Eddie was raised in London alongside his two brothers, by their father Richard Redmayne who’s a businessman, and mother Patricia (nee Burke) who’s the owner of a relocation business. Eddie studied at Eaton House prior to progressing to St Paul’s Juniors on a scholarship; he was quite young when he fell in love with acting, and just 16 when he made his TV series debut, playing John Hardy in the 1998 episode “Bunnies in the Bathroom” of the adventure “Animal Ark”. Eddie had no roles in the following five years, focusing on his education.

He matriculated from the private Eton College in 2000, and continued his education at Trinity College, Cambridge, from which he graduated with honours in 2003.

One of his early breakthroughs came with the 2007 historical movie “Elizabeth: The Golden Age”, in which he portrayed Thomas Babington, a young Englishman caught in the political scene of the Elizabethan era. Although the film received mixed reviews, Eddie’s performance stood out, showcasing his ability to act well even alongside famous actors such as Cate Blanchett and Clive Owen.

In 2011, Eddie ventured into the realm of epic fantasy with his playing of Marius Pontmercy in “Les Misérables”; the film adaptation of the evergreen musical by Victor Hugo featured an ensemble cast that included Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe. Eddie’s portrayal of an idealistic revolutionary was met with critical acclaim, and his powerful singing of the song “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables” showcased his talents beyond traditional acting.

One of Eddie’s most notable performances was in the 2012 biographical movie “My Week with Marilyn”, in which he played Colin Clark, a young man who documents his experiences working with Marilyn Monroe (played by Michelle Williams) during the production of “The Prince and the Showgirl”.

One of the most important moments in Eddie’s career occurred in 2014, when he took on the role of the charming and eccentric wizard Newt Scamander in “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. This film, set in J. K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, marked Eddie’s foray into the realm of blockbusters; his portrayal of a magizoologist resonated with audiences, and he reprised the role in the two sequels which were as popular as the first film.

In 2015, Eddie took on the rather tricky role as Lili Elbe in “The Danish Girl”, a groundbreaking film that explored the life of one of the first individuals to undergo gender change surgery. His portrayal of Elbe, a transgender woman, earned him critical acclaim and nominations for various awards, including an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

The 2019 biographical film “The Aeronauts” saw Eddie reunite with his “The Theory of Everything” co-star Felicity Jones. Set in the 19th century, the film follows the story of a pilot and a scientist attempting to fly higher in a gas balloon than anyone had before.

The year 2020 saw Eddie play Ladybird in an episode of the comedy mini-series “James and the Giant Peach with Taika and Friends”, and the same year saw him portray one of the main characters Tom Hayden in the critically acclaimed historical thriller film “The Trial of the Chicago 7”, which Aaron Sorkin wrote and directed, and which also starred Sacha Baron Cohen and Alex Sharp. It follows the seven people who were put on trial following the uprising at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, and the film won 57 of its 149 award nominations, including six Oscar nominations.

Most recently, in 2022, Eddie starred as Charlie Cullen in the popular biographical crime movie “The Good Nurse”, directed by Tobias Lindhold, and which also starred Denise Pillott and Jessica Chastain. It tells the story of a caregiver who was accused of being involved in the deaths of hundreds of hospital patients – the movie won three of its 11 award nominations.

In 2015, Eddie was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Queen Elizabeth 11

He’s a philanthropist, and has been a patron of the Motor Neurone Disease Association since 2015.
