Eddie Redmayne Reveals His Favorite 'Harry Potter' Book & Film!

Eddie Redmayne gets ready to attend the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics on Friday (August 5) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 34-year-old English actor was joined by his wife Hannah Bagshawe and their one-month-old daughter Iris (not pictured).

In preparation for his upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Eddie recently opened up about his favorite Harry Potter movie and book.

“My favorite film is probably the finale — Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” Eddie told Entertainment Weekly. “With the last two, 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,” he added. “And I found it so operatic and deeply moving. I found it so climatically satisfying.”

As for his favorite J.K. Rowling novel, Eddie has a soft spot for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”

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