Eddie transforms into a woman in new film
The new trailer for The Danish Girl features Oscar-winning Eddie Redmayne transforming into a transgender woman. The teaser begins with Alicia Vikander’s character happily recalling her initial feelings for her handsome husband, Danish artist Einar Wegener (Redmayne), got together. “I was sure. He was so shy... and mysterious,” she gushes to their friends. Then, the mystery is unveiled. “That fact is... I believe that I am a woman,” Redmayne’s character says in the emotional teaser for the film, which is based on the true story of the successful artist. He then seeks to undergo a sex change. “It’s my only hope. This is not my body. I have to let it go.” Redmayne— who won a Best Actor Academy Award this past March for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in 2014’s The Theory of Everything —reunited with his Les Miserables director Tom Hooper.
