Debuting on the stage of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is never a bad way to break into show business. Eddie Redmayne’s career launched from this auspicious begin- ning, eventually winning him an Olivier Award and a Tony for his acclaimed work in John Logan’s Red. Hollywood came calling, and Redmayne has toiled steadily on both sides of the pond, building a distinguished profile in The Good Shepherd, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Other Boleyn Girl, and The Pillars of the Earth. Redmayne’s star truly ascended when he was cast opposite Michelle Williams in My Week with Marilyn, then landed the role of Marius in Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables. With his performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything already generating awards buzz, Redmayne looks primed to catapult into the stratosphere.
