Eddie Redmayne who will be seen draping the new character as Newt Scamander in JK Rowling's magical world, in the forthcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, reveals his favourite Harry Potter novel. Eddie plays the protagonist in the movie.
The Academy-award-winning Eddie Redmayne also says that he loves watching the end of the Harry Potter movie series and that he loves watching the duel between Ralph Fiennes and Daniel Radcliffe a number of times.
"When you're casting spells on set, the effects of this huge tension of what's coming out of your wand is put into the shot in post-production; you're literally acting with nothing, and I found it so operatic and deeply moving. I found it so climatically satisfying." said the actor.
He then marked Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as his favourite novel. He said, "I suppose I'd go with the first. My little brother, when he was 6 years old, he would always read it, and it had that instant immersion into the world that made you release your imagination."
The actor seems totally engrossed in the Harry Potter world now and also seems pretty excited about the upcoming release. He added, "There was a whole family of ginger people and at some point I thought I'd be in that!"
