One of many causes we selected Jude is he has most of the qualities we discover in Dumbledore within the Potter movies. He is obtained authority, he is obtained a twinkle in his eye, he is typically a bit elliptical. So you might have that but in addition have this youthful power and jubilance. So he brings that twinkle, mischief, authority, and energy, however on the identical time brings far younger power to the movie. You perceive why he can be your favourite instructor and be somebody you imagine is a rare wizard.
