Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander are what I like to call “Actors’ Actors.” You know, like a “man’s man” sort of thing. Yes? No? Okay, so when an actor views another actor as a super actor, then there is this mutual respect of the craft which results in major admiration towards the super actor. Not only are Redmayne and Vikander actors’ actors, but they are also quite beloved by the average film watcher. There is no denying that Redmayne and Vikander sparkle on film together, and even when they each stand alone.
Last night, the two said they’ve been running around like crazy attending screenings followed by Q&A for their film The Danish Girl. When they attended last night’s SAG-AFTRA Foundation screening/Q&A at the Landmark West L.A., they were quite winded and mentioned that we were their last audience to visit on their tour.
In the video I captured, you will see that Redmayne talks about an ‘intimate photo’ of himself dressed as TDG character Lily that was leaked to the public before the film’s release. He then talks about the research he did in the trans community for the role of Lily. Finally, Vikander talks about what it was like not being a known actress and everyone asking where her so-called films can be seen (then she comes out with Ex Machina boom! Now The Danish Girl boom!). See the video below:
