ES: Eddie Redmayne used to rehearse Fantastic Beasts role on the tube: ‘I realised I was being stared at’
the British star told Time Out: “Sometimes we’d have almost “War Horse”-style puppets for the rehearsal. But it varied, and sometimes it just involved having little Pickett the Bowtruckle, who is a stick insect, and he would be on my hand.
“I’d be on the tube in London, imagining talking to this thing, and suddenly realise I’m being stared at.” Redmayne, who has been spotted on public transport by fans a number of times, said that he finds it a much more efficient way to get around town.
“I take the tube! What’s the other option in London?' he said. “This morning they sent a car and it took an hour to go half a mile to get here. On the tube, it would have taken ten minutes.”
