Entertainment Weekly has released character descriptions for the main characters of the upcoming Fantastic Beasts movie.
To read it, simply highlight the space in-between the two Snitches.
Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne):
An eccentric globe-hopping English Magizoologist wizard who’s far more comfortable around beasts and creatures than he is around other people. Comes to New York on a quest with his case full of magical habitats containing rare and endangered species.
Porpentina “Tina” Goldstein (Katherine Waterston):
An ambitious worker at the Magical Congress of the United States of America (aka MACUSA, the U.S. version of the Ministry of Magic) who meets Newt. Tina is relegated to an office well below her abilities after she stood up for the wrong person. She longs to fight for what’s right.
Queenie Goldstein (Alison Sudol):
Tina’s younger sister and roommate, a big-hearted free-spirit Legilimens who can read minds.
Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler):
An optimistic No-Maj (aka Muggle) factory worker/aspiring baker who gets introduced to the wizarding world when he meets Newt. Fun fact: He’s the Harry Potter franchise’s first Muggle main character.
Graves (Colin Farrell):
A powerful Auror and the right-hand man of the American wizarding world’s president.
Mary Lou (Samantha Morton):
The narrow-minded leader of the fanatical Second Salemers, a group looking to expose and destroy wizards and witches.
Credence (Ezra Miller):
Perhaps the cast’s most mysterious character. He’s Mary Lou’s troubled adopted son.
