The 32-year-old actor is gearing up for the release of his new film The Theory of Everything, in which he gives a star-making performance that has landed him at the front of the Oscar race this year.
Eddie stars as the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who received an earth-shattering ALS diagnosis at 21 years of age and still embarked on a mission of breaking new ground in medicine and science despite the odds. Eddie completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge over the summer alongside his pal Jamie Dornan – watch their joint challenge video in case you missed it!
During our interview with Eddie, he talked about his favorite moment from the whole process. “The first was meeting Stephen himself. Once I got over my debilitating nerves it was wonderful. He is geniusly funny,” Eddie said.
Best known for his work in the movie musical Les Miserables and the biopic My Week With Marilyn, Eddie is also an accomplished stage actor. He received a Tony Award for his work in the play Red back in 2010.
