Eddie Redmayne "can't travel" anywhere without his wand.
The 34-year-old actor was given his own magical rod to use for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' and he admits he can't put it down even though filming has wrapped.
Asked when he finally felt comfortable using a wand, he said: "It's consistently weird but also only weird to begin with because everything is so exciting, getting to jump into all those experiences. Then it becomes very natural very quickly. I took my wand everywhere. I have it in my case upstairs; I just can't travel without it."
And the father-of-one - who has four-month-old daughter Iris with his wife Hannah Bagshawe - enjoyed having a say on what the final product looked like and was amazed with how "intricate" the designs were.
Eddie Redmayne didn't know there'd be five Fantastic Beasts films
Eddie Redmayne admits it came as a shock when it was announced there will be five 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them' movies.The Oscar-winning actor plays magizoologist Newt Scamander in the upcoming first installment of J.K. Rowling's series, and he admitted the recent announcement the planned trilogy is being extended by an additional two films came as a "complete shock" to the cast.
He told USA Today: "When you enter the J. K. Rowling world, you get to go and meet people who design wands and we talked about my wand.
"They then come up with a selection of drawings and prototypes and it's so intricate. My wand is made of ash wood and then made of a shell at the bottom, a bit of mother of pearl."
Meanwhile, Eddie previously admitted he was worried about "screwing up" the movie, in which he plays magizoologist Newt Scamander.
He said: "Of course you feel pressure. Also, particularly because I loved the Potter films. There was something so warming about being able to dive back into that world every year or two. And if you've enjoyed something, you don't want to be the one who comes in and screws it up.
"But pressure's there with every film. With 'The Theory of Everything' it was knowing Stephen and Jane Hawking and the family would see the film. With 'The Danish Girl' it was all the people that I'd met in preparation for the film who came from the trans community. It's pressure here of a different type, which is called hard core fandom."
