Theory of Evetything - New photos - astonishing transformation

Yesterday evening the Daily Mail published an article about the film with new photos from the set.
The article's title: From Les Mis to Stephen Hawking: The astonishing transformation of Eddie Redmayne
"The man, almost impossible to recognise, is big-screen heart-throb and fashion icon Eddie Redmayne, who has undergone an incredible transformation for his new movie.
In the film, called Theory Of Everything, the Les Miserables star plays the brilliant physicist Stephen Hawking – and on Friday he and the rest of the crew were on the dunes of Camber Sands in East Sussex to film privotal scenes."
"Professor Hawking has reportedly welcomed his casting and has made a series of visits to the film’s sets in Cambridge where the bulk of shooting is taking place."

First look: Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking

Update 22 october 2013: 
Olivia's full report from the set, where she worked as an extra on monday (october 21):

"A very different experience to my time working on Les Miserables but no less special. It was a much more intimate shoot, there were fewer people and it was indoors. Also this time, Eddie was the main focus so I pretty much got to spend around 12 hours of my day staring at him and got paid top dollar for it to boot."
"My goodness guys, I think he’s gonna win an Oscar for this one. Incredible performance. He NAILS IT. The facial expressions, the positioning of his body, the look, everything. When I was watching him in character I felt like it was the real Stephen Hawking in the room. Our boy is working so hard. It looked like it was taking a lot out of him, as soon as we cut you could see his laboured breathing. I just wanted to give him a hug! I am so proud of him and proud to say I’ve been a fan of his for over 5 years now."

This is an interesting and funny compilation about Stephen Hawking. I was thinking about whether to publish it in my blog, finally I decided to do it, because I think it's very witty. I hope you like it.

Stephen Hawking quote: 
"The greatest enemy is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge. "
