An Exclusive Interview with the Star of The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne. Rajendra Roy, MoMA will be moderating the event on Wednesday, October 21, 2014 at the Standard, High Line.
Tony Award® winner Eddie Redmayne will be the featured guest at BAFTA New York’s next “In Conversation” that takes place on Wednesday, October 21, 2014 at The Standard, High Line. Redmayne, on-screen this fall in the Working Title production The Theory of Everything, will discuss his career in film, on stage and television, before a live audience on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at The Standard, High Line. Rajendra Roy, Chief Curator, Department of Film, MoMA, will moderate the intimate discussion. “In Conversation,” a series of live interviews with notable British actors, directors, screenwriters and producers, explores their career achievements and provides insight on what it takes to become and remain a distinguished artist. “In Conversation” is part of the “Standard Talks” program, a series of talks taking place across all Standard Hotels in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami. British Airways is also the presenting sponsor of BAFTA New York’s signature initiative, “In Conversation.”
“I’m honored that BAFTA has invited me to be part of its ‘In Conversation’ series in the great city of New York,” said Eddie Redmayne. “I have a special affection for the creative community in NYC, which I was made to feel part of when I was welcomed to Broadway a few years ago. To now have the opportunity to return and engage in a dialogue about film and culture is something I am hugely looking forward to.”
“The response to In Conversation has been fantastic and we are delighted that Eddie Redmayne will share with us the inside story of what drives him to excellence on screen and on stage,” said Charles Tremayne, BAFTA New York Chairman. “This is what makes our series so unique – it ‘s not a promotion, it’s an immersion in the craft of acting, the essence of what BAFTA stands for.”
“I have known Eddie for many years and he has year-on-year been one of the very most exciting actors out there to watch,” said Luke Parker Bowles, Chairman of Film and Events, BAFTA New York. “I would have begged, borrowed and stolen to get him to do this, but fortunately he spared us such jail time and kindly agreed to let us honor him. And, it will truly be an event to remember.”
This event is not open to the public.
