Eddie Redmayne, adorable human, UK treasure, and star of Fantastic Beasts, stopped by The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon to promote the upcoming sequel The Crimes of Grindelwald. Aside from having great chat, he took it as an opportunity to show off his actual magic skills, as if we needed further proof he wasn’t made for the role of Newt Scamander.
Fallon asked Eddie if he was “into magic as a kid”, which he replied,”I was embarrassing into magic as a kid”, admitting that he’d also tried ventriloquism until his much younger brother told him that he could see his mouth moving. But it seems he’s developed his magical skills since then, and treated us all to an actual trick.
Watch the full video to see Redmayne the magician at work, it’s surprisingly impressive, and of course, Harry Potter-themed.
