Redmayne declares his pride in Hufflepuff despite being called boring and "beige".
Hufflepuff hate has always been rampant in Harry Potter circles - after all, Gryffindors are fearless, Ravenclaws are intelligent, Slytherins are cunning, and Hufflepuffs live near the kitchen (and are characterized as being loyal).
What better way to celebrate the 15th anniversary of such a beloved film than with a special PSA from Mr. Scamander himself, Eddie Redmayne.
"For far too long, Hufflepuffs have been victimized", he says. To discover what fantastic animal they would like to have and which would scare them, we let you discover our interview above!
He continued, "But I see loyalty". So, we are hardworking - we are compassionate. Robert Pattinson was sorted into the house when he played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Trust me, it is worth your time, and may even beat out that viral "IIIIII'm A Hufflepuff!" video that came out a few years ago in terms of hilarity. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has also publicly admitted he was a Hufflepuff, and JK Rowling has famously stated her favorite house was founded by Helga Hufflepuff to boot. While doing promotion on MTV for his new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them he had to get something important off his chest. Sure they did. But did they come together in the end, and piece everything together to defeat Voldemort at the Battle of Hogwarts?
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in theaters on November 16.
