British actor Eddie Redmayne has become one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood, after giving us a string of hugely impressive performance, which led to him winning the Best Actor Oscar in the movie The Theory of Everything. Next up for Eddie is the lead role in the new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and the actor has admitted that the pressure was really on for this movie role.
Redmayne was speaking to The Guardian, when he revealed, "Do you feel pressure? Of course you feel pressure. Also, particularly because I loved the Potter films. There was something so warming about being able to dive back into that world every year or two. And if you’ve enjoyed something, you don’t want to be the one who comes in and screws it up."
He added, "But pressure’s there with every film. With The Theory of Everything it was knowing Stephen and Jane and the family would see the film. With The Danish Girl it was all the people that I’d met in preparation for the film who came from the trans community. It’s pressure here of a different type, which is called hardcore fandom."
As well as starring Eddie Redmayne, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them also stars Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp, Ezra Miller, and Zoe Kravitz, among many more top stars. The movie has been directed by David Yates and is set to hit the big screen on November 18 in both the US and the UK.
