On my radar
Eddie Redmayne has been a busy man in the last year. Firstly, he's the face for reknowned designer Burberry, making women all over the world weak at the knees as they set eyes on those perfectly chisled cheekbones. He featured in the November success 'My week with Marylin' alongside Michelle Williams, where he plays an inexperienced runner who finds himself caught up in a twisted and tangled love affair with one of the worlds biggest stars. You also may have seen him in Michael Granage's final production for the Donmar Warehouse, where he portrays the young English ruler, Richard II. What has caught my attention the most is his recent role as Stephen Wraysford in the BBC drama adaptation of 'Birdsong'. It's cinematography is stunning, not to mention the costumes and cast. Clemence Poesy is the extremely lucky lady who plays Redmayne's love interest in the two-part series, and the natural on screen chemistry shines through - making for a beautiful, emotive and tragic story.
