Fantastic Beasts has another cast member. Irish actress Jenn Murray will be joining Colin Farrell, Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Ezra Miller and Alison Sudol in the adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff as an as-of-yet unnamed key character. The new cast member can be seen this year with Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn, a film about a woman deciding between two loves on opposite sides of the Atlantic.
Fantastic Beasts follows Nate Scamander (Redmayne), who travels the world looking for magical creatures to document for what eventually becomes a Hogwarts textbook. It is rumored that Murray’s character will be involved mainly with Ezra Miller’s character, a rival of Scamander. The film is being produced by David Heyman, J.K. Rowling, Lionel Groves, and longtime Harry Potter writer Steve Kloves. The film is set to release in November of next year.
