Eddie Redmayne Confesses He Was Desperate To Play A Weasley In ‘Harry Potter’ Films | Film News

Despite playing the leading role in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, it turns out Eddie Redmayne would have preferred a much smaller role in the Harry Potter film franchise as a Weasley! Speaking in an interview with IGN, Redmayne confirmed that he was gutted when he missed a call to play a Weasley, considering he’s ginger too: “For years I was always like, in the Harry Potter films, there was a whole ginger family, and I never got an audition. And I was like, come on, it’s outrageous! Every actor in England was in the Harry Potter films, but I never got the call.”

 

Whilst he won’t get to play a Weasley, Redmayne will certainly earn the limelight as Newt Scamander in the upcoming movie based on author J.K Rowling’s book. Set in 1926, seventy years before Harry’s story begins, the movie follows protagonist Newt throughout his adventures in New York City, where he’s aspiring to study the abundance of magical creatures within the wizarding world. His research is eventually published into a book, which becomes a renowned piece at Hogwarts. Fantastic Beasts will be released on November 18, 2016, in the mean time you can catch the trailer below:
