On Tuesday 3 December Eddie Redmayne will participate in an intimate ‘Academy Circle’ event, hosted by Hong Kong actress and presenter Lisa S, at The Peninsula Hong Kong for local supporters of BAFTA’s mission in Asia. The following day, Wednesday 4 December, he will participate in an acting masterclass with students at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
This is why he cancelled his participation in the Rainbow Trust Carol Concert.
Eddie spends a few days in Hong Kong, so he can meet his brother James, who currently lives there.

BAFTA identifies, nurtures and supports the next generation of talent through its year-round programme of learning events, alongside its internationally-renowned annual award ceremonies celebrating excellence in film, television and games. The learning programme includes masterclasses, lectures with established practitioners, ‘new talent’ initiatives and over 250 events across the UK and the USA giving the public access to a wealth of knowledge and advice. Alongside an extensive collection of online resources on BAFTA Guru, BAFTA’s online learning channel, the organisation has in recent years created one of the most developed and highly-regarded learning programmes for film, television and games in the world.
