Eddie Redmayne: ‘I hope The Danish Girl makes me an ally to the trans community’

“It’s been 15 years in the making and has come out at time when there has been such a shift in these issues coming to the mainstream.

The story is so beautiful and the people from the trans community I met in preparing for the part were incredibly generous. It has been a privilege and, while not in any way talking for the community, I’m trying to learn to be an ally.”

— Eddie Redmayne, racking up scores of excellent reviews and best actor award nominations for his role as trans pioneer Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl, speaking about the film on The Graham Norton Show
