"It's pretty mindblowing to me...a moment earlier with Dan. I was standing on the top of the stairs of
the bank, and just looking down, and the scale of extras, the scale of the set, the detail of the set, it felt
like - with all the kind of manholes fuming, it felt like as it were old age Hollywood, here in Watford."

The vast, realistic sets on the Warner Bros. Leavesden backlot will make you feel like you
traveled back to 1920s New York City in this #FantasticBeasts 360 video.

He looks very short in these screenshots, because the panoramic camera distorts
the image, but at least we can see what would he look like as Bilbo Baggins 😂.
I made some correction (strech), here are my modified pics.

Red Nose Day 2017 - Stephen Hawking's New Voice

Stephen Hawking has had the same trademark voice for 30 years and has now decided
it's time for a change. Watch him view the audition tapes from hopeful celebrities...
Written by Daniel Audritt, Kat Butterfield, Jon Aird and the cast.

Eddie Redmayne, who took home the Oscar for his portrayal of Hawking in the film The Theory 
of Everything, sent in his tape — though he was a little annoyed that he even had to audition. 
 “So what is it, like a sequel?” he said. “If they want me to go through that again they’re going 
to have to pay me a s—load of cash.” Hawking’s decision? You’ll have to listen to find out! 
 The celebrity-studded Red Nose Day, which is mounted by Comic Relief, 
airs live on BBC One in the U.K. on Friday night, 
and will air in the U.S. on May 25 on NBC. (x)
A special TV sequel to the 2003 film Love Actually also airing
as part of the British charity's Red Nose Day telethon.(x)

Eddie is also helping Comic Relief, having voiced a special audiobook 
version of J.K. Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them,

Excerpts translated to English (via eddieredmayneforlife): 
“Today, Eddie Redmayne confesses to feel the need to have a break in his career. Visibly attached to the values 
​​of the family, he describes with tenderness and humor his new role as father of little Iris , born last June of his marriage with Hannah Bagshawe. “I wanted to take a sabbatical after my last shoot and stay in London, where 
I live with my wife and daughter. Read, go to exhibitions, relearn to take time to recharge,” he explains. 
“A graduate in art history from the prestigious Trinity College in Cambridge , Redmayne tells us that this passion goes back to his childhood when he began sketching a few notes on a girl’s piano, a summer in the south of the France . He was 5 years old and has never stopped playing … even if he had to wait years before he could afford 
his own piano, with the money he earned in the film adaptation of Musical comedy Les Misérables (2012).Chopin 
is an obsession for him: “I was so moved when I discovered the plaster casting of his hand at the Museum of Romantic Life in Paris!””
