January 25, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne: 5 Things You Should Know

I just came across this article that was published last month by People.com and I thought it was a great read for all Eddie fans.

Eddie Redmayne, breakout star of Les Miserables, is receiving awards buzz as the student French revolutionary Marius, who falls in love with Cosette, played by Amanda Seyfried.

Redmayne, who also played Michelle Williams’s love interest in My Week with Marilyn, is enjoying a booming career. But you’d never know that the 30-year-old Brit has Kim Cattrall to thank for his success, or that he was destined for a role in Les Mis as a child. P.S.: Redmayne’s also won a Tony and an Olivier Award for the play Red.

Here are five things you should know about Redmayne:

Kim Cattrall’s approval was pivotal: “I did a play in London called The Goat,” he recalls. “I won a prize, and I couldn’t go be there, but my parents went, and Kim Cattrall gave the prize. When my dad saw that Samantha from Sex and the City was giving me a prize, then it affirmed in my parents’ mind that they were allowed to let their son continue to be an actor.”

In fact, the two stars didn’t meet until years later, but Cattrall is anxious to see his latest turn: “In 2005 I had the honor of presenting him the Ian Charlston Award as ‘the most promising newcomer’ at the Evening Standard Awards in the U.K.,” she told PEOPLE Thursday. “Unfortunately he was away working, but I did meet him a few years later and he told me his father was impressed he won the award but over the moon I was presenting. I have followed his career ever since and cannot wait to see him in Les Miserables.”

His first Les Mis experience: “I saw it when I was 7 and wanted to be Gavroche, [the young street urchin who helps the rebels].”

His ‘oh s–––’ moment on set: “We were lying in the sewers half dead, swimming in s–––, and you’re actually lying there for 12 hours. We’re doing a close-up, and [director Tom Hooper] is saying, ‘Hugh, Eddie, you need to be still. Or it doesn’t look like you’re dead.’ We’re like, ‘Dude! We can’t control our bodily functions.'”

Be careful going to karaoke with him: “My karaoke song of choice is “Bat Out of Hell”. About three minutes in to the 12-minute song, I keep getting, ‘Shut up!'”

He’s pals with Spider-Man: “Andrew Garfield is is one of my best friends,” he says. “I get great inspiration from he and Tom Sturridge, friends of mine who are my age who are doing great work.”

I thought this was really interesting and wanted to share. To see a large image go here.

Lil Hydra has released this top-notch piece for Tom Hooper’s (The King’s Speech) feature adaptation of ‘Les Misérables,’ centering on Eddie Redmayne’s Marius and Samantha Barks’ Eponine. The comment Lil Hydra provided for the pic is as follows: “Another drawing from Les Mis. Samantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne as Eponine and Marius. Done with Copic markers and black pen.” Check out Lil Hydra’s page for even more pics.

Earlier this month, ‘Les Misérables’ won three Golden Globes, including “best motion picture (musical or comedy)”, ”best actor in a comedy or musical award” for Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Jean Valjean, and “best supporting actress” for Anne Hathaway’s Fantine performance. ’Les Misérables’ has also picked up eight Oscar nominations and nine BAFTA nods.

January 25, 2013   Ali   Images, Richard II Comments Off on Richard II Stills

At the end of 2011 Eddie appeared as Richard II in the Donmar Warehouse production of Richard II in London. His performance was acclaimed by audiences & critics.

His masterstroke turns out to be casting the 29-year-old Eddie Redmayne in the title role. Upon his youthful shoulders, the mantle of power weighs heavily from the beautifully realised opening scene, as he sits upon his throne, an elfin figure in a long white robe in a cloistered hall full of smells and bells. – The Telegraph

Eddie Redmayne’s brilliant Richard is already installed on his throne as the audience take their seats for this marvellous farewell production by the Donmar’s departing artistic director, Michael Grandage. – The Independent

I have added some stills to the gallery from his performance.

January 24, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Les Misérables Comments Off on Chatting With Tom Hooper and Eddie Redmayne About Les Mis

Paper Mag did this interview featuring quotes from Eddie & Tom Hooper about Les Misérables

Twenty-six years after the Broadway production of Les Misérables collected eight Tony Awards, Tom Hooper’s film version seems to be keeping apace with the success of its predecessor. Nominated for eight Oscars and winning three Golden Globes (including one of the biggies — Best Picture, Comedy or Musical), the film owes much of its success to Hooper’s impeccable sense of detail, his unique directing choices (like having all of the actors sing live) and of course his thoughtful casting. While Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Amanda Seyfried might be getting a lot of the buzz, one of the best performances in the film comes from Eddie Redmayne (who many may remember as Marilyn Monroe’s favorite ginger in My Week With Marilyn). Eddie and Tom both took a break from awards season, to chat with us about the making of Les Mis.

Eddie Redmayne:

Who is your favorite character in Les Mis?
I first saw the play when I was 7 and I just thought Gavroche was a total rock star. I actually wanted to be him and then when I the read the script, performed Marius, and watched the film, I still wanted to be him.

You’ve worked with Tom before on the Elizabeth I miniseries. Were there any similarities between working together on that project and this one?
After reading for Elizabeth I, I was stopped at the door and Tom asked if I could ride a horse and I said “yes.” Next thing you know, I was in Lithuania with 40+ men galloping on horses. I’m in spurs on a huge stallion behind Helen Mirren, who’s in a rather large, opulent dress. I thought to myself, “At what point do I admit I wasn’t totally telling the truth?” Within a few moments, Tom picked up a big speaker and shouted, “Redmayne you’re a bloody liar!” And so then during Les Misérables, he asked, “Can you actually sing?” And of course, somehow I ended up on a giant horse waving a huge flag [in Les Misérables]. [I’m] only assuming it was payback.

Ninety-eight percent of the singing was live — did that make you nervous?
A little. Brilliant lip-syncing still seems artificial and great acting is about total control. An earpiece pumped in a live piano accompaniment that slowed down or sped up as we sung. That allowed me to control the song instead of it controlling me. If I had recorded it two months prior to shooting, there would be no freedom, which would take away the acting. The whole thing was a very liberating experience.

What was one of the most intimate moments on set?
During “A Little Fall of Rain,” there were 100 dead people all around, Eponine was in my arms dying and a single drop of rain fell on her forehead. Singing at that level with no cameras in my face and no loud projecting — just singing in a whispe — felt odd but entirely raw.

What’s one major difference between yourself and Marius?
I’ve always found Eponine to be very sexy.

Tom Hooper

Are there any parts in the film that made you cry?
I truly connected in the end, when Jean Valjean dies. Usually, death isn’t taken serious, it’s either part of the plot or it plays out like a scene from a video game. In the film I wanted to make sure it stares you in the face.

Was Hugh Jackman a shoo-in for the part?
I auditioned everyone properly and spent an extraordinary three hours with him. When Hugh sings, it is so powerful. You don’t want him to speak — you yearn for that other communication. I saw this emotional side of him I’ve never seen and I wanted to bring it to the world.

Samantha Bark killed it in her first screen performance.
She did. I first saw her and the play 2 ½ years ago, when I watched the 25th anniversary performance and when I saw it, she totally struck me. That part had such high competition and she did all the rigorous auditions, eventually beating everyone out.

Even though the songs are classics, each actor seemed to give their own unique rendition. Anne Hathaway’s version of “I Dreamed a Dream” was breathtaking. How did you direct her?
I told her to forget that it was an iconic song and that it had ever been sung and to just react. To sell an illusion, there has to be little moments of hesitation. During “I Dreamed a Dream,” Anne gave that 10-second pause before “then it all went wrong” and she earned that moment. She told me that she opened a dark box, looked in, closed it, and hoped to never go back. Some have an indulgent pleasure of being in pain — she was just in pain… so much so that I was worried for her. I’m almost embarrassed to say but I felt like this was one of those moments that will be talked about for years.
