January 11, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Birdsong, Les Misérables Comments Off on From Birdsong to Les Misérables, Eddie Redmayne is taking Hollywood by storm

Radio Times released this wonderful article on Eddie that I wanted to share!

Chiselled cheekbones, hair gelled into spikes and a tightly fitted tweed suit with drain-pipe trousers are the first things I register about Eddie Redmayne as he bounces into the Claridges hotel room booked for our interview. I can see why Burberry asked him to model for them. Flattery is often the best way to open an interview with an actor (they’re an insecure lot) so I tell him that Radio Times readers loved his performance in the TV adaptation of Birdsong last year.

“How do you know?” he asks, a cheeky grin spreading across his angular face. “Did they write lots of steamy letters?”

There was plenty of steam in Redmayne’s performance as the young British army officer having an affair with a married Frenchwoman, but he says it was one of the hardest jobs he’s ever done. “Because the drama jumps between war scenes in the trenches to an indoor period drama, there would be days where I would spend the morning up to my neck in mud, get hosed down over lunch and spend the afternoon doing a love scene in the drawing room.”

Mud, rain and amorous clinches with a Frenchwoman are also features of the young actor’s latest, and possibly starriest, role to date, the film adaptation of Les Misérables. The stakes are high – Les Mis is the world’s longest running musical, seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries worldwide and the film is a big-budget affair with a high wattage cast including Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.

It’s no surprise that Eddie Redmayne should be included in such a high profile venture, but what is interesting is that he’s one of several Old Etonians dominating the acting world at the moment. The list includes Dominic West, Damien Lewis, Tom Hiddleston and Harry Lloyd. Redmayne points out that they’ve all continued to do theatre alongside their TV and film work. As well as Birdsong and the film My Week with Marilyn, Redmayne also starred in Michael Grandage’s Richard II at the Donmar Warehouse in 2011.

January 10, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews Comments Off on Why Eddie Redmayne’s Girlfriend Helps Him Get Dressed

People.com spoke to Eddie about his red carpet looks and he shared that his girlfriend Hannah Bagshawe helps out in that department and why.

Eddie Redmayne, the British heartthrob who plays Marius in the film adaptation of Les Misérables, owes his girlfriend many thanks for helping him become one of Hollywood’s newest best-dressed male stars.

“I’m color blind,” Redmayne told PEOPLE on Tuesday at the National Board of Review in New York, where he and his Les Mis costars Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried won the best ensemble cast award.

“I’m confused with colors. When I go out to premieres and events, I have to check with my girlfriend [Hannah Bagshawe] that the trousers match the top,” he explained. “I recently wore a blue suit — and I had to ask her if it was really blue rather than purple. She assured me it was blue. I could not tell the difference.”

The freckle-faced actor, who played Michelle Williams‘s love interest in the 2011 drama My Week with Marilyn, is tight-lipped about his personal life with Bagshawe, but said, “I’m lucky to be with someone who is very supportive.”

The couple has been dating for about a year.

January 9, 2013   Ali   Articles & Interviews, Les Misérables Comments Off on Eddie Redmayne compares ‘Les Miserables’ to ‘Twilight’

Zap2It caught up with Eddie at the People’s Choice Awards and while being interviewed he compared Les Mis to Twilight …

If you don’t already know Eddie Redmayne’s name, you soon will. The British star had a breakout performance in “Les Miserables,” which is great for him because he is a huge fan of the musical.

“[‘Les Miserables’] has such a massive fanbase — I am one of those fans,” he admitted on the red carpet, comparing the tale to “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” “Back in the day, ‘Les Mis’ was kind of one of those.”

He should know about the comparison, too: Redmayne made a movie with Kristen Stewart called “The Yellow Handkerchief.” Though he might not get the same sort of worldwide superstardom that she now has thanks to “Twilight,” this still is a pretty big deal to him. “I will be lying to say it wasn’t a terrifying experience,” he said of “Les Miserables.”
