On November 01, the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald cast visited Parkside Elementary School in Alabama.

Yesterday, November 01, a few members of the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald cast attended Parkside Elementary School in Baileyton, Alabama to celebrate the Wizarding World with the students. The cast also gave interviews and among the guests were Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander), Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore), Ezra Miller (Credence Barebone) and Zoë Kravitz (Leta Lestrange).

Actor Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) and Jude Law (Albus Dumbledore) appeared on the Graham Norton Show.

Eddie Redmayne (Newt Scamander) and co-star Jude Law (Albums Dumbledore) appeared on the Graham Norton Show to chat about their Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald film. As you can see, Eddie brought along a leg injury, which he compared to that of Tom Cruise, who famously halted Mission Impossible filming after leaping from a building and breaking his ankle. He revealed he sprained his ankle after tripping up on a crash mat while filming a ‘hardcore’ stunt.

“Well, I was on set of a quite hard core ‘stunty’ thing about two people in a hot air balloon and they had this crash mat beneath the balloon in case you fell out. I walked on to the crash mat, tripped on it and fell and sprained my ankle.”

“Now I look like RoboCop – they told me I had to wear it and I am being obedient.”

Talking about his role of the Magizoologist Newt, he told host Graham: “When you get to be in JK Rowling’s world, you suddenly get a wand – you’ve pretty much waited all your life for this moment and you think you are going to be a pro at it, but you really don’t know what to do with it.

“So, I actually got a movement coach to help me work out how to use it – whether to do it over the top or minimal – we really studied it.”

Lumos Foundation USA held a special fundraising event in New York City on 22 and 23 September 2018 where J.K. Rowling talked to actress Whoopi Goldberg.

Lumos Foundation USA was delighted to welcome more than 350 guests to a special fundraising event held in New York City on 22 and 23 September 2018. The highlight of Saturday’s gala dinner was a conversation between Lumos Founder and President J.K. Rowling and Emmy, Oscar and Tony-award winning star Whoopi Goldberg. During the conversation, J.K. Rowling described the trauma faced by the millions of children around the world who are separated from their families and the importance of raising awareness of the 8 million children trapped in orphanages.

“There is a vast humanitarian crisis that affects children overwhelmingly, which most of us are totally unaware of,” J.K.Rowling said. They went on to discuss how Lumos works to reunite families and help some of the most disadvantaged children around the world, highlighting the organisation’s progress in ending the harmful institutionalisation of children. They were later joined on stage by Lumos CEO Georgette Mulheir, who praised the generosity of Americans but called on them not to donate to or volunteer at orphanages, and to redirect funds instead to support networks in the local community to help families stay together. Rounding out the night was a preview of an upcoming HBO documentary on the issue, due to premiere in late 2019, and a special musical performance by Jamie Parker, star of the Tony-Award winning play on Broadway, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, accompanied on piano by the most prolific and honoured female theatrical composer in history, Jeanine Tesori.

The gala weekend continued on the Sunday when guests were treated to a benefit performance of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two at the Lyric Theatre on Broadway, with a surprise introduction by J.K. Rowling. Delighted fans in the audience heard our Founder and President talk about the importance of family, how this is a central theme of the play, and the inspiration behind her founding Lumos – the story of a young boy, trapped in an institution in the Czech Republic, whose image she first saw in a newspaper in 2004.
