Seattle might be known for its coffee culture, luscious green landscape, and rainy days, but it’s also the hometown of many actors and actresses. While you’re sheltering in place, we’ve put together four of the best movies starring Seattle natives.
1. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

takes you back in time to the year 1926. The story focuses on Newt Scamander, who arrives in New York City and meets an assortment of characters that compose the enthralling story. One such intriguing figure is Queenie Goldstein, Newt’s sister-in-law, played by Seattle native Alison Sudol.
