Eddie Redmayne’s acting ambitions
Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne has revealed he did not know he wanted to make acting his career until he was 19.
The 33-year-old star said being on stage was not a life-long dream to make it his profession.
“I enjoyed it growing up but it was only when I was about 18 and did a production of Cabaret at the Edinburgh Festival that I knew I wanted to make acting my career,” he said.
And Eddie still feels like a ‘kid play-acting’ and compared making movies to going on holiday.
“The odd thing about this profession is that you still feel like a kid play-acting. There’s this sense of make-believe and wonder to it that stays with you. Making movies is a bit like being on a summer holiday.”
