Born on January 6th, 1982, actor Eddie Redmayne had a love of acting from a young age, learning from Les Miserable at age 7, often singing songs from the play with his older brothers. In his late teenage years, he auditioned and received a role in the theater production of Oliver. When attending Cambridge University, he studied art history, and he landed a role in the 2002 production of Twelfth Night.

After earning a degree, he waited for a year to see if he could achieve success as an actor.

Later, after making this decision, he landed roles in movies like The Goat, Who Is Sylvia?, and The Good Shepherd, starring Robert Di Niro and Angelina Jolie. By taking all these roles, he gained popularity in Hollywood, accepting any roles that he would enjoy.

In 2012, Redmayne fulfilled a childhood dream by landing a role in the Hollywood production of Les Miserable, playing Marius, a man who falls in love with a woman, Cosette, while also having an idealistic revolution for France. Later, he earned his Oscar winning role in The Theory of Everything, playing Stephen Hawking and showing the love story between his character and his first wife Jane Hawking. After earning the award, he obtained many roles the following years, such as Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, and Balem Abrasax in Jupiter Ascending.

Most recently, Redmayne received the role in the new Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in 2016. This made Redmayne’s acting horizon grow bigger, showing that not only that he could act in drama, but also adventure films.

In 2014, Redmayne wedded his longtime girlfriend, Hannah Bagshawe. Two years later, they welcomed a little baby girl, Iris Mary, on June 15th, 2016.
