NEWT SCA­MAN­DER

(Ed­diE REd­maynE)

SFX - - Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald -

RED­MAYNE One of the things I love about Newt is that he’s com­pletely his own per­son. He’s learned to be con­tent with that – or he thinks he’s con­tent with it. In the last movie, he con­nected with the [prin­ci­pal] trio, and par­tic­u­larly with Tina, who saw el­e­ments in him which other peo­ple had never seen. Prob­a­bly one of the only other peo­ple in his life who had seen that was Dum­ble­dore. As his teacher, Dum­ble­dore, I think, had al­ways ad­mired his com­plete com­mit­ment to who he was.

LAW He has a re­ally beau­ti­ful mo­ral com­pass. We all have those friends that you just know make the right mo­ral de­ci­sion, and you go to them be­cause they’re good.

RED­MAYNE And Dum­ble­dore likes to ma­nip­u­late that [laughs]. One of the lovely things about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween Dum­ble­dore and Newt is that it is mas­ter/ap­pren­tice, but the ap­pren­tice is grow­ing up and chal­leng­ing the mas­ter. He’s aware that he’s be­ing ma­nip­u­lated but is go­ing along with it any­way.
