Eddie Redmayne is a Hufflepuff and he is proud, damn it.

The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star made a passionate video for MTV, pleading his case for his oft-looked-down-upon Hogwarts House. They’re not plain old nice guys; they’re loyal. They’re not boring; they’re hard-working — so enough with name calling. Eddie Redmayne believes in you, Hufflepuffs.

It’s almost enough to make us want to switch Hogwarts Houses. Almost.
