Fantastic Beasts’ Eddie Redmayne has a charmed career, so what spell would he want to cast?


Eddie Redmayne admits he is as neurotic as the next actor – the years of getting rejected for roles mean there is always a voice in his head telling him he may never work again.

And this despite a career most would kill for. There was his Academy Award-winning turn as the physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything (2014); his Oscar-nominated performance in the biopic The Danish Girl (2015); and his lead role in the Fantastic Beasts films, which are poised to become a mega franchise.
