Eddie Redmayne Biography

Like many of this brother and sister actors from the United Kingdom, Redmayne is also a stage veteran, having originated roles in contemporary works and taken on iconic roles in classical theatre. American audiences first got a taste of his command of the stage when he costarred with Alfred Molina in the award-winning John Logan play RED for which he took home a Tony Award for Featured Actor in a Play in 2010. Redmayne had originated the role of a young art student at the Donmar Warehouse in London where he won the coveted Olivier Award for best supporting actor. Following his triumph in RED, Redmayne tried his hand at Shakespeare, appearing as in the title role of RICHARD II on the London Stage.


Other stages appearances include his debut as a youngster in the Sam Mendes directed revival of OLIVER!. In 2002, he was a memorable Viola in an all-male TWELFTH NIGHT at The Globe Theatre. Two years later, his performance in Edward Albee's THE GOAT OR WHO IS SYLVIA? earned Redmayne the Evening Standard Outstanding Newcomer Award.
