Ezra Miller

“Credence is the aged child of violence. He’s grown up partially in a foster home where he still lives, and in a community where there’s a prerogative to stamp out a certain idea of what is abnormal. And the rub lies in the fact that Credence himself is abnormal and as a result he’s subjected to violence and a violent form of indoctrination, and I guess the character is an exploration of the resultant trauma. It could also be stated more simply that he’s just a kid who hasn’t been loved or seen or cherished for who he is.”
