Warner Bros Pictures has announced that the highly anticipated film "Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore" is set to premiere on the streaming giant HBO Max on May 30.


The exciting film is the third installment of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter spin-off series, which reveals the untold story of Albus Dumbledore, played by Oscar-nominated actor Jude Law.

In addition to Law, Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne will also star in the amazing film, taking on the critical character Newt Scamander, a magizoologist or a wizard who studies magical creatures.

In 2015, Redmayne won an Oscar Award for best actor in the film "The Theory of Everything." In 2016, the English actor and his wife, Hannah Bagshawe, welcomed their lovely daughter, Iris Mary.

The couple's family expanded after Bagshawe gave birth to an adorable boy, Luke Richard, on March 10, 2018. The little boy is now four, while Iris is five.


Four years ago, Redmayne reminisced about how he and his wife took turns taking care of their children when they were still infants. The 40-year-old actor said of their experience:

"It's that amazing thing when it's 3 o'clock in the morning and you go in and you're gently furious, and you get a little smile and your heart breaks a bit, and it's totally worth it."

Although they were sleep-deprived, "The Danish Girl" actor and his 39-year-old wife enjoyed their time as new parents. The couple has been together for seven years.

A proud father, Redmayne gave a rare glimpse into his fatherhood journey with his kids and discussed the challenges of being a dad to two small children.

The "Jupiter Ascending" actor also added in jest that life is about trying to keep his adorable children alive. The loving father described Iris and Luke as "wonderful" kids.

According to Redmayne, Iris has become a fantastic sister to Luke after the charming little girl discovered how to keep her baby brother entertained.

Interestingly, Basgshawe is friends with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Redmayne remarked that no one makes Luke laugh as much as Iris does. "Like, these humans are interacting, so that's been pretty special," he marveled.

Redmayne met Bagshawe at a charity fashion show at Eton College, where he was a student. They tied the knot in December 2014 at Babington House in Somerset, England.

Bagshawe is notoriously late for everything, according to Redmayne. On their wedding day, he stated that his wife had arrived late. Luckily, his wife's grandfather quickly assisted her at their special event.

Interestingly, Basgshawe is friends with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. She and Redmayne considered the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as part of their "wider circle" of friends.


Bagshawe may have kept a low profile, but she's a star in her own right. She has an eye for style and fashion and has become Redmayne's trusted stylist.

Contrary to reports that Bagshawe is her husband's publicist, the mom of two had experience working in financial public relations and as an antique dealer.
