Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them certainly was bang on! It combined acting legends and new talent into an unfathomable cast. However, where were they before they were waving wands and taming monsters? Let’s take a look..
1. Gemma Chan
At that point: Gemma Chan, a London citizen was born in 1982. She initially set out to be a lawyer after secondary school, yet when she moved on from Oxford; she chose to try out acting. After a progression of little roles (she’s acknowledged just as “Chinese young lady” in 2009’s low-budget psychological thriller Exam), Chan discovered more steady work through TV shows like Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Bedlam.
Presently: The defining moment for Chan came when she was given a role as the robot “synth” Anita in Humans. There’s no telling where she’ll go after Fantastic Beasts. However she’s got the looks and as she’s proved in Humans, she’s a pretty good actor as well.
2. Eddie Redmayne – Newt Scamander
At that point: Born in London to a family of businessmen, Eddie Redmayne debuted on stage in 2002, when he was 20 years of age. He went to Eton and was a school mate of Prince William. He modelled sweaters for a brief timeframe as a teenager.
Presently: Redmayne is one of Hollywood’s most current A-rundown individuals because he can act. He pretty much made the entire world cry with his Oscar-winning depiction of Stephen Hawking in 2014’s The Theory of Everything. The next year saw him being nominated again for his work in The Danish Girl.
