Eddie's film and play mothers - with photos and videos

Here's the list of the actresses, who played Eddie Redmayne's mother:

The Goat or who is Sylvia (Almeida Theatre 2004) - Stevie -  Kate Fahy
Hecuba played by Clare Higgins in the Euripides tragedy at the Donmar Warehouse in 2004 - Eddie played her son Polydorus.
Clare won her 3rd Laurence Olivier Award for this role. (Wikipedia)

Tony interview (xquestion: Who was the best film mother, Angelina Jolie [in The Good Shepherd] or Julianne Moore [in Savage Grace]?
E.R.: Oh man, there we go! As far as the films are concerned, there’s no question Julianne’s character is the worst mother who ever existed. Barbara Baekeland was an absolute tyrant. Julie came and saw the play (Red on Broadway) the other day, and Matt Damon, who played my dad in The Good Shepherd, came with his lady wife the other night, so it’s been lovely to reconnect with them. Hmm, the best mother? Well, the reason I got cast in Savage Grace is because I have freckles and reddish tinge of hair, which was ideal for Julianne, and the reason I got cast in The Good Shepherd is because I have massive lips. So I have a lot to thank both Angie and Julie for!

The Good Shepherd (2006) - Margaret 'Clover' Russell - Angelina Jolie

Savage Grace (2007) - Barbara Baekeland - Julianne Moore

Tess of the D'Urbervilles (2008) - Mrs. Clare - Jessica Turner 

My Week with Marilyn (2011) - Lady Jane Clark - Geraldine Sommerville
(She played Lily Potter in the Harry Potter movies)

Abigail Cruttenden plays Stephen Hawking's mother E. Isobel Hawking in the Theory of Everything.

Update March 15, 2015 screencap from the film
