being arrested for growing 10 marijuana plants in 2009.

This doesn't seem consistent or fair to Radcliffe compared to Depp's treatment.

Said Radcliffe:

"I’m not saying anything that anybody hasn’t already said — and this is a weird analogy to draw — (but) in the NFL, there are lots of players arrested for smoking weed and there is other people’s behavior that goes way beyond that and it’s tolerated because they’re very famous players. I suppose the thing I was struck by was, we did have a guy who was reprimanded for weed on the (Potter) film, essentially, so obviously what Johnny has been accused of is much greater than that.”

Fantastic Beasts director David Yates and producer David Heyman (who produced the Harry Potter films) put out a statement in November addressing Depp's casting in light of Heard's allegations.

"None of us involved in Fantastic Beasts would ever let our appreciation of talent obscure other, far more important considerations," their statement said. "We recognized the magnitude of the issues raised and understood the strength of feeling expressed. We hoped and strived at all times to be sensitive to both parties.
