Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander): ‘Cos, you know, Newt—he’s got a very English—he’s a very slight, awkward man. There was a moment in the film when he goes down his case to his world, where all of his things are, and he rips off his shirt, and you saw all these scars and JK Rowling wrote that he was actually quite built. So they had me go to the gym for months and months on end, and we got to the scene, and I think it’s probably because I spent most of the scene going, “Ooh I’m gonna get my wand! I’m gonna get that—I think the acting was so bad that it got cut.”
Katherine Waterston (Porpentina Goldstein): I think it was probably just so overwhelming and you don’t want to like, make Chris Hemsworth feel bad about himself.
Eddie: Yeah I didn’t want to threaten Chris Hemsworth. [x]
