Liverpool Echo: 
Zak Nimmo said: “It was quite embarrassing, actually. “I didn’t know who he was and I didn’t think twice when this lad came over to me when I was standing outside one day. “I asked him if he was in the film and he said ‘yeah, you could say that’. “After he left my mate came over to me and broke the news to me.”

"We’ve done the first [Fantastic Beasts movie], [J.K. Rowling]’s written the second one, she’s got ideas for the
third one. No one quite has ownership of them quite yet, in terms of having a relationship with the material,
other than the relationship they’ll have with the movie when it comes out.
When we adapted the [Harry Potter] books, you would always had to leave out things that you hated leaving out because they didn’t quite work within the structure of the storytelling for the movie, or the movie would just be far
too long. With this, it’s just pure Jo, from the first page to the last page." (x)

Alison's story from Instagram:
"Playing Queenie has been a complete and utter dream. I can't wait for you to see the film and meet her. She beckoned me to find joy and adventure in places I least expected to, and allowing her enormous heart to live within mine was a gift which at times I needed more than I can say. And the entire Fantastic Beasts family have been so beautiful, so kind, so gentle, and as magic as the world(s) JK Rowling has created. Today I am filled with gratitude for this film, and for the country that I came to feel truly at home in. England," - Read the full story here

Pottermore: When Dan Fogler first met his Fantastic Beasts co-star Alison Sudol
‘respect at first sight’
‘Alison is an angel. She’s an angel,’ Dan says, emphatically. ‘The moment I saw her, I knew her energy was just perfect. When she gets in the make-up and she’s Queenie and she’s got the lights on her, she’s got skin that glows, you know? When I saw her for the first time, I was like, holy.... It’s Alison Monroe over here – Marilyn’s cousin.’ - Read more (via)

Director David Yates confirmed that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be featured at this year's
San Diego Comic-Con, where he will show 'a few clips' from the movie. This will presumably take place during
the Warner Bros.' SDCC Hall H panel on Saturday, July 23rd from 11:30am-1:30pm, as the film itself does not
have its own session.
Yates has also pretty much confirmed that he will return to direct the second Fantastic Beasts film...
"Fantastic Beasts — it’s very exciting and I’m editing it at the moment and it’s coming together really well.
We’re going to take a few clips to Comic-Con very shortly and we’re working on the second one as well.
We’re setting up Beasts 2 and Jo’s [J.K. Rowling] already delivered a script for that which is terrific and
so it’s all going very well. That’s all I can say really, it’s fun."
Cast for Fantastic Beasts is also expected to be at Comic-Con, including Redmayne. Dan Fogler,
who plays No-Maj Jacob Kowalski, already confirmed through social media that he will be at SDCC this year

Big Fantastic Beasts presence at San Diego Comic Con
Deadline: “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them Director David Yates and cast Eddie Redmayne,
Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller and Colin Farrell.”
