December 7, 2015   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Site Comments Off on 2015 Fan Q&A with Eddie

Yesterday, a select group of 7 fans were given the opportunity to participate in a conference call with Eddie. Each of those chosen to participate was asked to prepare 2 to 3 questions to ask Eddie. Time allowed each of us to ask 2 questions in turn. Eddie was extremely gracious and thoughtful with his responses. Be sure to read all of it because at the end he gives a small message to his fans.

This amazing opportunity was available thanks to the support of Eddie’s agents and the organization of Charlotte from BespokeRedmayne and Fran from Redbatched & Cumbermayned! I consider myself so blessed to have been apart of the call and to share it with the other fans. And a giant thank you to Eddie who took time out of his busy schedule to do this for us!

Please take the time to visit each of the sites/tumblrs that these ladies have created as a tribute to Eddie. You will not be disappointed! Unfortunately due to illness Charlotte was not able to participate but you should also visit out her site too!

Thanks to the dedication and time of Fran: Hi Eddie, it’s Fran from Munich.

ER: Hi!

F: You said when you finished shooting The Theory of Everything that the character of Stephen Hawking stayed with you for a very long time. Did you experience something similar after you finished shooting The Danish Girl?

ER: You know I always, I sort of am not a method actor, so I always tend to think that I’m quite good at getting out of character and leaving the work at work rather than taking it home. But I think sometimes character traits or physical elements stay within me a wee bit, and it’s normally Hannah that points these out. So, I’m not sure after The Danish Girl, I found probably something in my hand movements, there’s sort of elements of that, but I always think that all of those characteristics are gone. But occasionally Hannah will find them out.

F: Thank you!

Kate: Hi Eddie, it’s Kate from iloveeddieredmayne.com

ER: Hey Kate, how are you?

K: I’m well, how are you?

ER: Yes, good, really good.

K: I’ve read that in order to understand Lili deeper, you spent a considerable amount of time with trans women. What was the most powerful thing they helped you understand about their trans experience? And do you think your role as Lili will help viewers understand and empathize with this experience?

ER: It’s difficult to think about a specific thing. One particular woman, Cadence Valentine and her partner Trista, they were so generous with their time, and especially Cadence gave me two lines: It came to a point that she knew before she transitioned she needed to give her everything and anything and live a life authentic, that was the first thing. And also her love for her partner was so strong because she had to go on this journey in some ways to find herself, it was a constant question of how deep her partner’s pool of empathy was. And that phrase ‘How deep was Trista’s pool of empathy’, and that she would give her everything and anything to live a life authentic, those were the two things I sort of had written on the front of my script, and I tried to refer to.

There were amazing specific stories. What I would do is take certain moments in the film which obviously is in the 1920ies and then try and show them to the women that I was meeting and ask them: ‘Can you relate to any of these?’ For example, with the ball scene when Lili goes out for the first time, one trans woman described how early on in her transition Halloween was her favorite night of the year because this meant that she could get dressed up and be a woman with the safety of it being a day of dress-up. And she was going out one night dressed as a woman and was in a bar and this guy came to hit on her. And for her, she described it as this extraordinary shot of adrenaline because this man was seeing her as a woman, as who she was, mixed with the utter fear and danger of what would happen if this person realizes I’m not who I am. And this mixture of adrenaline with fear of violence was something that I felt like I can take that scenario and can place it into the ball scene. It was a really helpful moment.

I suppose for me the film is foremost a story about love. As far as what I hope it does, I hope it continues a conversation and discussion that has happened over the last years and has becoming mainstream in the past year or two and in any way the film will continue that and educate people like I’ve been educated or just encourage people to learn about trans experiences then this would be a wonderful thing for me.

K: Yeah, exactly. Thank you.

ER: Thank you.

Cris: Hi it’s Cris from Italy. After all these magnificent and stunning cinematic interpretations, would you go back to the theatre?

ER: I really want to go back to theatre. But this weird thing happened, for many years it was difficult to get a part in a film and specifically interesting scripts, because you are sort of low down the pecking order, and what has happened over the past year or so was that for the first time perhaps one gets more interesting opportunities. But for me it’s always down to the script really. I’ve been reading plays and there’s some great things around, so it’s about finding the right thing really. I hope all my life to get the mix between theatre and film.

C: Okay, thank you.

Zoe: In the past, you’ve talked about how you reach emotional moments in scenes – having things shouted at you off-camera (Hick, Theory of Everything), starting a scene again without stopping (Les Mis) – how did you get ready for Lili’s more emotional scenes?:

ER: That’s a really good question. I think it was probably more about people I met in preparation and hearing their stories of, I suppose, their vulnerability. All the trans women I met were incredibly strong people, they would always talk with great strength about what they’ve been through, but hearing that vulnerability … Tom Hooper describes how in life all of us have blocks between ourselves and the best version of ourselves. He says there can be no more profound block than that between the gender that we’ve been assigned at birth and that which we are and what that takes. I’ve actually found the related experiences of the trans women I met incredibly moving and that’s were I tried to get emotionally for me.

Ali: Hi, I’m Ali, I run eddieredmayne.net. Of all the productions you have been a part of, which one did you feel you learned the most about yourself as an individual?

ER: (Long delighted sigh) I think probably Red, a play I did in London and then in New York, and it was about everything I’m interested in. It was about artists and history of art and so I had I suppose a sort of cosmetic interest in, but what it talked about, there was this wonderful discussion in the play about Dionysus and Apollo, and those two different gods represent in some ways two different ways of living. One is order and the other is some sort of Bacchanalian chaos and joy, and living life is oscillating between those two things, and if you have a patch on one of those for a moment that’s were happiness is, because the second you have knowledge of your happiness you have already moved on. And I found this a great life lesson.

Also because when I was doing this play I played Rothko’s assistant, and he was a fictional character. But when I was doing this play in New York the widow of the artist who had been Rothko’s last assistant came and saw the play with lots of elder women who’ve been taught by this guy, Dan Rice, and I started reading around about Dan’s work and he had written this lovely thing about being an artist: ‘Being an artist is not about palette and all that but the aspiration for perfection with the acknowledgement that you’ll never get there.’ And one of the things about acting is when you do a play, you never get it right and it’s endlessly frustrating, more frustrating on film, because you only have this one morning or one day to get the scene right and you always leave knowing you not got close to what it is. But I suppose hearing what Dan had to say, it’s about learning to enjoy the process whilst continuously aspiring to do your best although you never actually are going to achieve this.

Judit: Hi, I’m Judit from Hungary.

ER: Hey Judit.

J: I know you like practical art, did you make some paintings or drawings for The Danish Girl movie?

ER: That’s a very good question. I did some drawings and a wee bit of painting to try to get what Einar’s, or Lili when she was living as Einar, what her technique was. Alicia and I talked a lot about the difference between the way those two artists painted, and certainly in the set design in that scene when we are in the artist studio Gerda’s character has a flamboyant kind of mess of a corner as were as Lili’s corner is much more ordered. And the way she paints when she’s living as Einar is very … I wanted it to be very controlled because Lana Wachowski has described how Einar’s paintings would always go back to painting subject-matter, researching into the parts really. I did a wee bit of drawing and painting to try and work out how she might have painted when she was Einar. And it was interesting for Alicia as well because she just shot Tulip Fever and she had played an artist in that as well. It’s always fun playing artists.

J: I know you like practical art. Thank you!

December 5, 2015   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Images, Magazines Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne’s Defining Moment

DuJour did a series of actor’s defining moment’s on their most recent films. Here Eddie talks about his’s during the filming of The Danish Girl.

“There is a scene in the film, in which my character Lili is still living as Einar, and she goes out in Paris to a peep show,” Redmayne says of his role as a transgender woman in 1920s Europe. “There are men watching this woman dance, and Lili watches through a pane of glass, and then starts emulating her. This woman looks through the glass and sees the real Lili, not just her in the male guise. It was an extraordinary scene to shoot because I hadn’t met the woman playing the dancer before, and we didn’t really get to know each other, but we had this spontaneous and improvised moment together. It was unlike any other acting experience I ever had, and it was completely unique. It was just a moment and then it was gone, but I think it was one of the more important moments in the film.”

December 5, 2015   Ali   Danish Girl Comments Off on Tom Hooper’s Defining Moment on The Danish Girl

DuJour.com shares Tom Hooper’s defining moment when filming The Danish Girl.

A defining moment for me on The Danish Girl was Alicia Vikander’s London screen test with Eddie. It was the first time I saw Alicia bring Gerda to life. But it was also the first time I saw Eddie as Lili Elbe,” says Hooper, the film’s director. “I was moved to tears by their extraordinary realization of the scene, beautifully written by Lucinda Coxon. Eddie joked that ‘there was no suspense about who I was going to cast as Gerda.’ He was right.”
