David Tennant and Matt Smith on The Graham Norton Show
Matt Smith as Newton Artemis Fido “Newt” Scamander
Scamander’s full name is drawn from a variety of sources; Newton refers to the newt creature, which in turn is used as Scamander’s nickname, the surname is possibly also taken from the known English mathematician Isaac Newton; Artemis is the name of the Greek goddess of the hunt; Fido is a common dog name, from the Latin for faithful; and Scamander sounds like “salamander”. His nickname “Newt” is a small, brightly coloured salamander.
