The British actor is one of modern cinema’s polymaths. For his latest role, he ventures into fantasy blockbuster territory

Lauded stage thesp, Academy Award-winner, OBE recipient and potential 007, Eddie Redmayne has come a long way from a childhoodyen for performing, and a post-university spell as a model.

Early film roles gave way to theatre success in the likes of Red – for which he won a Tony Award – and Richard II, before a return to cinema in My Week With Marilyn and Les Misérables. It was in 2014’s The Theory Of Everything that he struck gold with both public and critics, winningan Oscar for his portrayal of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking.

One transformation followed another as he played transgender artist Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, and now he’s morphed into a blockbusterstar for Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

For Redmayne, these shifts are guided by instinct: 

“When I read a script, I’ll have an instant gut reaction. It’s an annoying phrase, ‘trust your instincts’, because I’m like, ‘How do I know what that is?’ Recognising what your instincts are is half the battle.”
