PS: There are so many new things happening with the Harry Potter franchise.
RG: It's really kicking off, isn't it? With the play [Harry Potter and the Cursed Child]. It's amazing and quite surreal . . . to not be a part of it feels weird. I'm definitely gonna see the play. It’ll be interesting: it's a great story in its depth, and I know it will translate well on stage.
PS: How do you feel about Eddie Redmayne joining the wizarding world [in Fantastic Beasts and How to Find Them]?
RG: I'm excited to see it!
PS: If there was some initiation ritual for the franchise, what would it be?
RG: A few hours on a broomstick, maybe, though I'm not sure if there's any Quidditch [in the film].
PS: Maybe some sort of Butterbeer drinking challenge?
RG: Yeah, or eating slugs.
PS: How does it feel to have this whole new generation of kids discovering the series for the first time?
RG: It’s a trip. It makes me feel quite old! It's surreal, but amazing. I feel proud to be a part of it, because the books and films are so important to people. It's great that it lives on. and people are still excited, and it’s still so relevant.
