Eddie Redmayne didn’t want to be the one who screwed Fantastic Beasts up
Eddie Redmayne said he was worried about ruining Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them because he is such a huge fan of the Harry Potter movies.
The Oscar-winning actor is a huge fan of the Harry Potter movies and admitted to some nerves about taking on the role of Newt Scamander in the upcoming spin-off, reported Contactmusic.
“Of course you feel pressure. Also, particularly because I loved the Potter films. There was something so warming about being able to dive back into that world every year or two. And if you’ve enjoyed something, you don’t want to be the one who comes in and screws it up,” he said.
“But pressure’s there with every film. With The Theory of Everything it was knowing Stephen and Jane Hawking and the family would see the film. With The Danish Girl it was all the people that I’d met in preparation for the film who came from the trans community. It’s pressure here of a different type, which is called hardcore fandom.”
