Eddie Redmayne movies: 11 greatest films ranked from worst to best

Eddie Redmayne has packed a lot of accomplishments into his first 40 years, including both an Oscar win as Best Actor for “The Theory of Everything” and a Tony win as Best Featured Actor in a Play for “Red.”

Redmanye was born in London and did quite well in school, well enough to secure a place at Cambridge for his University years. He would earn a degree in art history at the esteemed college. Redmayne then took a step away from academics and began a career in modeling. While he met with a certain degree of success in that profession acting had always been his first love and would eventually turn that into his career.

He found success on the British stage quite early and at age 22 he won a number of London newcomer awards for his performance in Edward Albee‘s “The Goat or Who is Sylvia.” As he was beginning to appear in film and television roles he scored another huge success in London in the play “Red” which won him an Olivier Award as Best Supporting Actor in a Play.

He would go on to repeat that role on Broadway where as mentioned he received a Tony Award. Shortly after that Redmayne would receive increasingly larger roles in films culminating in an Oscar only four years after his Tony Award.
