My Fun Interview with Eddie Redmayne for “The Theory of Everything”

Uploaded on Friday 7 November 2014


Eddie Redmayne and I go way back! HA! As far back as, oh, “Les Miserables” where the actor starred as Marcus. When I sat down with him for the press junket for “The Theory of Everything,” he remembered me, although I was blonde during the “Les Mis” interview. But needless to say, I continue to have respect for Redmayne both as an actor and a person. He’s just utterly nice!

And in “The Theory of Everything,” Redmayne is sure to get a Best Actor Oscar nod for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking, the brilliant guy who is being considered the Albert Einstein of our generation!

In this interview, we talked about:

*** What got him interested in making the movie?
*** Humanizing the icon of hope
*** Hawking should investigate the mathematical computation of love
*** The love story of the movie (Felicity Jones plays his wife)
*** How he was able to show the progression of Hawking’s disease even if the film was not shot in sequence
*** Meeting the real-life Stephen Hawking

Have fun!
