JK Rowling defends casting of a Korean actress as Voldemort’s snake Nagini

British novelist, JK Rowling has defended the casting of a Korean actress as Voldemort’s snake Nagini in the Fantastic Beasts sequel.

The latest trailer has revealed Claudia Kim as Nagini and sees her transform into a snake.

Some have criticised the fact that the only Asian actor in the cast plays a reptile that is a villain’s slave but JK Rowling tweeted that Nagini is based on “the Naga”, which are “snake-like mythical creatures of Indonesian mythology.”
