Eddie Redmayne is an absolute gent. I got to meet him when I interviewed him for My Week with Marilyn a few months ago and I could have chatted with him all day long. He’s such a nice guy, humble and is one of Britain’s best upcoming actors. He’s currently up for the Rising Star Award at this year’s BAFTAs (which take place this Sunday 12th February) and I hope that he wins it.

BAFTA Guru have done a great interview with  Eddie about his acting career, where it started and where it’s going which I’ve placed below. If you’re not familiar with BAFTA Guru, it’s a site for all things movies, giving you advice on how to get into the industry from some of the finest filmmakers and actors in the world. If you’ve not been there, you must check it out.

In this interview, Eddie also gives advice on how to get into acting and also talks about what inspired him to get into the craft in the first place. Have a watch below and make sure you keep your eyes peeled for his career going forward as I’m expecting great things.
