Watch Fantastic Beasts actor Eddie Redmayne discover his Patronus

Find out what happened when Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them actor Eddie Redmayne immersed himself in Pottermore’s Patronus experience.

With Eddie Redmayne about to light up our screens as Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts, we thought it only fitting to plunge him even deeper into the wizarding world, and help him discover his true Patronus right here on Pottermore.

Eddie knows a fair bit about magical creatures by now, seeing as his character Newt is a Magizoologist. But how would the actor himself fare in Pottermore’s Patronus experience, written by J.K. Rowling herself?

As the total pro that he is, Eddie thought long and hard about his answers. But do you know what his Patronus was? Here are a few clues to get you going.

Clue 1: Eddie went through the experience twice and got the same Patronus.
Clue 2: Eddie called his Patronus ‘ingenious.’
Clue 3: OK, we’re hounding you now.

Have a look at Eddie’s experience here:

The Patronus Charm was first introduced to readers in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as the defensive spell which casts a silver, animal guardian to protect the witch or wizard casting it, most notably from Dementors.

It’s certainly not too late to discover your own Patronus if you haven’t already.

Who knows, you might even get Eddie’s.

So that’s Eddie’s Patronus taken care of, and a rather fitting choice too. But what about the other stars of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? Keep checking Pottermore for more Patronus revelations soon…
