It’s not very long now before Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald hits films, and one thing Potterheads are anticipating finding out about is the association between Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and Leta Estrange (Zoe Kravitz).
We know from the first part of Fantastic Beasts that, amid his chance in Hogwarts, Newt turned out to be close to Leta, with theories proposing that she might be the purpose behind his removal from the wizarding school.
Be that as it may, talking to Entertainment Weekly’s Comic-Con issue, Kravitz has now uncovered some more data in regards to the characters’ connection.
“[Newt and Leta are] friends from childhood when they went to Hogwarts,” she said. “They have quite a special bond and she was always looked at as an outcast, just as Newt was. Now he’s come back into town and learns she’s become engaged to his brother, Theseus, so that’s an awkward situation.”
Inquired as to whether both of them were ever romantically involved, Kravitz reacted: “I don’t think it ever went to that place. But Newt has so few friends and connections in his childhood, maybe in his mind it might have gone there? I don’t think it was ever acted upon. But it still feels like a betrayal.”
Recently, Eddie Redmayne implied that Newt and Leta’s relationship is to return a major way, disclosing to Entertainment Weekly: “Leta, it’s one of those connections where there was certainly great love there. In any case, would it say it was ever an all out relationship? I don’t have a clue.”
