Extract from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The original screenplay

By J.K. Rowling

Brown soup is being ladled out to the children, who jostle each other to get near the front of the line. MARY LOU wearing an apron and looking on approvingly, squeezes though the little crowd.

MARY LOU

Collect you leaflets before you get food, children.

Several of the children turn towards CHASTITY, who waits primly, handing out campaign leaflets.

TIME CUT:

MARY LOU and CREDENCE ladle out soup, CREDENCE looking intently into every face.

A BOY with a birthmark on his face reaches the front of the line. CREDENCE stops his work and stares at him. MARY LOU reaches out to touch the BOY’S face.

BOY

Is it a witch’s mark, ma’am?

MARY LOU

No. He’s okay.

The BOY takes his soup and leaves. CREDENCE stares after him, as they continue to serve.
