Callum Turner Cast As Theseus Scamander

English actor Callum Turner has been cast as Theseus Scamander – Newt’s older brother.

Strangely, Turner, 27, is a few years younger than his on-screen younger brother Redmayne, 35.


Theseus is described as a war hero in the first Fantastic Beasts film – a Ministry wizard who, on his return from the war, is assigned to the task force searching for renowned dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.
