my favorites and I was excited when it was adapted on TV screen. Here are some screencaps (some of them are cropped) about Jack's work as a stonemason (sculptor). Screencaps source: Eddie Redmayne Spain galeria

And that’s about all the effort I’m willing to put in trying to disguise this post for what it really is. I just love Eddie Redmayne’s role here so much I just can’t anymore! This is a quick Jack the Builder appreciation post.
So he’s a bastard of a french bard of some sort and a novice nun. He starts off mute or just severely anti-social, having grown up alone in the woods with his mother but as the story progresses you’ll see he has a spine-tingling perfect kind of speaking voice (POTE interview).
Then he apprentices as a stonemason, tries his hand in sculpting and studies geometry and architecture and becomes a masterbuilder. Very smart and talented. Valiant and strong-willed and — I remember joking that in a perfect future I’d be muse to a tall, lean, muscular sculptor with perfect teeth and pelvic lines…let’s just say I’m not quite kidding about that anymore.
