ComingSoon.net recently spoke to actor Eddie Redmayne for the release of his upcoming film, The Danish Girl, and he discussed some details for his role in J.K> Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The Harry Potter spin-off is due out in theaters on November 18, 2016.

Redmayne on meeting J.K. Rowling for his prep work: “When I was prepping, I met J.K. Rowling and what’s so amazing is that her imagination is so full and thorough–it’s so encyclopedic of her world–we had an hour together and I sort of asked her about 800 questions so that was a lot of my wonderful research.”

His thoughts on director David Yates: “He’s wonderful. Even though there’s a scale to these films that could be intimidating, he has such a kindness but an absolutely brilliant that it feels very intimate, and he’s got such a wonderful, eclectic cast. Hopefully, it will be good.”
