He may be a Golden Globe winner and an Oscar AND BAFTA nominee (following his stellar performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything), but there was a time when Eddie Redmayne wasn’t quite… Eddie Redmayne. Yes, we’ve all dabbled in this and that, eager to earn a buck while carving out our individual niche. We’ve handed out fliers on busy motorways at 5am, dodging traffic for, well, pittance and we’ve even worked in that Irish leprechaun haven, Carroll’s. The memories. As for Redmayne’s side gig? Modelling lovely knitted jumpers. And doesn’t he look swell?
This was Eddie back in 2004, looking slick.
The Hollywood star featured in Rowan Yarns’s Denim People book, “a fabulous collection of 30 dazzling designs” for both men and women. Fabulous and dazzling; we couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Rowan Yarns writes on their official Facebook page:
“Many of you know Eddie Redmayne for his latest role as Marius in Les Misérables, but only the dedicated Rowan fans will recognise him from Rowan Denim People (2004)”.
We wish we looked this good in chunky knits.
