Eddie joined Katherine last week to support Spare Hand and NHS

Katherine Waterston @katherinewaterston posted these new photos on Instagram
with the caption: "I adore you, Eddie. Thank you for coming out with me last week
to support @spare_hand. We had a great time working with @royalfreelondonnhs
and their amazing volunteer team making scrubs for the NHS."


One of the volunteers shared this photo on her blog and was like, 
“Eddie Redmayne has come to make scrubs for medical staff.
He was humble as I’ve heard. He was working hard on it, cutting
cloth as he was taught and sometimes with a smile on his face.”

Katherine Waterston and Jude Law are both regular SpareHand volunteers,
and last week Eddie Redmayne joined his Fantastic Beasts co-stars too.

"At the start of the pandemic, I got COVID-19 and was hospitalized here
in London, where I received fantastic treatment from the NHS. While
I was recuperating at home and considering how I might meaningfully
give back, my friend Scott Liddle told me about his idea for SpareHand,
and I immediately jumped on board. It’s been great to be part of SpareHand
and to witness its phenomenal growth in just a couple of months. It’s been
great to see how individuals and charities alike have taken to the service;
to hear them rave about its ease of use is really encouraging. I have always
suspected that there’s a large portion of the population who want to volunteer
but are deterred from doing so because they don’t know how or where or
like me, they have schedules that make it difficult to commit to regular
service – SpareHand solves all these problems." - Katherine Waterston

You can also help SpareHand to match volunteers with charities.


Netflix has secured the global rights to THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7
for an estimated $56M.

The film had been due for domestic release at the end of September.
It now lines up as another potential awards contender for Netflix.
Release date has not been set but it’s likely to be on the platform
before the November election.

A new favorite outtake from the 2018 GQ Germany photoshoot by Giampaolo Sgura

Outtake from the cover shoot via __eddie8oct2018 on IG

I haven't seen this photo before. When I saw it first I immediately thought of
the 2018 GQ photoshoot for the January 2019 issue of GQ Germany, because
his clothes style is similar. It turned out that my guess was right.

Eddie backs the new MND awareness campaign

“The film, through the form of dance, gives you a sense of the brutality
of motor neurone disease. It’s compelling with a clear message,
‘Don’t ignore the problem because there isn’t yet a solution'.
I want as many people as possible to watch and share it, even though
it’s a little uncomfortable, so that understanding of motor neurone disease
will be greater in the future. It has been gifted to the Motor Neurone Disease
Association, a charity which is close to my heart, and it portrays with huge
emotion, the gradual loss of control and the tragic nature of stolen dreams.”
- Eddie Redmayne

Eddie is a patron to the MND Association, he supports the charity
since he played Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.
Recently he  attended the first-ever online meeting of the
All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on MND to discuss
the impact of COVID-19 on the MND community.
