The People Who Really Matter - Eddie's current position is No. 13
Everyone's in love with Old Etonian Eddie who, in turn, is in love with Hannah Bagshawe (they got married at Babington House in December 2014 and are expecting their first child).
He played Angel Clare in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Stephen Wraysford, the lovestruck lieutenant, in Birdsong and his freckled cheekbones alone were probably enough to land him a campaign with Burberry. Scooped an Oscar for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, and has another nod this year for The Danish Girl. Seriously. He has a terrible memory and says his greatest acting feat was doing work experience in a bank, 'having to pretend I knew what a share was when I didn't have a clue'.
