The last few years have seen a number of high-profile arrests and charges involving Ezra Miller. Warner Bros. is still working hard to deal with this actor’s most recent scandals for the lead part in The Flash, despite the recent controversies. The director of Dalland, another film starring Ezra Miller in the character of a young Salvador Dali, has her own thoughts on the contentious actor’s most recent antics.
The non-binary actor is receiving therapy for “complicated mental health concerns,” therefore Dalland director Mary Harron does not anticipate them attending the Toronto International Film Festival premiere. The Fantastic Beasts actor, Harron, stressed the significance of concentrating on their therapy at this time in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s been very distressing and I’m glad that they have sought treatment and I don’t think they should be doing anything besides getting treatment right now.
James, a teenage art aficionado, was meant to be played by the 29-year-old actor, but Miller was already scheduled to appear in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore as Credence Barebones. Miller portrayed the smaller role of the young Dal, who would be seen in a sequence of flashbacks, while Christopher Briney, from The Summer I Turned Pretty, took on the larger role of James. According to Harron, The Flash actor embraced the part in the same way Sir Ben Kingsley did when portraying the earlier Dal. According to Variety, Harron had no intention of removing Miller from her movie because all of the criticism surrounding the actor happened after filming was finished and there were no on-set issues.
Since 2020, the actor from The Perks of Being a Wallflower has been the target of numerous accusations and instances of irrational behaviour. Miller apparently posed as a cult leader at an Airbnb in Iceland while filming for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore was reportedly postponed for several months due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Locals claimed they were scared of Miller’s dramatic outbursts. During this time, a video of them choking a woman at a bar and being led away appeared on social media. They spent months travelling the country while donning a bulletproof vest because they thought the Ku Klux Klan was pursuing them.
When Ezra Miller was accused with disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke club in March 2022, the arrests began to take place. When they heard customers singing a karaoke version of “Shallow” from A Star is Born, they reportedly became “agitated,” yelled “obscenities,” grabbed the microphone, and lunged at a man playing darts. They were freed after posting a $500 bond by the couple they shared a hostel room with. The same couple who bailed them out, however, also sought a restraining order against them after Miller returned home after being bailed out and allegedly threatened to bury the couple and their “slut wife” while also stealing the wife’s passport and the husband’s wallet.
Despite the fact that the restraining order was imposed that day, they were happy to learn that it was later lifted in mid-April. Nevertheless, Miller was detained once more three weeks later in Hawaii after it was claimed that he had hit a woman with a chair, leaving a half-inch cut on her forehead.
The future of Ezra Miller and their participation in The Flash were on the line. Fortunately, Miller’s choice to seek therapy was influenced by the DC film, since they didn’t want their beloved superhero production to risk being shelved. They therefore appear to have made the right choice by publishing a statement of regret and emphasising their mental health problems.
Mary Harron of Dalland seems to be in favour of Ezra Miller getting treatment. They can have a good profession in the future if they set priorities and regulate their chaotic conduct. The forthcoming DC movie The Flash is scheduled to have its theatrical debut on June 23, 2023, and Dalland is scheduled to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 17, 2022.
