Eddie's first scene in The Crimes of Grindelwald

Newt's first appearance in the movie composed similarly to the first one.
He was on a boat then, now on a bench in the Ministry of Magic waiting.

It's the audience's first time seeing Leta Lestrange, and director David Yates
had Eddie and Zoรซ Kravitz look into camera to give the impression that they're
looking at each other. "We’re meant to be showing this whole history of a
relationship, staring straight down the barrel of a lens," Eddie told BuzzFeed.
"I found it really hard. We had to do about 900 takes."

“-Laughing– When we see Newt for the first time, he is surrounded by bureaucracy,
the least comfortable place for him, and he does not feel right in his environment.
Colleen, the costume designer, thought to give him a tie or bow tie and a new outfit.
 But whist acting with this new outfit, it seemed like he was a totally different person
and we said, “Oh no no no, back to the comfort zone”. We tried to see if it was possible,
to change his silhouette, with different colours. So, we changed the costume, but it’s
a more modified version.” Eddie Redmayne quote via scamander-at-heart.tumblr

Walking down fake stairs in a deleted scene of The Crimes of Grindelwald

From a deleted scene on the Blu-Ray of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

“I was actually quite excited to do it. I’d waited all my actor life to use my walking
downstairs gag.” - Eddie in a roundtable interviews 16. Nov. 2018 LA (via Leaky)

“There was one scene, in which we had to walk down to the Seine, the river
Seine, and they just decided not to build stairs. And so for all of that money
spent, we basically then - I was just walking around as Newt, and then I had to
sort of do one of those... And basically I’ve been waiting all my life to do that,
like drama school, all of those things, but it transpired, I was really bad at it,
because that moment just before I was about to walk down, I’d be like...So,
Yeah, that was a disaster. I think they cut that bit.” - Ellen Show Nov. 2018

The movie is vailable on Amazon in Blu-ray, DVD, 4K
and Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Combo Pack format.

Special screening and Q&A of Les Mis on December 15, 2012 in Beverly Hills

I was already a big fan of Eddie when this happened, but didn't started my blog yet. At the time 
of the Les Mis promo tour and Awards season I spent a lot of time watching videos, browsing 
the blogs and fan sites for photos and news, and became more and more enchanted by him.

Happy First Birthday Luke! ๐ŸŽ‚

Happy First Birthday to Luke Richard Bagshawe Redmayne! 
A year has passed quickly. Best wishes! ๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿ˜˜❤️๐Ÿ€

And all the best for his parents Eddie Redmayne and Hannah Bagshawe too!

"...people keep saying, 'What spell would you dream of doing?'
I'm like literally just a two-hour sort of sleep spell,
people suggest gin but I haven't gotten there yet!" (Ellen)

Review-Journal: What is a typical Sunday like when you’re home?
 Eddie Redmayne: "I’m married and have a 2-year-old daughter named
Iris and a 7-month-old son named Luke. Sundays are crazy wonderful
at home with the kids. People ask me what I would do if I really had a
magic wand. Right now, I’d cast a spell that would make Luke sleep or
make for easy nappy (diaper) changes. I love spending Sundays in our
home catching up on family time and doing those nappy changes."
 You’re an Oscar winner. Doesn’t that get you out of nappy duty?
 "No, never! I don’t want out of it either. What’s the best part of fatherhood?
It’s not what I teach them. It’s what they teach me. Already, my kids have
taught me to be patient. I’m the least patient person. Other than that,
children just open your heart so wide. It’s beautiful."
