Now This interview on Harry Potter and Fatherhood


Excerpts from the interview by Sally Turner for NowThis Entertainment.



'Fantastic Beasts' star Eddie Redmayne says the reason he loves 'Harry Potter' 
is because it's like 'escapism with a message.'

'Fantastic Beasts' actor Eddie Redmayne, who starred in both the Harry Potter
spinoffs 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' and now 'Fantastic Beasts:
The Crimes of Grindelwald,' sits down with NowThis to talk about his
Fantastic Beasts role, J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter world, and fatherhood.



"It's basically like being a kid again. When I watched the Potter films - I was excited to go
to see them every couple of years, to be kind of given a hug by that magical J.K. Rowling
world, and they're as much fun to make, as they are to, kind of, see.
Jo writes - I mean, her heroes are outsiders. I think basically everyone in the world is an
outsider, everyone has their neurosis and their feeling of not fitting in, and so, something
in this film connects to that."



"I remember - Alfred Molina, a wonderful actor I worked with - said: 'The notion of
career or impact is something that you, sort of, only do, when you look back upon things.'
I actually do take from Newt two things. One is, 'Worrying means you suffer twice',
which was a line from the first film. I am like a massive worrier. And the second thing
I suppose to take from him is that he just - Dumbledore says it in the film. He says like
you're not interested in power. It's abut doing the right thing.


Q: Do you think Newt has had a positive impact on your life? 
 “It’s the first time I thought of that, but Yeah, I think he had. When you go on set, and
you handle magical creatures... you have to channel your inner nine year old. That’s
something that human beings should do more often...It’s very good for the soul.”


Q: Has fatherhood changed the way you look at your job and the acting 
process, the roles you pick?
 "That’s a good question. What it changed is the nomadic quality, kind-of the circus-like
quality of travelling around the World. It’s upheaval. It’s like...it’s physically more
complicated. so it makes you really interrogate the scripts and the work, as whether
you really want to take Iris out to nursery, and all these sort of things. And that’s
quite good...kind of think the level of the work through. Is it worth it?”

Matt Anker photoshoot 2008 April

We were blessed last week with amazing new photos of Eddie Redmayne thanks to the 
photoshoot for GQ Germany by Giampaolo Sgura. Eddie looks so young on the pictures, 
like he was 26, not 36 years old. If you wondered how he looked like ten years ago, 
here are some beautiful images from the photoshoot by Matt Anker from April 2008. 
Thanks to hope72 on tumblr, who posted them five years ago. 




What it's like working with J.K. Rowling and Eddie Redmayne

''But you do put a huge amount of your future years and work experience, and work ethic in someone
else's hands. But what was wonderful for me was, if you're gonna invest in a creative, there is no one
as extraordinary, imagination wise, as Jo. And so, it's been pretty thrilling.'' - Eddie Redmayne



‘For example, Bunty, who is Newt’s assistant in the film, who is so lovely and is played by an
actor named Victoria Yeates, only has one scene in this film,' he said. 'She and Newt clearly
have a relationship and it’s quite a well-established relationship. So, Victoria and I asked Jo
what their history was. The next day, three pages of original J.K. Rowling text, now kept in
my safe, was written about the depths of their friendship and where it had come from and
how Bunty had come to the book signing and had been obsessed with Newt.’

‘[Dumbledore] sees Grindelwald in the Mirror of Erised. You see extraordinary intimacy
and love even in the brief moments that it’s exposed. I think that [Jo] is just telling a story
over five films and we will see more of their relationship.’ - Eddie Redmayne

BTS of the photoshoot by Giampaolo Sgura for GQ Germany


Behind the scenes video released by GQ Germany. Eddie Redmayne photographed 
by Giampaolo Sgura for the new issue, that will be on stands tomorrow. 
Styling Tobias Frericks.










  



What a real man is, it's on a much larger spectrum today.
Currently, Eddie Redmayne can be seen as a wizard Newt Scamander in the movie 
based on the script of J.K. Rowling, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald". 
At least since his main role of the transgender woman Lili Elbe in "The Danish Girl", 
the Brit has established himself as a solid acting-size. With GQ, he looks back on this 
controversial role and talks about gender roles and authenticity - the full interview 
can be found in the current issue, which is on sale from 6 December.
Eddie Redmayne's portrayal in "The Danish Girl" was controversial because the 
role was not filled with a transgender woman. Today, he believes, that would be 
different: "The film was released in cinemas in 2015. Since then, the gender debate 
has received so much attention that today, you would probably really plan the 
movie to cast the role of Lili Elbe with a trans actress. " Redmayne has learned, 
as he affirms in the big GQ interview: "I hope films will be debating. (...) 
I talked to many filmmaking Trans women and men and learned a lot about 
how hard they are finding work in front of or behind the camera. " 

Especially in a time of rapid change, it is important for the husband and father of
two children to participate in the social dialogue: "I am convinced that you can
always achieve more together than by partitioning one another. It's about conversation
and understanding for each other. By understanding I do not mean that we understand
headlines. We have to understand the whole story. "Nevertheless, it is not a matter
of course for him to be taken into political duty as an actor:" It is forgotten (...)
how many people do not care at all, what a particular actor says, and that This
actor has few opportunities to retune one of these people. And, let's face it, I can
participate in public discussions. But I do not want it automatically. " (preview GQ)
