Some of the actors of colour suggested by tumblr for Newt Scamander following casting news for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Newt’s grandson, Rolf Scamander, is described as “swarthy”, meaning dark skinned and it potentially codes him as POC. This opens up the possibility of Newt himself being POC since British does not mean white only.
