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.
