A Northern Ireland actress who stars in the new JK Rowling blockbuster said a misheard phone call meant it took her a week to realise she had landed the coveted role.

Belfast native Jenn Murray couldn't believe her luck when she heard she had won the role of Chastity in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which premieres in London tonight.

She said: "I got a phone call from my agent and we were talking in the airport and it was really loud, so I thought he said that I didn't get the part and I was gutted.

"So a week went by and I had processed the fact that I didn't get the part and then he rang me to give me details of the recall and I was like 'But I didn't get it' and he was like 'Yes you did!'

"I had totally misheard him."
