VIDEO: Eddie Redmayne Was Sorted into Hufflepuff, Defends His 'Harry Potter' House in a PSA!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star Eddie Redmayne is as big of a Harry Potter fanatic as the rest of us and the house that he was sorted into is Hufflepuff, one that is often ridiculed among fans of the franchise!

The 34-year-old actor is defending the house in a funny new PSA that he created for MTV.

“For far too long now, Hufflepuffs have been victimized,” Eddie says in the clip while looking like he is going to cry. “They call us boring. They call us beige. They say we’re the nice guys. But you know what? You know what I see in Hufflepuffs? I see loyalty. I see fierce friendship. We are hardworking, we are compassionate, and at the end of the day, we’re going to do the right thing, and not because of the glory. Not because of the glory, but for the greater good.”

Eddie Redmayne is starring in this month’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them…but this wasn’t the first Harry Potter film he wanted to star in!

The 34-year-old actor revealed in a recent interview with USA Today that he originally auditioned for the original Harry Potter film series about 15 years ago for the role of Tom Riddle. If you don’t know, Tom is actually Lord Voldemort and the name “Tom Riddle” is the name he was given at birth.

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the role eventually went to actor Christian Coulson. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the role was played by Frank Dillane.

Eddie Redmayne actually brought his Fantastic Beasts character’s wand to the United States!

The 34-year-old actor recently revealed that he carried Newt’s wand through the airport.

Eddie was spotted touching back down at Heathrow Airport after returning from the U.S. on Sunday (November 13) in London, England.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18.

Eddie Redmayne Gushes About Favorite Part of Fatherhood

Eddie Redmayne suits up for the Canadian premiere of his upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them held at Yonge-Dundas Square on Tuesday (November 8) in Toronto, Canada.

The 34-year-old actor was joined by his co-stars Dan Fogler, Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, director David Yates, and producer David Heyman.

The next day, he and the cast flew to New York City for the Apple Store Soho presentation of Meet the Cast: Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

Eddie recently opened up about his favorite part about being a dad to his four-month-old daughter Iris.

“It’s in the morning,” Eddie told People. “If Iris has managed to sleep through the night and then you hear a gentle squeak and you go in [her room] and turn on the light … and the massive grin that’s like, ‘It’s a whole new day.’ That’s probably the greatest thing.”

“Hilariously, she’s learned to shout,” he went on. “She doesn’t cry much, but she’s learned to shout. It’s hilarious, she’ll just be sitting there going, ‘Behhhhh!’ Like, what is that noise? From this tiny little thing. She doesn’t sound like a sheep, but it definitely doesn’t sound like a noise that could come from someone so small.”

“The amazing this is that everything that everyone has ever told you — all of the clichés — you become the person starting to spout out the clichés, as if they are the newest thought,” Eddie added.

VIDEO: Eddie Redmayne Teaches Jimmy Fallon 'Fantastic Beasts' Mating Dance

Eddie Redmayne busts a move while stopping by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in an episode that aired on Wednesday (November 9).

The 34-year-old actor was there to discuss his upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (out November 18)!

In the film, his character Newt Scamander has to seduce a huge creature using a “mating dance.”

Eddie revealed that when he read “Newt performs mating dance” in the script, he didn’t know what to think.

“Two words have never filled me with so much sweat,” he said during his appearance.

“But I [googled it], of course,” Eddie added. “I went and looked [up] ‘weird random bird mating calls.’ And I made a few videos that I would send to the director, they were the most humiliating things you’ve ever seen in your life.”

Finally, he said director David Yates responded with, “Not sure it’s quite seductive enough…”

Check out Eddie teaching Jimmy the dance below!
