Rising star Eddie Redmayne caught everyone’s eye with his performance in last year’s Les Miserables and now on the verge of landing the biggest movie role of his career thus far. The project is Theory of Everything and Redmayne would be playing physicist Stephen Hawking. Oscar winning documentary filmmaker James Marsh (Man on Wire) is set to helm the picture.
Theory of Everything, penned by Anthony McCarten, will explore the relationship between Hawking and his wife. It surely will be a very challenging role for Redmayne. Anyone familiar with Stephen Hawking is aware of the fact that he’s been battling a motor neuron disease that’s related to ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) for the majority of his life. He was first diagnosed at age 21 and doctors expected he had about two more years to live. Understandably, news of the diagnosis left Hawking depressed and he saw little reason to continue with his studies. Those feelings started to change when Hawking began a relationship and got engaged to his soon-to-be wife, Jane Wilde, who , as Hawking put it himself, gave him “something to live for”. It will be interesting to see how the relationship is explored in the film and what Redmayne can bring to the role.
No word yet on who will play Hawking’s wife, but filming is expected to start in the early fall.

As you all probably know, Eddie is performing in the 85th Annual Academy Awards along with the cast of ‘Les Miserables’ tonight. As of a few minutes ago, he walked the red carpet looking as dapper as usual in a Alexander McQueen tux and accompanied by his girlfriend Hannah. I’ve added the first handful of pictures to the gallery. Make sure to keep checking back as I’ll keep adding more as the night progresses. Enjoy!

Today is a very special day for us here at Eddie Redmayne Online as it marks the 5th anniversary of the site! Although work backstage started a long time before that, it was on February 22nd 2008 that the site was launched and I made the first ever post which you can read here. And since we’re already walking down memory lane, if you’d like to revisit and take a look again at some of the designs the site has sported over the years, you can do so on this website.
Lots of things have happened during the half a decade that the site has been online and so I would like to use the chance and thank everyone who has helped or contributed to the site in any way: Artemis, Mari, Tran, Sarah, The Eddie Redmayne Appreciation Society, Lorna, Arwen, Celyn, Kristina, Tracy & the troupe, all the lovely Redmayniacs that visit the site and/or follow us on twitter/facebook and last but not least, the amazing Kate. Thank you!
