Not too many actors have consistently chosen challenging roles in films, but Eddie Redmayne definitely has — from a paralysed genius to a transgender woman — he does it all and we’re still crushing on him!
Eddie Redmayne fans all over the world are thankful on January 6th each year because 35 years ago, a star was born in London, England.
Born Edward John David Redmayne, Eddie has become one of the most recognised millenial male actors to make it big in Hollywood. But what makes Eddie Redmayne your “It” guy? Perhaps, it’s his sexy freckles, his green eyes, his slim build, or his amazing acting? Well to us the theory is… everything!
If you’re not yet a fan of this Theory of Everything star, by the end of this list you probably will be. Here are 15 reasons Eddie Redmayne will definitely be your “It” guy!
1. He has English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh ancestry.
His great-grandfather was Sir Richard Augustine Studdert Redmayne, a well-known civil and mining engineer.
2. He is not just Hollywood royalty, but also went to school with a royalty.
He attended high school at Eton College, a prestigious boys’ independent boarding school in England. While there, one of his classmates was Prince William, the future king!
3. He’s colour-blind…but does that even matter?
He is colour-blind, so he can’t see red and green. Luckily, his wife, Hannah Bagshawe is the one he turns to for his outfits!
4. He was voted #1 in the list of “50 Best Dressed British Men,” by GQ magazine in 2015.
Well, looks like his wife’s clothing advice clearly paid off.
