Castium Revelio: “Good Omens” Means a Good Time!
This week, the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts worlds collided as cast members from both franchises walked the red carpet to celebrate the Into Film Awards, recognizing young filmmakers across the UK for their creativity. The film education charity is supported by the British Film Institute, and awards were presented by the likes of Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Rhys Ifans (Xenophilius Lovegood), and Bill Nighy (Rufus Scrimgeour). Eddie is an ambassador for Into Film and had this to say about the charity:
I’ve been an ambassador for Into Film for a few years now, and I’ve always loved what Into Film does. Getting to come here to the Awards…the enthusiasm, the hard work, the tenacity has been very inspiring. I feel like inspiring is a word that gets thrown around a lot, but some of the films I’ve seen here, and some of the people – both the students and the teachers … it’s sent me off with a skip in my step. It’s been brilliant.
As for the rest of this absolutely jam-packed edition of our column, featuring Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory), David Tennant (Barty Crouch, Jr.), Dame Julie Walters (Molly Weasley), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore, Fantastic Beasts), Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy, Cursed Child), Miranda Richardson (Rita Skeeter), and Callum Turner (Theseus Scamander) just to name a few, you’ll need to say the magic words with us – Castium Revelio!
