You Won’t Believe These 7 Roles Eddie Redmayne Tried & Failed to Land

By  | 

We love Eddie Redmayne in every role he plays. Not only can he act with the best of ’em (he won a freakin’ Oscar for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything), but he also proved his singing chops as Marius in Les Miserablés. We told you — the 36-year-old is SUPER talented.

However, it has not always been smooth sailing for the Academy Award-winner. Throughout his lengthy career, Eddie has auditioned for many roles that he really wanted, but ended up not landing in the end. In fact, he has spoken publicly about some particularly embarrassing auditions he’s experienced. It is clear, however, that the Brit refuses to let rejection stop him, which is a quality we should all strive to achieve.
