Never let it be said that ‘man of the moment’ Eddie Redmayne isn’t up for a challenge. Hardly has the dust settled on the young Brit’s critically acclaimed portrayal of the theoretical physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking in the award winning The Theory of Everything, than he’s embarking on another equally career defining role. Variety magazine’s website reported today on the first picture to be released by Working Title Films from their new bio-pic The Danish Girl, based on the life of the Danish artist Einar Wegener, who became famous as one of the first men to have a sex-change operation. The film set in the 1920s, is being directed by Tom Hooper who guided Redmayne in Les Misérables, and co-stars Alicia Vikander as Wegener’s wife Gerda who helped and supported her husband during his transition. Redmayne is reported by Variety as telling the Daily Mail that he was attracted by the emotional side of the artist’s nature saying, “we’re looking at everything from a feminine perspective”. “I think it’s the most sensitive role I have played.” If the first picture is anything to go by it seems Redmayne could well be repeating his Oscar success again soon.
