February 11, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Co-Stars Comments Off on Alicia Vikander Reveals the Advice Eddie Redmayne Gave Her on Handling Her Newfound Fame

Alicia Vikander may be new to the red carpet, but she’s handling her Hollywood “It girl” status with grace, thanks to some advice to from her co-star in The Danish Girl, Eddie Redmayne. “I’m still trying to get used to it,” she told reporters at the Oscars Nominee Luncheon on Monday. “Just promoting the films to start with, the beginning of last year, was totally new to me.”

Vikander may not have had to experience doing press until after filming wrapped, but she got a firsthand look at how Redmayne handled his fame. “When we were shooting last year, he was in the mix of doing all this. I think I wondered like, ‘How do you keep your head straight and you have to fly out each weekend to L.A. and do interviews?’” she said. The actor’s advice was genius, reminding Vikander that while his schedule is busy, he’s lucky to be doing what he’s doing.

“He said try to enjoy it, because it is pretty wonderful, and that’s actually what I’m trying to do.” It looks like his advice paid off, as Vikander is simultaneously shooting the new Bourne sequel and handling awards season like a pro.


February 11, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Comments Off on Actor Eddie Redmayne comes with his own briefcase

Eddie spoke to The Pottermore Correspondent about the first time he met David Yates, the director of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and how he had his very own briefcase like Newt.

‘This is actually slightly embarrassing…’

Eddie Redmayne is sheepishly telling me the story of meeting Fantastic Beasts director David Yates for the first time. There’s a broad, bright smile on his freckled face as he does.

Eddie has a case. A tan leather case just like the one his character Newt Scamander keeps his beasts in. It’s the first thing I notice, sitting by Eddie’s feet. He notices me notice it and I say, ‘Is that an Eddie case… or a Newt case?’

‘It’s an Eddie case,’ he says, patting it fondly.

‘I’ve had it for about eight years. My dad works in the city and has always had a briefcase. I always did this acting thing for a living, which didn’t feel like a proper job and I wanted something that made me feel like I was doing a proper job and so I got this case. I use it whenever I go on set. I keep my script and whatever mementos I find useful in it.’

He clears his throat gently, as a little chortle escapes his lips. ‘So when David and I had our first meeting about this movie I had this case with me. We met in a pub in Soho and sat down by a roaring fire. As he started telling me about Newt and the basic plot of this film – which included Newt having a magic case – I said, “I promise I didn’t know about Newt’s case. I didn’t bring this as some sort of weird method audition – like, don’t worry David, I come with my own case!” And I’m afraid it’s still here, it’s still got my life in it. Not quite as much as Newt has in his case, though…’

It wasn’t just the briefcase-shaped omen that convinced Eddie to take this role. It was the great respect he has for J.K. Rowling and David Yates (and Harry Potter for that matter, but we’ll get to that another time).

‘David has such a lovely manner and this incredible kindness to him. There was no question I wanted to do this movie. For me, it was a question of whether I’d get the gig. When I read J.K. Rowling’s script, I just had my mind blown. I was so excited by it. The amazing thing was that I found it funny, I found it a thriller, I found it romantic. At the end, I was deeply moved by it.’

February 9, 2016   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Awards Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne tells of ‘extraordinary’ Oscars ride at nominees luncheon

Eddie Redmayne has revealed he is trying to enjoy the “extraordinary ride” of his second best actor nod in two years as he joined his fellow Oscar nominees for a celebratory lunch.

Eddie, who won the Academy Award last year for his role as Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, is nominated for his portrayal of transgender artist Lili Elbe.

He joined his fellow nominees – including his co-star Alicia Vikander, who is nominated for the best supporting actress Oscar for playing Elbe’s wife Gerda in The Danish Girl – for the annual Oscar luncheon and “class photo” at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles.

He said: “It’s such an extraordinary ride. Last year was like being hit by a bulldozer and it’s such a frenzy of emotions that you try to remain open enough to enjoy it and remember it.”

Eddie will attend the Oscar ceremony with his wife Hannah Bagshawe, who is pregnant with their first child, and he said the pair would try to take it easy beforehand.

“You think of it as an evening event but it takes such a long time, I will have a calm day,” he said.

“I promise Hannah whenever we come to LA that the sun will be shining, but it rained last year. We will have a gentle day and relax and enjoy it. Last year I was such a frenzy of nerves .”

Asked if he would have a glass of champagne, he replied: “Several.”
