Beyond Newt Scamander and Percival Graves, a slightly more humble witch steals the show in J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Still being a prominent member of the main cast means that she doesn’t go unnoticed, but amongst the rest of the action, Queenie Goldstein’s excellence as a character can get overlooked.
On the surface, Queenie (Alison Sudol) is an angelic woman, warm and welcoming, with a particular talent for reading minds. When we get to look past that, though, there’s far more intrigue to her character. With a bucketload of emotional intuitiveness enhanced by both her brilliant legilimency and sorrowful past, there’s no doubt that these aspects of Queenie will become even more of a crucial addition to the Harry Potter universe in future sequels.
