Eddie joined Madame Tussaud's star-studded line-up

Eddie Redmayne was fully involved with the creation of the waxwork, and attended 
a sitting so that the artists could take over 200 measurements. He also donated his 
Gucci suit, worn at the LA premiere of The Danish Girl, to dress up the figure. 

The real Eddie with Alicia Vikander  in LA in Nov.2015 (x) and the wax figure.

The Fantastic Beasts actor is the latest celebrity to be immortalised in the famous
Baker Street attraction. Check the photos video in the Evening Standard article here.

 Eddie said: “It’s been fascinating to be part of the
process and the skill of the artists is astounding.
I felt most sorry for the freckle painter!”
General Manager of Madame Tussauds London,
Edward Fuller, added: “As one of London most
iconic attractions, it felt right that we add one of
London’s most iconic actors, and residents, to the
guest list of our star-studded party room. We are
certainly ready for Eddie, he truly is a fan favourite
and his likeness was one of the most requested
figures in 2017. With award season in full flow it’s
fitting that we invite our guests to mingle with Eddie
and his fellow A-Listers.”

The figure of Eddie Redmayne is the first addition to the famous London attraction in 2018.
 Eddie’s wax figure joins a host of other home-grown British talent such as Benedict Cumberbatch,
Tom Hiddleston and Cara Delevingne. Eddie has been very involved in the creation of the figure,
attending a sitting with the Madame Tussauds’ artists to take over 200 measurements.(OK!)

The video includes interview with Madame Tussauds' PR manager Claire Treacy.
