The season for Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is upon us and Eddie Redmayne, who plays the main character in the film, visited The Ellen Show for a pretty fun interview and game of Heads Up!

DeGeneres kicked off the interview by listing Redmayne's accolades that included an Oscar win and nomination.

Redmayne said it had been one of the most frenzied couple years for him as he moved from films like The Theory of Everything to The Danish Girl and now to one of the most highly anticipated films that serves as a precursor to the Harry Potter phenomenon.

The actor said he spends most days pinching himself but he is loving it. Redmayne is a new father to a 4-month-old daughter named Iris. His daughter is keeping him up but he says it is all totally worth it.

Redmayne's wife seems to have a problem with time as she is always late. He chatted about it the last time he was on the show, however, it didn't seem to help.

Redmayne also told DeGeneres of taking his family to Brazil for the 2016 Summer Olympics and his fear of the British Olympic team blaming his daughter for their lack of performance in the games.

He feared she would keep them from getting rest on the airplane, however, she was very good, according to the actor.

Meanwhile, the actor raved about the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them and how intricate the script was.

He teased a huge surprise at the end of the film which hits theaters on November 18, 2016 and also shared his shock when he found out there will be a total of five films in the series.
