Actor Eddie Redmayne, who just won an Oscar for ‘The Theory of Everything’, has started his new role – as a transgender woman.
In The Danish Girl, he will play Lili Elbe, an artist who had sexual reassignment surgery in the early 1930s. The film is based on the novel by David Ebershoff.

Late last year Eddie told E! News, “Even though it is period and under completely different circumstances than today, I’m meeting many women from the trans community and hearing their experiences,” he said.
The movie is due to be released in 2016.
