Eddie on his Oscar night - News: Nov.21. TDG LA premiere - Nov.18. 'First look' on HBO

 My mosaic from TToE captures and set photos (click for full size) These are cropped images 
from the picture I made and sent to Eddie after he won the Best Actor Oscar.
I made this with the AndreaMosaic program - original photo is here (x)

“(Brie) Larson seems to be a natural at this sort of thing, just as Eddie Redmayne was last season. He did so many of these meet and greets over the six month awards season he proved impossible to beat (of course the brilliant performance helped too) even as Michael Keaton came on strong towards the end. Redmayne is in contention again this year with the November 27 release of The Danish Girl , but in contrast to his tireless work on the circuit last year, he barely will be touching down in Los Angeles as he is tied up working on JK Rowling’s new Warner Bros film, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. He will make it here briefly for the film’s November 21 premiere (a Saturday in part to accomodate his crazy schedule). Last year he went back and forth between prepping and shooting Danish Girl and promoting The Theory Of Everything eventually leading to Oscar, though he had to get on a plane the next day back to The Danish Girl set. He does remember that night itself as he told me when he spoke to me from London over the weekend. ‘I’ll never forget the moment when my name was called. You’re so adrenaline-fueled, and then you’re going straight into a press conference, and then you basically spend five hours with people asking how you’re feeling,’ he recalled. ‘Rationally you can’t take anything in. You’re just trying not to have sensory overload. It was only about four or five in the morning when we were back in the Sunset Tower overlooking Sunset Boulevard with about seven friends, and my wife Hannah and I , and the sun rising at that moment. That was the moment I will never ever forget. It was the moment I finally got to breathe.’ “So remember that for those Oscar hopefuls being shepherded from one event to the next, your next chance to breathe may sometime at the end of February. Enjoy.”

A nice comment on the lack of Oscar campaign from Twitter:

☆☆☆☆☆ “The care that Redmayne put into translating Lili’s story to the big screen
is clear in every moment of his performance.” - Esther Zuckerman, Refinery29 (x) via

"Redmayne gives the greatest performance of his career"

News (x) via: Finally, a preview! HBO will air a “First Look” on The Danish Girl on Nov. 18,
a week before the film’s U.S. launch in New York and Los Angeles. HBO airs these specials with
behind-the-scenes footage and interviews provided by studios and they run from about 15-30 min.

Ian McKellen: 
Eddie Redmayne’s inspiration, tormentor. 
Redmayne: ‘What I found is that I got into Shakespeare when I saw a film version of it with Gandalf playing Richard III, and that was when I first got really interested in theatre and in film’ (x)
McKellen: “I have the distinction of not giving Eddie Redmayne his first film role. He auditioned for one of the boys in “Richard III” (1996), and he didn’t get the part. Every time I see him, he teases, ‘You’re the guy who didn’t give me my first job’!” (x) via

Eddie's first TV appearance was much earlyer than we knew, long before his role in Animal Ark, even earlier than his West End debut in 'Oliver'. He appeard in a children's TV program at age 8. Timmy Mallett was the presenter of the show. It's a pity we don't have a video or at least a picture about the cute little Eddie.

Commute between London-Liverpool on trains - Fantastic beasts news

Ryan Kenny (x): Thanks for the pic hope you enjoyed Liverpool
Eddie Redmayne on his commute between London-Liverpool on @virgin_trains
for Fantastic Beasts location filming. (Thanks Tumblr olly-77 for the find) via spoke to Redmayne on Sunday for his upcoming film The Danish Girl, in which he plays Danish painter Einar Wegener who became the first person to undergo gender confirmation surgery as the inspirational Lili Elbe, and he spoke to us briefly about coming Fantastic Beasts.
As far as doing research, Redmayne was allowed an audience with Britain’s literary queen. “When I was prepping, I met J.K. Rowling and what’s so amazing is that her imagination is so full and thorough–it’s so encyclopedic of her world–we had an hour together and I sort of asked her about 800 questions so that was a lot of my wonderful research.”
“He’s wonderful,” Redmayne said glowingly about director David Yates, who directed the second half of the “Harry Potter” films. “Even though there’s a scale to these films that could be intimidating, he has such a kindness but an absolutely brilliant that it feels very intimate, and he’s got such a wonderful, eclectic cast. Hopefully, it will be good.”
Redmayne took a break from the movie to do the junket for The Danish Girl in London, but he’s back to Liverpool this week to presumably do some location shooting.
You can look for our full interview with Eddie as well as his director Tom Hopper before The Danish Girl is released by Focus Features on November 27.

Video: HeyUGuys Colin Farrell interview (Lobster)
Q: What are you working on next?
Colin Farrell: Oh, I’m doing a thing in town now called Fantastic Beasts. I’ll be doing that until January.
Q: Have you been researching the Harry Potter books for that?
Colin Farrell: No, I don’t’ know the books, but I’ve seen all the films. But no, it’s a standalone thing. 
It’s all an individual piece...

Q: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them … how do you fit into that tale?
Colin Farrell: No idea. I’ve only shot a few days. But what I’ve seen so far, the world is extraordinary in the sets and the costumes and the creatures that they’re gonna be designing that exist within the world. It’s a pretty beautiful world to just try and slot yourself into.
Q: So that’s ongoing now?
CF: That’s ongoing now. They’re shooting out at Leavesden. Yeah, they’ve been there for a couple of months...


Video: Colin Farrell does mention how the sets are “extraordinary” and that having a wand is “interesting“…
"It’s a big, big thing. They’ve built the most extraordinary set: a block and a half of New York in the 1920s. It’s gorgeous. Trams and everything. Magic.
When they shot the Harry Potters they had a whole network of hangars in Leavesden, about an hour outside London. You walk on to set, and you feel like a very small spoke on a very big wheel. The Lobster cost as much as the catering budget." (x)

 a handful of extras with speaking parts were cast last week. Actors Attila G. Kerekes and Richard Douglas 
have been cast as a New York citizen and a gentleman, respectively. Meanwhile, Kirsty Grace, has been 
cast as a jazz girl, another speaking part. Kirsty’s previous work includes work as a stunt double. (x)

J.K. Rowling herself picked Liverpool for the filming:
"The people in charge of choosing the locations had photographs of all the possible locations up on a huge board.
And when JK Rowling walked in she picked out Liverpool as being exactly what she wanted." (x)
Don’t forget to catch up on everything that happened in Liverpool this week with our previous posts here and here. The pictures taken include glimpses of 1920s cars, extras dressed in formal wear, and even a protest taking place on the steps of St. George’s. An American flag was glimpsed on set, too.(x)

TDG promo continues in London - press junket and private screening with Q+A

The one and only Eddie Redmayne (x)

The beautiful Alicia Vikander (x) and director Tom Hooper (x)

bespokeredmayne: The good news: There are some lovely new Eddie Redmayne photos available (in his teal sweater) today. The bad news: they’re from an agency and pricey, so we’ll have to hope that publications pick them up. (There’s lots of Tom Hooper, too, if you fancy him.) - You can check the samples and purchase photos here

Miles Marlowes: At a Private Screening tonight of THE DANISH GIRL followed by a Q+A with TOM HOOPER, EDDIE REDMAYNE, ALICIA VIKANDER, AMBER HEARD and MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS in Leicester Square.
