The worst kept secret continues to be exposed. Fantastic Beasts’ Dumbledore actor Jude Law was spotted with a beard near Lacock Abbey.
As we’ve been telling you over the past couple weeks, filming for Fantastic Beasts 2 has taken place at Lacock Abbey near Bath, England in late August and early September. For the uninitiated: Lacock Abbey was used for several Hogwarts scenes in the original Harry Potter film series.
Earlier this week we shared a photo of actors wearing cloaks (link above), seemingly confirming that Lacock Abbey is being used for Hogwarts scenes in the Fantastic Beasts sequel. And it’s not just extras on the scene: Jude Law was recently spotted by a fan. Check out that little beard — it might be what Dumbledore’s beard looks like in Fantastic Beasts 2.
Law was also spotted at a local restaurant, offering an even better look at what Jude Law Dumbledore might look like:

Said a member of the Lacock Parish Council, “It’s been a big set, but it’s been kept under close wraps. All the main stars have been here, it’s been very exciting.”
Fantastic Beasts 2 will hit theaters in November 2018 with a script by J.K. Rowling. Hogwarts is expected to be used for several scenes, including Newt going to Dumbledore for help fighting Grindelwald.
