Spotted out and about in New York this past weekend with Carey Mulligan, Eddie Redmayne has blipped in on our radar. The pair have sparked rumours of dating when photographers snapped a few of the two holding hands. Despite not yet being a household name, Eddie has had quite a run in theatre, television, and films; he even broke into the modelling scene in 2008 for Burberry.

Born Edward John David Redmayne on 6 Jan. of 1982 in London, England, Redmayne attended Eton and then continued his studies in History of Art at Trinity College, Cambridge. An alumnus from the National Youth Music Theatre, circa 1998, Redmayne made his professional debut for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in Twelfth Night in 2002 and in 2005 won the award for Best Newcomer at the Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards.

His list of awards continues in impressive length with the 2010 Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and the 2010 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Play for his portrayal of painter Mark Rothko’s, Alfred Molina, assistant in Red.

Television credits of Redmayne’s include miniseries Tess Of The D’Urbervilles, and The Pillars of the Earth; and made for TV films such as Savage Grace, and The Other Boleyn Girl. His more notable screen credits are “Like Minds” and Sundance Film Festival hit, “The Yellow Handkerchief”-where he shared a hot and sweaty scene with Kristen Stewart.

Mulligan has seemingly traded in her American fellow for a British beau. I hope she’s happy with this swap, if not I’d be happy to take him off her hands.
