Eddie Redmayne stars in an emotional appeal to all of those who have sneered at Hufflepuff all these years to yield to the truth: they are the best House.
Hufflepuff. The name alone can sometimes bring up stiffled laughter. The “unserious house” they call us. The stoners of the Wizarding world. And why? Just because we have cookies? That’s no way to treat loyal, dedicated, hardi-working Puffs of the world.
Eddie Redmayne knows. The star of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them doesn’t just star as Newt Scamander of House Hufflepuff. He himself has also been sorted into the Yellow and Black, and wears his badger pride proudly. And now he’s put out a PSA to remind all of those who have been rushing to be sorted into Gryffindor all these years to stop and consider their laughing at their softer gentler friends.
Check it out below.
“For far too long now, Hufflepuffs have been victimized. They call us boring. They call us beige. They say we’re the nice guys. But you know what? You know what I see in Hufflepuffs? I see loyalty. I see fierce friendship. We are hardworking, we are compassionate, and at the end of the day, we’re going to do the right thing, and not because of the glory. Not because of the glory, but for the greater good.”
That’s right! And just because we don’t have Harry Potter or Hermione Granger doesn’t make us sidekicks. Cedric Diggory is in our House! Mr. The Rock, the man who was just named the Sexiest Man Alive for 2016 in the no-maj and muggle world is also an out and proud Hufflepuff!
