JK Rowling explains how Percival Graves conceal his secret

The British author has revealed how the powerful character Percival Graves managed to conceal his true identity from the presidency and the natural legilimen witch Queenie. Beware that following these lines you can be caught up by a spoiler about the first movie of the Fantastic Beasts.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them transported Harry Potter fans to a new magical era. The main character Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) crosses the streets of New York in 20s, through the experiences of the magizoologist; followers of the magical universe of J.K. Rowling learned how this new community of witches and wizards is.

However as the world created by the British author is laid for our sights, every detail is analyzed and many questions about the movie are arisen by the fans. A recent common one is related to Percival Graves (Colin Farrell), a powerful auror of MACUSA, whose secret is revealed at the end of the episode, and who actually turned out to be the evil Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp).

How did he block Queenie?

A Twitter user has realized that if Queenie (Alison Sudol) is a legilimen witch and can read the thoughts of people, why did not she realize that Percival was not really himself when Grindelwald posed as him? The question has come to Rowling, who has responded with a single word: occlumency.

This discipline already appeared in the saga of Harry Potter and, as you know, is the art of protecting your own thoughts. In addition, in the saga on the young magician brought to life by Daniel Radcliffe, Snape (Alan Rickman) is one of the major specialists of this art next to Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon). Now we have to add another name to that list.

After the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the story of Newt Scamander and Gellert Grindelwad will continue with its sequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. Now, remember the first installment of the saga with the trailer you will find on these lines.
