Oscar winning actor Eddie Redmayne revealed that he realised he was getting famous when commuters tried to secretly take photos of him on the tube.

Redmayne, 33 – who won an Oscar last month for his role as Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything – told GQ magazine: “In London, the shift was just going on the underground and people pretending to be texting but then taking photos. But it’s never been extreme.”

Talking about his new role as Danish painter Lili Elbe (previously Einar Wegner) – one of the world’s first known successful recipients of sex reassignment surgery – he said: “I was actually offered The Danish Girl before Hawking.

“People go, ‘Oh are you doing this transformative thing?’ It’s not a concerted choice. I think it will be a unique experience.”

To get in character for the film, which will track the journey of Wegener’s transition from posing in women’s clothes for his wife Gerda to undergoing surgery to become a woman, Redmayne sought the advice of transgender director Lana Wachowski.

“There is so much I need to investigate,” he said. “It’s a very famous story within the trans community.”

On choosing which roles to play, Redmayne – who married his sweetheart Hannah Bagshawe in December – said: “If your dream is to tell stories, interesting stories, play interesting people, then I have been incredibly lucky to portray Stephen and Lili. They are both extraordinary people and as an actor it doesn’t get better than that.”
