Carmen Ejogo has teased that the next installments of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them get “very complex”.
The 43-year-old actress – who plays the President of the Magical Congress of the United States of America, Seraphina Picquery, in the hotly anticipated movie – has given fans of the franchise a glimpse of what to expect from the five-part movie series.
Speaking at the European premiere of the movie at London’s Leicester Square, she said: “We have a lot of stories to tell coming up ahead. It’s going to get very complex and exciting.”
Meanwhile, Eddie Redmayne recently admitted he has been “so bad at keeping secrets”.
The 34-year-old actor – who plays protagonist Newt Scamander in the hotly anticipated movie – is thrilled that the film gets it release date later this week as him and his co-stars aren’t so good at keeping the closely guarded details to themselves.
He said: “Everything about this film was so shrouded in secrecy. And as a cast, we are so bad at keeping secrets that we’re so thrilled that it is finally going out into the world and we can stop being in charge of the secret keeping.”
And Eddie – who has five-month-old daughter Iris with his wife Hannah Bagshawe – is hopeful that the fans will warm to the Fantastic Beasts franchise as much as they did to the Harry Potter series.
He added: “All of us involved in this film were ‘Harry Potter’ fans and if you’re a fan of something, you don’t want to be the one to come in and screw it up. When I read the script, it was so filled with wonder and excitement, all the warmth of the Potter films but 70 years before and a new energy to it so I’m hoping you guys will embrace it as much as we enjoyed making it.”
