If you have studied the biography of Eddie Redmayne or have watched at least one of Eddie Redmayne films, for sure, you will tell, that his way to success used to be extremely easy. This tall thin man with clever eyes doesn’t look like a star. He does not have impressive muscles or indescribably handsome appearance. His biography is not full of love affairs with the most beautiful women in Hollywood, or at least with the dirty facts such as being arrested for driving under the influence. Nevertheless alcohol has helped him once to make a significant step in his career. But let’s start from the very beginning.
Eddie Redmayne was born in a rich family on the 6th of January, 1982. His father, a successful banker and his mother, a brilliant business lady, had three sons. From the very beginning the glorious future was guaranteed to all of them but they were supposed to become successful businessmen too. Parents decided to send the boys to Eton – the famous English college, where the richest and noblest Englishmen got their education. At Eton Eddie got acquainted with Prince William. They were classmates, but not friends. Tall and too slim teenager Redmayne used to be too shy to make friendship with such a famous classmate. Besides the teenager was so fond of the theater, that he had no time to make friends with the other classmates too.
The future star fell in love with the theater art at age of 8, when the boy had visited the theater with his parents. “Midsummer Night’s Dream” of Shakespeare had impressed the child so much, that Eddie decided to become an actor. But don’t think that everything was so easy. The sea of disappointments and doubts was on the way of Eddie to his success.
Eddie started playing at the college theater at Eton and made progress there. Simon Dormandy, the head of Eton Theater, recommended a prospective student to the casting director of “Globe”. Eddie went to the casting, being drunk. Eddie got the call from Dormandy during the birthday party. But the actor says that he managed to get the role only because of that drunken state – he felt no fear! Thereafter, the professional way of Eddie was already defined. However, the actor doubted, if he was talented. And, according to his own words, only after the performance in Liverpool (“Master Harold and the Boys”), he realized that he could become a professional actor.
