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.”

Pictured inside: Eddie and the rest of the cast attending a premiere for the film on Tuesday (November 15) in London, England. In attendance were Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Dan Fogler, Carmen Ejogo, writer JK Rowling, and Eddie‘s wife Hannah Redmayne.
