Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne recently appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his latest release The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Talking about the prior shoot delay, Eddie shared with Fallon, “We had done a day of shooting before COVID-19 really hit the UK, proper.

But we’re so lucky to be back in work and it’s interesting.” Talking about his experience of filming Fantastic Beasts 3 under COVID-19 safety precautions, The Theory of Everything star revealed, “Film crews are amazing people and they’re very adaptable people. So, there’s a lot of testing, we’re in bubbles and we’re all masked, but it’s been kind of… To begin with, I thought ‘How is this going to be?’ and it’s ended up being actually kind of great. So, it’s nice to be back at work and I feel very lucky.”
