‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ stars share their favorite Harry Potter characters

The magic heads to the Big Apple when Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them premieres in November.

Entertainment Weekly Radio’s Jessica Shaw and Dalton Ross sat down with the cast at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday, and the actors shared their favorite characters from world of Harry Potter (besides themselves, of course).

Hagrid, Lucius Malfoy and Sirius Black all earned nods from the actors, and Colin Farrell chose Mad Eye Moody, “probably because of the man crush I have on the actor,” he said. “And I’ve a great respect for how he hides his pain in alcohol.”

As for leading man Eddie Redmayne, who plays magizoologist Newt Scamander?

“I was a Ron fan. I just thought Rupert was kind of wonderful from the word go. Even when he was really young, he had the most expressive, kind of elastic face,” he said, adding with a laugh, “It may have something to do with the hair color.”
