"I have two little children- Iris is now 2 and a half and Luke is 8 months. So honestly, life is about trying to keep the children alive, "I say PEOPLE with a laugh. "But they're wonderful."

Redmayne also says daughter Iris is enjoying her big sister role.

"She's fantastic. There are occasional moments when Hannah and I are both out of the room and we get a glimpse of Iris entertaining Luke, "he says. "No one makes him laugh as much as she does. You can not quite believe it. Like, these humans are interacting [by themselves], so that's been pretty special. "

"There was a moment last year when my family – my brother's obsessed with getting dressed up at Christmas, or New Year actually, and I have decided that Fantastic Beasts was going to be the dress code.

She's running around, causing chaos, and so, I felt like I got really method on the baby Nifflers. "
