Eddie Redmayne Reveals He Feels Pressure Taking on 'Fantastic Beasts'

Eddie Redmayne steps out while doing press in New York City on Friday (November 4).

The 34-year-old Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star revealed that he feels a certain pressure taking on the legendary Harry Potter franchise.

“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,” Eddie told The Guardian. “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.”

FYI: Eddie is wearing an AllSaints denim jacket.
