Fawley’s gregarious and flamboyant style is a marked contrast to the taciturn nature of his predecessor.
Fawley was Minister for Magic during the events of at least the first two films in the Fantastic Beasts series, which take place in 1926 and 1927. In the scene at MACUSA headquarters where the International Confederation of Wizards is meeting, Newt Scamander addresses someone in the crowd of dignitaries as "Minister." This may be intended to be Hector Fawley. However, the actor who played that part is listed by his agent as having played the part of "Hector Podmore." The part is listed simply as "British Envoy" on IMDb
