Redmayne and his favourite fantastic beast

Eddie Redmayne, who stars as Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them , created quite a stir at a recent movie premiere when a certain little creature was seen peeping from his breast pocket.

Redmayne, who looked dashing in a grey double breasted jacket and matching suit, was all grins with a model of his character’s favourite creature, a bowtruckle named ‘Pickett’, standing out in all its green glory from his pocket.

Rowling, who is the real wizard behind the beloved series, took to her social media handle to post a picture of her with the 34-year-old actor posing for the shutterbugs.

“Last but by no means least, Pickett the bowtruckle got to come to the premiere, courtesy of a very talented fan,” she captioned the photo. A bowtruckle is a name given to a fictional creature in Rowling’s wizarding world that has the general appearance of a flat-faced little stickman made of bark and twigs. — ANI
