‘The Theory of Everything’ changed Eddie Redmayne’s life

Eddie-RedmayneFor every actor there comes a phase in his life that takes him to the next level. For Eddie Redmayne, his grand role in ‘The Theory of Everything’ has surely changed things for him. In the February 2015 issue of the Glamour magazine, the ‘Les Miserables’ start told how he got the opportunity to portray Stephen Hawking.
He said, ““I chased it pretty hard. I called [the director] James [Marsh], and we met in London. He drank a few coffees; I downed a few pints. As I got more tipsy, I got more effusive about my desire to play this part. I had no idea that there was such an astounding story behind Hawking.”
About the preparations for the role he said, “I had months to work with ALS patients. Even though it is such a horrific disease, you find great humor and vivacity from people in the most extreme circumstances.” And after he got done with the production, Eddie knew exactly what he wanted to do- “Walk with [wife Hannah Bagshawe] in London and go to the Pizza Express for a La Reine with extra pepperoni. Real classy.”
