Saturday Morning Man: Eddie Redmayne!
EDDIE REDMAYNEEddie Redmayne is a 2010 Tony Award nominee 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: The 28-year-old English model and actor 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 stage career with film roles in such movies as The Other Boleyn Girl, Savage Grace, The Good Shepherd, Powder Blue and The Yellow Hankerchief.

He recently shared some of his Broadway memories with Vanity Fair as part of a photo gallery of this year’s Tony nominees:
Earliest Broadway memory: “I came to New York when I was about 13 years old, and I was taken to see The Fantasticks.Most terrifying Broadway memory: “Walking down the stairs for the gypsy-dress-rehearsal, opening the door to the back of the theater, and hearing this absolutely terrifying sound of 800 people seated in an audience. My heart sank.”

Actor Eddie Redmayne attends the 76th Annual Drama League Awards  ceremony and luncheon at the Marriot Marquis on May 21, 2010 in New York  City.

One Remark

  1. One of my favorite actors, I first saw him in an interesting Australian film called “Murderous Intent” with the equally toothsome Tom Sturridge. DVD-only release in the US.

    Couple more notes: At Eton, he was a classmate of Prince William. You can see him again this July, when “The Pillars of the Earth” runs on Starz (home of “Spartacus”).
