Kate, in Your Conversation with Eddie Redmayne you write about Eddie’s publicist’s assistant who cantacted you - was it Hannah?

No, as far as I understand, she was never his publicist. :)

Eddie doesn't have instagram, does he? is there any official accounts on social media, where we can be sure it's him? ;)

No, he doesn’t have any social media accounts.

We always have that feeling of euphoria [when we get a role], followed by a few days later of, ‘Oh, I’ve actually got to do it.’ In this case, the euphoria lasted under a millisecond [after I hung up the phone], followed by deep, terrifying, overwhelming fear. But [co-star and friend] Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) said to me, when he heard I got the part, ‘The great thing about this job is that it’s one that you can do nothing but give 3,000 percent. That’s not an option.’ And that was totally true.

But it was relative unknown Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) who truly astonished audiences at the 39th annual Toronto Film Festival with his mesmerizing performance as theoretical physicist and motor neuron-disease sufferer Stephen Hawking in James Marsh’s (Man on Wire) feature debut Theory of Everything.

The performance generated an extended standing ovation and immediate Oscar talk for the 32-year old British actor. Some prognosticators even have him at the top of the heap of an already very crowded list of pedigreed actors including Michael Keaton (Birdman), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) and Steve Carell (Foxcatcher).

It’s an auspicious place to be for Redmayne, who spent six months researching the role and working with a choreographer to recreate Hawking’s muscular degeneration. But the actor said he’s avoiding all kinds of chatter, finding satisfaction in the fact that Hawking and his ex-wife Jane Hawking (née Wilde) liked the film enough to lend both Hawking’s actual computerized voice to it and the medal he received from the queen.

“The greatest moment of relief for me was when Stephen saw the film and enjoyed it,” says Redmayne, the morning after the film’s debut. “It’s wonderful if anything else comes along, but I’m trying not to read stuff because I’ll end up having a meltdown.”
