Eddie on his old school days in Great British Education Magazine 2020 edition

Eddie Redmayne is featured in the Great British Education Magazine 2020 edition.
In the interview, he shares his memories of his time at ETON and Cambridge.
(pages 28-30)

"I had the greatest drama teacher I could ever have wished for in
Simon Dormandy. He treated us like professionals and that kind of
respect and guidance makes you want to take things seriously..." 

"Education, for me, became the platform for everything in
adult life... while that passion, interest, confidence, and
desire to move into drama partly came from inside, it was
also from the influences I had around me at school."

With Hannah at the LFF premiere of The Aeronauts and with Felicity Jones and
Stephen & Jane Hawking at the premiere of The Theory of Everything in London.

 “Good schooling gives you the desire to hunt out,
learn and embrace everything that’s around you.”

" provides you with a vital platform
for what you choose to build on top."

BTS videos for The Trial of the Chicago 7 from Netflix Film Club

"The Trial of the Chicago 7 is not a documentary, it's a painting
where journalism is a photograph. It's not as much about 1968
as it is about today." - Aaron Sorkin

Pete Hammond interviewed writer-director Aaron Sorkin and actors
Eddie Redmayne, Sacha Baron Cohen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II,
and Jeremy Strong at Deadline’s Contenders Film
awards-season event on Saturday, 23rd January 2021.

In the video below you can watch the part of the interview when
Eddie was asked about his approach of playing Tom Hayden. 
The video is edited, zooming on Eddie's part of the screen.

For Eddie Redmayne, who plays Hayden, it was all on the page. “Hayden
had an extraordinary facility with speech, but with a quiet integrity that
drew people toward him,” the actor said of the leader of the protests.

Eddie on being cast in The Trial Of The Chicago 7: "It was genuinely
one of those moments when the script arrived that it sort of felt
too good to be true. And I kind of said yes before reading the thing."

"There’s a sort of sadness, I found, when the words are that good.
There was a slight desperation that, when the words are that good,
they can be heaved around. They can be played in a thousand
different ways ...
I found this very unique feeling on “Chicago 7,” going home at
night. “Oh, I don’t get to say those again.” And the weird thing
with jobs, you find that years later, occasionally, walking down
the street, and the odd line from something will have remained.
It tends to be something that gave you joy in the playing of it."


Eddie and Jamie were photographed by Zoe McConnell.

30th Gotham Awards Ensemble Tribute awarded to the cast of The Trial of the Chicago 7

Congratulations to the cast of THE TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 for
IFP’s inaugural Gotham Awards Ensemble Tribute!

In a newly created honor, the 30th IFP Gotham Awards saluted
The Trial of the Chicago 7 with the Ensemble Tribute.
The show was streamed live from Ciprian Wall Street tonight
(January 11, 2021).

The cast including Eddie Redmayne, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeremy Strong, and
Sacha Baron Cohen recorded a message cut together from various locations.

“Half a century after the events of ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7,’ peaceful
protestors are again being met with tear gas…political gridlocks continue
to plague our own leaders,
 The echoes have been unmistakable, but if nothing else, they remind
us of the work that still has to be done in bridging the divide.

‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ happened then but it’s happening
now and it’s destined to keep happening until America lives up
to its ideal of liberty and justice for all.” - Video here

The live stream also included a BTS video with cast interviews,
the same that Netflix shared recently - the video is here.
