When he began signing for cinematic parts, British lead Eddie Redmayne took full advantage of his sweet, open-faced, and congenial appearance, ironically selecting a series of roles that required him to project an undercurrent of intransigent, occasionally pathological emotional extremity blanketed by a cover of innocence. He made his first significant mark in 2006 with two such psychologically demanding roles: that of Alex Forbes, a young murderer cracking under the weight of a severely dysfunctional friendship with his second victim and his own father's mistreatment in the psychological thriller Murderous Intent; and that of Edward Wilson Jr., a CIA suit's son reeling from his father's emotional removal in Robert De Niro's ambitious period drama The Good Shepherd. In 2007, Redmayne waxed equally intense as a young homosexual who commits rueful matricide in Tom Kalin's Savage Grace, and -- on a slightly different note -- donned period costume for a small role in Shekhar Kapur's Elizabeth: The Golden Age. He stayed in his Tudor garb for a small role as Mary Boleyn's husband in The Other Boleyn Girl. In 2011, he played future filmmaker Colin Clark in My Week With Marilyn, chronicling Clark's time as a production assistant on the set of the 1957 film The Prince and the Showgirl. Redmayne next showcased his singing voice as revolutionary Marius in 2012's Les Miserables. He followed that up with a star-making turn playing theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything (2014), a part that earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor. Redmayne had similar success the following year, nabbing another Academy Award nomination for The Danish Girl.

QUOTES FROM Eddie Redmayne CHARACTERS

Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe says: I can feel myself getting better when I listen to your pencil. You've always sketched me better than I was. But what you draw, I become. You made me beautiful. And now you're making me strong. Such power in you.

Stephen Hawking says: Look what we made.

Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe says: I think Lili's thoughts, I dream her dreams. She was always there.

Stephen Hawking says: There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. However bad life may seem, while there is life, there is hope.

Jane Wilde says: So, I take it you've never been to church?

Stephen Hawking says: Once upon a time.

Jane Wilde says: Tempted to convert?

Stephen Hawking says: I have a slight problem with the celestial dictatorship premise.

Stephen Hawking says: There should be no boundaries to human endeavor. We are all different. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope.

Stephen Hawking says: Thank you.

Jane Wilde says: Excuse me, did you say something?

Stephen Hawking says: I said -- thank you.

Marius says: Life without Cosette means nothing

Marius says: Life without Cosette means nothing.

Sir Laurence Olivier says: She's quite wonderful. No training, no craft, no guile, just pure instinct. Astonishing.

Lucy says: Did she break your heart?

Colin Clark says: A little.

Lucy says: Good, it needed breaking.

Colin Clark says: It's agony because he's a great actor who wants to be a film star, and you're a film star who wants to be a great actress. This film won't help either of you.

Eponine says: Hey there Monsieur what's new with you? Plotting to overthrow the state? You still pretending to be poor? Come on, I know your grandpa's rich!

Marius says: Won't take a franc that I've not earned. All of those bridges have been burned.

Eponine says: I like the way you talk Monsieur!

Marius says: I like the way you always tease!

Eponine says: Little he knows. Little he sees.

Gordy says: "This is your fate. Now you gotta play this out till the end or else you're gonna walk around like a ghost the rest of your life."

Gordy says: This is your fate. Now you gotta play this out till the end or else you're gonna walk around like a ghost the rest of your life.

Eponine says: Don't you fret, Monsieur Marius. I don't feel any pain. A little fall of rain can hardly hurt me now. You're here. That's all I need to know. And you will keep me safe, and you will keep me close, and rain will make the flowers grow.

Marius says: But you will live, 'Ponine, dear God above. I could heal your wounds with words of love...

Marius says: But you will live, 'Ponine, dear God above. I could heal your wounds with words of love.

Eponine says: Just hold me now, and let it be. Shelter me, comfort me.

Marius says: Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me, what your sacrifice was for. Empty chairs at empty tables, where my friends will sing no more.

Cosette says: Every day You walk with stronger step You walk with longer step The worst is over

Marius says: Every day I wonder every day Who was it brought me here From the barricade?

Enjolras says: Marius, you're late.

Joly says: What's wrong today? You look as if you've seen a ghost.

Grantaire says: Some wine and say what's going on!

Marius says: A ghost you say... a ghost maybe She was just like a ghost to me One minute there, and she was gone!

Marius says: [about Cosette] Eponine, find her for me!

Eponine says: What will you give me?

Marius says: Anything!

Eponine says: Got you all excited now, but God knows what you see in her! Aren't you all delighted now?

Marius says: [Marius offers her money]

Eponine says: No, I don't want your money, sir.

Marius says: In my life, there is someone who touches my life. Waiting near...

Eponine says: Waiting here...

Marius says: Empty Chairs at Empty Tables

Marius says: Empty chairs at empty tables.

Marius says: There's a grief that can't be spoken. There's a pain goes on and on. Empty chairs at empty tables...now my friends are dead and gone.

Marius says: There's a grief that can't be spoken. There's a pain goes on and on. Empty chairs at empty tables... now my friends are dead and gone.

Marius says: Here they talked of revolution, here it was they lit the flame. Here they sang about tomorrow, and tomorrow never came.

Marius says: A heart full of love.

Marius says: Here they talked of revolution Here it was they lit the flame Here they sang about tomorrow And tomorrow never came

Marius says: Here they talked of revolution. Here it was they lit the flame. Here they sang about 'tomorrow' And tomorrow never came.

Marius says: Who is that girl?

Eponine says: Cosette.

Marius says: Empty Chair at Empty Tables, where my friends will meet no more.

Marilyn Monroe says: Don't forget me.

Colin Clark says: As if I could.

Colin Clark says: Here's what I remember most: her embrace. Her belief in me. And the joy she gave. That was her gift. When I think of her now, I think of that time when a dream came true. And my only talent was not to close my eyes.

Eddie says: "The rich get richer and the poor get the picture."

Eddie says: The rich get richer and the poor get the picture.

Sir Laurence Olivier says: She's quite wonderful. No training, no craft, no guile, just pure instinct. Astonishing.

Colin Clark says: You should tell her that.

Sir Laurence Olivier says: Oh, I will. But she won't believe me. That's probably what makes her great, yet it's certainly what makes her so profoundly unhappy.
