Eddie Redmayne Had Trouble Explaining His 'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' Wand to Airport Customs

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.

“I brought it because I felt like it would be reassuring to have Newt’s wand,” Eddie told AOL Build. “But then we were coming through customs and I suddenly realize that a wand looks like a really sharp, scary object and then to try and explain it to a customs person, I was like, ‘Have you seen the … No?’ That was a bit disastrous.”

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.

FYI: Eddie is pushing a Rimowa suitcase.

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!

Eddie Redmayne Dishes on His Failed 'Star Wars' Audition

Eddie Redmayne may be an Oscar-winning actor, but his amazing acting skills didn’t help him land a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

The 34-year-old actor recently opened up about how he auditioned to play the role of Kylo Ren, but it didn’t go well at all.

“So, I was going for, I think, for Adam Driver. They gave me like a Star Trek scene – or like something from Pride and Prejudice. It was one of those films. With films that top secret, they don’t give you the actual lines. So they give you a scene from Pride and Prejudice, but then they tell you you’re auditioning for the baddie. If you’re me, you then put some ridiculous voice on,” Eddie told Uproxx.

“That was really a hilarious moment. Because it was Nina Gold, who I have to thank a lot because she’s cast me in several films,” Eddie added. “And she was just sitting there and I was trying again and again with different versions of my kind of ‘koohh paaaah’ [Darth Vader breathing sound] voice. And after like ten shots she’s like, ‘You got anything else?’ I was like, ‘No.’”

Nina was the casting director on Eddie‘s movies The Theory of Everything and The Danish Girl, so she definitely knows what she is doing!

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.”
