Eddie Redmayne Chased Down 'Theory of Everything' Director
Eddie Redmayne keeps it dapper while attending the ALS Association Greater New York Chapter’s 2014 Lou Gehrig Sports Awards Benefit at Marriott Marquis Hotel on Tuesday evening (November 4) in New York City.
The 32-year-old actor was joined by retired Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.
“I read the script and it totally subverted my expectations of what it was,” Eddie recently told Screencrush.com about his new film Theory of Everything. “And then asked to meet James Marsh. And I loved the idea that he was the director directing it … then I just really chased it down.”
He explained, “Trying to persuade people. So I had a phone call with James who was in Copenhagen, then he came to London and we went for a drink. We share a sensibility, I think, that fear drives us. But when you’re in that chasing phase trying to get a part, you’re never thinking about whether you can do it.”
