Eddie Redmayne As Transgender Pioneer Lili Elbe in His Upcoming The Danish Girl

Eddie Redmayne already won one Oscar for starring in a high-profile biopic as Stephen Hawking, so why not do another? Next he’ll play Lili Elbe, who’s known for being one of the first transgender women to undergo successful sex-reassignment surgery, in 2016’s The Danish Girl. Of the film, Redmayne recently told The Daily Mail, “I think it’s the most sensitive role I have played.” See the first photo of Redmayne as Elbe below.
