In February 2015, when Eddie Redmayne won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, it was the ultimate accolade for an actor who has thrilled audiences since bursting onto the scene a decade earlier. From indie stage productions to Hollywood blockbusters, he has shown himself capable of tackling a huge variety of roles while cultivating a huge and devoted fan following known as "Redmayniacs." This book delves into the past of the hugely popular star, from his wealthy and privileged origins to a tentative entry into the London theater scene to the heights of an international film career. Now married to his childhood sweetheart Hannah Bagshawe, Eddie has also been linked to a string of beautiful women before settling down. This book unearths little known facts about Eddie, such as his acting debut in Animal Ark, his London stage work while at university, when he was discovered by Mark Rylance, with whom he has often been compared, and his groundbreaking work in films that confront explicit taboos. An outstanding member of an exciting new generation of actors, Eddie looks set to dominate the entertainment industry for decades to come.
Emily Herbert is the author of Lady Gaga: Behind the Fame, Michael Jackson: King of Pop, and Robin Williams: When the Laughter Stops 1951–2014.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS Emily Herbert really gives the reader an idea of the craziness of Eddie's hectic life. As my favourite actor, I was excited to see that there was a book about him, and I couldn't put the book down until I read it from front to back. An excellent book.
