Eddie Redmayne Spotted During Break from Filming 'Fantastic Beasts 3'

Eddie Redmayne wears a stylish outfit while stepping out for some shopping on Wednesday (February 24) in London, England.

The 39-year-old Oscar-winning actor was spotted during a break from filming the upcoming third Fantastic Beasts movie, which was shut down due to a crew member testing positive for COVID-19.

It was announced that production was paused on February 4.

“A team member from Fantastic Beasts 3 has tested positive for COVID-19,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson told Variety. “The diagnosis was confirmed as a result of required and ongoing testing that all production employees receive, and the team member is currently in isolation.

Former Roomies Jamie Dornan & Eddie Redmayne Laugh About Living Together & Their Failed Auditions: 'There Was Just So Much Failure'

“We’ve known each other forever and been best friends for 15-plus years. We lived together in L.A.,” Jamie recalled.

“You’re aging pretty well, mate,” added Eddie.

“We look better than we did when we met, probably, in many ways. Some pretty terrible hair going on. I remember that it was 2009, because — let’s set the scene up a little bit. We weren’t working a great deal,” Jamie said.

“At all. At all,” Eddie added.

“OK, we weren’t working at all. We’re going up for a lot of stuff in L.A., a lot of the same stuff sometimes, which was depressing. I think we lived together for about three months. And there was so little to do — if we didn’t have an audition. The reason I remember it was one day we went to a Pottery Barn or something, and…we made some crockery. We made plates and clay pots, and I remember we wrote the names of all these actors who were our gang. Everyone has done pretty good. You’ve got an Academy Award. I mean, it’s kind of insane,” Jamie said.

“I’m slightly embarrassed you’re putting that out into the public arena, given I used to tell my parents that I was going to L.A. in January to endlessly slave away to try to get work. You and Andrew Garfield and I were texting, trying to remember what those things were. And one of them was BioShock [a movie based on a video game, which never got made]. You remember BioShock? We were furious with each other as we were going through it, and competing for the same role. I remember auditioning for 10,000 BC, which involved being topless, running around, like in Egypt. I mean, look at me. I’m sort of pallid, white, moley. I was always two hours early or an hour late to auditions, endlessly running these lines. But it was great in the sense that you got to try everything and fail hard,” Eddie went on to say.

“Totally. There was just so much failure. I just remember your rental car — the foot area of the front passenger seat was a sea of failed audition sides. You were just shucking them down there after coming out of one of those auditions, going, ‘That’s another fail,’” Jamie said.

'Fantastic Beasts 3' Moves to 2022, New Details About Johnny Depp's Forced Resignation Revealed

The third Fantastic Beasts movie has been moved from November 2021 to July 22, 2022 amid the news that Johnny Depp would be recast after he was forced to resign from the movie.

THR is now shedding light on what happened, and everything was “prompted by a U.K. judge dismissing Depp’s defamation claims,” which saw the UK newspaper The Sun calling Depp a “wife beater.” The site added that, “the judge’s ruling makes it a lot easier for news outlets to use similar depictions when referring to Depp’s stormy two-year marriage to actress Amber Heard, creating a PR headache for the studio.”

The studio allegedly wanted to wait until the trial’s decision was handed down before making their final call.

No word yet on who will play the role of Grindelwald in the third film at this time.

'The Trial of the Chicago 7' Will Submit All Actors Into the Same Category at 2021 Oscars

The entire cast of the movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 will be competing in the Best Supporting Actor category at the Oscars next year.

The movie, which was written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, features 12 actors billed above the title and it’s definitely an ensemble piece. Many expected that Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne would be campaigned as lead actors while the rest of the cast would be in the supporting category.

Now, it’s been confirmed by THR that all actors will be campaigned in the supporting category. Another time that this has happened recently was with the movie Spotlight, which went on to win Best Picture.

The cast of the film includes, in alphabetical order, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sacha Baron Cohen, Danny Flaherty, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Keaton, Frank Langella, John Caroll Lynch, Eddie Redmayne, Noah Robbins, Mark Rylance, Alex Sharp, and Jeremy Strong.

Many believe that the actors with the best chance at landing a nomination are Abdul-Mateen II, Cohen, and former winner Rylance.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 is now streaming on Netflix.

Eddie Redmayne Doesn't Support J.K. Rowling's Anti-Trans Comments, But Calls 'Vitriol' Towards Her 'Absolutely Disgusting'

Eddie Redmayne is speaking out about the backlash that “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling has received after she made anti-trans comments on social media.

The author has essentially been “canceled” by her fans this summer for the hurtful and harmful comments that she has made about the transgender community. Eddie previously spoke out to express that he supports the trans community and he disagrees with Jo‘s comments.

In a new interview with the Daily Mail, Eddie said that he was alarmed by the “vitriol” sent to Rowling, which he said was “absolutely disgusting.” He did note that he found the insults being sent to trans people on social media to be “equally disgusting.”

“Similarly, there continues to be a hideous torrent of abuse towards trans people online and out in the world that is devastating,” Eddie said.

Eddie played a transgender woman in the movie The Danish Girl and he received an Oscar nomination for his performance. He says he has many “trans friends and colleagues” who are “having their human rights challenged around the world and facing discrimination on a daily basis.”

After a six-month break due to the pandemic, Eddie is now back at work on the third Fantastic Beasts movie, which Rowling wrote.
