Amid the sorrow, anger has erupted among fans protesting the misidentification of Reiky as his fandom character, James Potter. @mtwtincidents tweeted: “Context: Reiky de Valk, an actor popularly fancasted for James, has sadly passed away. This should go without saying, but he wasn’t just the fancast for a fictional character. He was an actual person, and it is not appropriate to compare them at this time, as many people are doing.”
