LUCIE POHL has been sworn to secrecy.
Which for a talkative New Yorker who uses her own life as material for her one-woman character comedy show is a bit of a novelty.
But when it comes to her role in the forthcoming Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, starring Eddie Redmayne, she’s having to keep schtum.
“Everything was so highly confidential,” says Lucie, who’s currently appearing at her third Edinburgh Fringe in a row.
“They didn’t give you a script, they gave you an app and you read your bit of the script on that, but it registered if you took a photo or a screenshot of it, or printed it, and then you got blocked for life.
“The extras had a tamper-proof seal put over their camera-phones and at the end of the day their phones were checked, and if the seal was broken, the phone was confiscated and completely wiped!
“I’m not allowed to say who my scenes were with, but what I can say is I did meet Eddie Redmayne, who was also filming that day — hint hint!”
Lucie Pohl is at the Gilded Balloon throughout August.
