Eddie Redmayne Bombards J.K. Rowling with Questions About Newt!

We have been impatiently waiting for more news on J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them since filming began. In a new interview for Variety, Eddie Redmayne reveals a little (and we mean, a little!) more about his acceptance of the role and the information he’s attempted to extract from Jo!

It seems the entire cast has taken a vow of silence when it comes to plot secrets from the much-anticipated film, which takes fans of the Harry Potter films back to the universe they love so much. Eddie is no exception to the rule, telling Variety,

I’m on censorship mode about what I’m allowed to say.

The script is kept under such tight wraps that the Oscar-winning actor didn’t even see it until just before he accepted the role and revealed that he just recently spoke to Jo for the first time.

She was having to run off, and I bombarded her with questions on the character.

While we wish he would elaborate further, Redmayne remains tight-lipped, leaving the plot and characters of Fantastic Beasts to run wildly through our imaginations until the film debuts in November 2016.
