On an interview to Entertainment Weekly, actor Eddie Redmayne, who plays the magizoologist Newt Scamander on “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them”, revealed his favorite “[Harry Potter]” book and movie.

““My favorite film is probably the finale — Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Actually, the last two were incredible. They had something I kept rewatching, going back and watching Ralph Fiennes and Daniel Radcliffe do that extraordinary duel. When you’re [casting spells on set], the effects of this huge tension of what’s coming out of your wand is put [into the shot in post-production; you’re] literally acting with nothing, and I found it so operatic and deeply moving. I found it so climatically satisfying.”

About the favorite book written by [J.K Rowling], Redmayne said:

““I suppose I’d go with the first. My little brother, when he was 6 years old, he would always read it, and it had that instant immersion into the world that made you release your imagination.”

“Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them”, directed by David Yates and with screenplay by J.K Rowling, arrives at theaters worldwide on November 18th.
