Monday Morning Man: Eddie Redmayne!

It’s so nice to see someone becoming a big star who is actually very talented – who can act and sing and is really good looking to top it off!

That would be Eddie Redmayne who is one of the stars of the big screen adaptation of Les Miserables which I watched last week.

Eddie leaped onto my radar starring opposite with Michelle Williams in My Week With Marilyn which earned him a BAFTA Rising Star Award nomination.

The 30-year-old actor won the 2010 Tony Award for his performance in the play Red. He originated the role on the London stage and won the Olivier Award for his stellar work.

He’s a beauty with brains: Eddie attended Eton College and went on to study art history at Cambridge and graduated in 2003.

By that time, he had made his professional stage debut for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in Twelfth Night.

The photogenic Eddie became a model for Burberry in 2008 and he has been juggling his sstage career with film roles in such movies as The Other Boleyn Girl, Savage Grace, The Good Shepherd, Powder Blue and The Yellow Hankerchief.

3 Remarks

  1. SAVAGE GRACE is the latest feature film from Tom Kalin, who made SWOON. This brilliantly executed film includes the extremely difficult situation of mother-son incest, although it also deals with many other facets of a certain privileged milieu of wealth, indolence and suppressed passions. The son (Redmayne) also has gay dalliances. Anyway, it is eminently worth seeking out. Both Redmayne and Julianne Moore give award-worthy performances — but, of course, this film had a limited life because of its intense and forthright focus on something that many people find uncomfortable to confront.

  2. Eddie is an great actor and singer! Thanks, Greg!
