Q1: How did you pick up on Hawking's mannerisms? Do you relate to him on an emotional level?

Q2: Have you had the chance to meet Stephen Hawking? (and what was it like?)
A2: He came to set. It was intimidating but he is so funny, witty and has a glint in his eye. I relaxed after a while.

Q3: What was the most challenging part of becoming Stephen Hawking for the film?
A3: Depicting the various stages of his ALS. It's a brutal & complicated disease

Q4: How do you think this film & Hawking could impact younger people?
A4: It teaches us to live life fully, passionately, to ask big ?s and as Hawking said "be curious".

Q5: Was it more challenging to play Marius and do all the singing or to play Stephen Hawking?A5: Hawking

Q6: What was the most emotional scene to film in #TheTheoryOfEverything?A6: There's a scene where Stephen & Jane part ways. For Felicity & I, that was a pretty intense day.

...You wanted to know all about his role in the film, and the actor took to Twitter to dish on everything from Stephen Hawking and science to The Simpsons and his time at the University of Cambridge...The entire chat is here.

Q1: What was most challenging about playing an actual living person?
A1: Knowing they are going to be the ultimate critic. You don't want to get it wrong.

Q2: Which one is harder: playing Stephen Hawking vs wedding dance with Cosette in Les Miz? :)
A2: The wedding dance was pretty hardcore but Hawking wins by a whisker.

Q3: What is your own "theory of everything"? Is there any theory that you believe in as an actor?
A3: Trying to find a theory for acting is impossible for me. It's a crapshoot. It involves massives of luck.

Q4: When you acting Mr. Hawking, did you totally try to be him or just express his character in you?
A4: I could never truly become Stephen Hawking. You do research and then you bring it back to what you know.
