Eddie Redmayne, Newt Scamander, reads the third chapter of The Philosopher’s Stoneby Pedro Martins
Actor Eddie Redmayne, known amongst Harry Potter fans for his portrayal of Newt Scamander in the Fantastic Beasts movies, is the third celebrity to join the project in which stars read chapters from The Philosopher’s Stone during the COVID-19 quarantine.
Eddie Redmayne recorded a video reading the third chapter from the book, The Letters from No One, when Harry starts receiving letters from Hogwarts but the Dursley family tries to stop him from reading them.
The videos are part of the project Harry Potter at Home, which gathers themed activities to entertain fans during the COVID-19 quarantine.
The reading project will also count with the presence of other actors from the Wizarding World, such as Claudia Kim (Nagini), and international celebrities, like the actress Dakota Fanning (from the Twilight saga) and ex-soccer player David Beckham.
