Redmayne won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking, and he is up for an Academy Award and BAFTA for Best Actor.

Directed by Academy Award winning director James Marsh and starring alongside Felicity Jones, Emily Watson and David Thewlis, "The Theory of Everything" is inspired by Jane Hawking's memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My life with Stephen." It follows the love story between the Cambridge cosmology student and Jane Wilde, the arts student he fell in love with in the 60s.

The 33-year-old will next start filming Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl" alongside Alicia Vikander. Inspired by the true story of Danish painter Einar Wegener and his wife Gerda, the story follows their passionate and unusual love story, set in the twentieth century.

Redmayne also completed filming the Sci-Fi film "Jupiter Ascending" with Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, which hits theaters Feb. 6.
