Eddie Redmayne just told us his favorite “Harry Potter” film and it’s perfect
Choosing a favorite Harry Potter film is kind of like choosing your favorite child. Like, it’s definitely possible to do, but you’d just rather not.
And you guys, spoiler alert: It’s not the film he’s in.
“My favorite film is probably the finale — Deathly Hallows: Part 2,” Redmayne told EW.
Which is obviously a smart choice, considering it’s one of the four films directed by Fantastic Beasts director David Yates.
“With the last two, they had something I kept rewatching, going back and watching Ralph Fiennes and Daniel Radcliffe do that extraordinary duel,” he said. “When you’re [casting spells on set], the effects of this huge tension of what’s coming out of your wand is put [into the shot in post-production; you’re] literally acting with nothing, and I found it so operatic and deeply moving. I found it so climatically satisfying.”
Well that’s something we’ve never thought about, but then again, we’re mere muggles and have never cast a spell on anyone.
Will Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them become our new favorite already? We’re counting down the days until it finally, finally, FINALLY opens!!
