Entertainment Weekly recently spoke to Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) where she revealed a new magical power being introduced to the Harry Potter universe.
“She’s basically a complete and utter magical empath,” Sudol tells EW. “She’s able to read people — so it’s not just reading somebody’s thoughts. She’s can read into someone’s story, she can see people’s goals. And so even though she’s able to do magic with her wand, a lot of her magic is actually internal, which makes her a different type of wizard or witch. And she’s incredibly fun, playful, joyful, and free-spirited, kind and wise, and also has a sort of stillness about her because she’s always tuning into people, so she’s quite an interesting character to play — very vivacious and lively, yet very centered and aware.”
