Biography

Eddie Redmayne proved his mettle by playing emotionally distraught characters who often struggled with their sexuality and morality. The classically trained actor first impressed on stage in his native London, delivering haunting and award-winning performances in such productions as "The Goat" (2004) and "Red" (2009). He began making inroads across the pond in independent features like "The Yellow Handkerchief" (2008) and the controversial drama "Savage Grace" (2007), where he had an incestuous-turned-tragic relationship with Julianne Moore's character. Redmayne also excelled in the miniseries arena, landing lead roles on the BBC hit series "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" (2008) and on the award-winning epic saga "The Pillars of the Earth" (Starz Entertainment, 2010), a historical drama following the construction of a cathedral in 12th century England during The Anarchy. In 2011, Redmayne impressed with his scene-stealing performance in "My Week with Marilyn," as a lowly yet smart studio gofer who had a brief and bizarre fling with screen goddess Marilyn Monroe in the late 1950s. The talented performer next thrilled audiences with his performance as Marius, a student revolutionary in the epic film adaptation of the musical smash "Les Misérables" (2012). With each new role, Redmayne not only moved closer to A-list status, but further proved his range as one of contemporary cinema's most promising young actors. He cemented that stature with his 2015 Oscar win for his portrayal of physicist Stephen Hawking in the biopic "The Theory of Everything" (2014).
