“I think they [Leta and Newt] were probably still quite close even when Newt goes to America, which is why I think it’s such a jarring thing to come home and find I’m engaged to Theseus. We’ve all known each other for a really long…

“I saw an early version of the script in which the young guys [Newt & Theseus] – the flashback when they were at Hogwarts together. He [Theseus] came like, flying past the window on a quidditch broomstick, and he was clearly like a schoolboy sporting…
