During an interview with Collider to promote her upcoming HBO series Big Little Lies which premieres on February 19, Zoe Kravitz was asked about her brief, photographic appearance as “Leta Lestrange.” After all, “Lestrange” is a familiar name to Harry Potter fans who remember a certain psychotic witch! In fact, Ms. Kravitz is quite pleased that Leta will have more to do in the sequel.
Collider: You’re also a part of the Fantastic Beasts films, and we hear your role is going to be even bigger in the sequel.
KRAVITZ: Yeah, it’s very exciting! Yeah, it wasn’t much, in the first one.
Have you started shooting that yet?
KRAVITZ: No, that starts in June or July, I think. It’s sometime in the summer. I’m very excited. The one day I was on set for that, and also for my audition process, being able to work with Eddie [Redmayne] and David [Yates] was incredible. The script was very under wraps, so even signing onto it, I hadn’t read the script. I just went off of who was involved, and J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter films, so I knew it was going to be incredible, especially with how involved J.K. is. And then, I got to see the film, after I was already signed on, and it exceeded my expectations. That was a really interesting experience, to sit back and watch a movie that you loved, and then get to walk out and say, “I get to be in that!” It’s a very cool thing.
Although Ms. Kravitz doesn’t know how far her character will go and develop in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts… sequels, she was amused by her reading with Eddie Redmayne.
Have you gotten a peak at the script for the next film yet?
KRAVITZ: I know nothing! I have an idea, based off of when I auditioned, but I know nothing. Even when I went to go do my chemistry read with Eddie, he was trying to help me piece together what was happening in the scene that we were reading. He doesn’t get to see anything either, so he was like, “I think based off of this line and this line, and what we shot here and here, this is what’s going on.” We had to guess. It was funny to watch him, trying to piece it all together.
Well, it certainly will be fun to see how it comes all together for us. The second film will be released in theaters on November 16, 2018.
