With Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore due out in theaters on April 15th, Jessica Williams joined us for an episode of Collider Ladies Night to discuss how she went from Daily Show correspondent to picking up the wand and joining the Wizarding World franchise.

After making a brief cameo appearance in The Crimes of Grindelwald, Williams’ Professor Eulalie Hicks becomes a main player in the third film of the Fantastic Beasts series. She’s a charms professor at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who has a history with Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore. When Gellert Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen) starts making new moves to assume control of the Wizarding World, Dumbledore knows he won’t be able to stop him alone so assembles a team of the best of the best in an effort to take him down. That team includes someone who’s especially skilled in defensive magic, Williams’ Lally.

Williams’ star soared when she became the youngest Daily Show correspondent in 2012. While her run on that show could lead some to believe that success as a comedian and host is the main career goal, acting is actually Williams’ top priority and has been ever since she was a kid courtesy of the support and encouragement she got from her family, especially from her grandmother. Hear all about that, get the play-by-play of her Daily Show audition, find out how Williams deals with on-set challenges and loads more on this episode of Collider Ladies Night!
