I have add photos from last night’s 88th Annual Academy Awards & Vanity Fair Oscar Party 2016 to the gallry.
Over the weekend Eddie was at the EE British Academy Film Awards I have some photos from the event.
Eddie Redmayne’s mind was positively blown by J.K. Rowling’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” screenplay.
“For me, it was a question of whether I’d get the gig. When I read J.K. Rowling’s script, I just had my mind blown,” Redmayne, 34, told Pottermore. “I was so excited by it. The amazing thing was that I found it funny, I found it a thriller, I found it romantic. At the end, I was deeply moved by it.”
Redmayne was also impressed by “Fantastic Beasts” director David Yates. “David has such a lovely manner and this incredible kindness to him,” the actor said. “There was no question I wanted to do this movie.”
In the film, Redmayne plays writer and magizoologist Newt Scamander, who accidently unleashes a briefcase full of “fantastic beasts” upon 1920’s New York City.
“So when David and I had our first meeting about this movie I had this case with me,” Redmayne said. “We met in a pub in Soho and sat down by a roaring fire. As he started telling me about Newt and the basic plot of this film — which included Newt having a magic case — I said, ‘I promise I didn’t know about Newt’s case. I didn’t bring this as some sort of weird method audition — like, don’t worry David, I come with my own case!’ And I’m afraid it’s still here, it’s still got my life in it. Not quite as much as Newt has in his case, though…”
Redmayne has been nominated for an Academy Award for his role as transgender icon Lili Elbe in “The Danish Girl.” Already an Oscar winner for last year’s “The Theory of Everything,” Redmayne, this year, hopes for a more relaxing ceremony.
“Last year was like being hit by a bulldozer and it’s such a frenzy of emotions that you try to remain open enough to enjoy it and remember it,” he recently told The Telegraph. “You think of it as an evening event but it takes such a long time, I will have a calm day.”
“Fantastic Beasts” hits theaters Nov. 18.
