Eddie Redmayne Plays Transgender in 'The Danish Girl' (Photo)

Eddie Redmayne‘s first post-Oscar role is a transgender character in the movie The Danish Girl and the first photo has been released!

The project was announced nearly a year ago and it reunites Eddie with his Les Miserables director Tom Hooper.

The film is a “love story about Danish painters Einar Wegener and his wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander). In 1930, Wegener was one of the first men ever to undergo operations to become a woman,” according to Deadline.

Also starring in the movie, due out in theaters in 2016, are Amber Heard and Matthias Schoenaerts.

  • laly

    That’s jessica chastain!!

  • VanityInsecurity

    wow when I first saw this I swore that must be his sister or.. something. ridiculous how feminine he looks.

  • FerCat

    I kinda knew he’d look good as a woman. His features are on the soft/sensitive side.

    Great actor.

  • loraws

    He has beautiful lips.

  • HaylorToU

    Is there anything Eddie CAN’T do? Lol. I smell another Oscar nomination. He is so blessed to have the talent to embody a whole different character than himself. He disappears into a role completely and he doesn’t even practice method acting. This guy is gonna have some impressive resume.

  • cloco

    pretty woman… la la la..

  • HaylorToU

    Is there any talented real transgender out there? I doubt hollywood is so welcoming to them.

  • lillli

    he looks like Evangeline Lily

  • Lindy Lu

    Just because you are Transgender doesn’t mean you have talent. And there aren’t that many transgender actors right now. I’d far rather have Eddie Redmayne and all of his considerable talent playing this role than someone of lesser talent. You don’t get much more talented than this guy!

  • Blah!

    Yes, I thought it was an actress. Jessica C or Julianne Moore.

  • alex

    she’s jessica chastain sister?

  • Nani

    That’s Emma Stone’s twin!

  • smokeskater

    So does that excuse blackface and white-washing as well?

  • your best guest

    He looks really good but I don’t see the Chastain resemblance at all?

  • AMERICA WINS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!
