Alison Sudol plays Queenie Goldstein in Fantastic Beasts. Direct from the set, she tells the Pottermore Correspondent about getting the part and feeling like an older sister to Harry Potter fans the world over.
Fantastic Beasts cast - Alison Sudol - Queenie. Seriously this is what I adore about Queenie. She completely blindsided me. I really didn't expect her to be such a strong character. She was just so unapologetically herself. And people don't tend to associate those traits with strength, but Queenie showed a different side of that that was just refreshing.
"...Crushed under heavy chest, Trying to catch your breath, But it always beats you by a step, all right now. Making the best of it, Playing the hand you get, You're not alone in this. There's hope for the hopeless, There's hope for the hopeless, There's hope." ~ lyrics by Alison Sudol, from A Fine Frenzy ~
