Who's your favorite Harry Potter character?
I love evil characters in movies. So Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix — every scene that she's in, I'm like, "Oh my god, it's Bellatrix!" and I freak out. I love her.
Has Harry Potter inspired your music?
I'm a very big strings guy. And the upcoming record's out August 2nd, Hold On 'Til the Night, so just hearing the Harry Potter music now [playing on the red carpet] brings me back into the studio, where I'm like yelling at the producers, "No, let's get a little bit more strings on it!"
