Eddie Redmayne reveals his acting ambitions

London: Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne has revealed he did not know he wanted to make acting his career until he was 19.

The 33-year-old star said being on stage was not a life-long dream to make it his profession, was reported.

“I enjoyed it growing up but it was only when I was about 18 or 19 and did a production of Cabaret at the Edinburgh Festival that I knew I wanted to make acting my career,” he said.

And Redmayne still feels like a “kid play-acting” and compared making movies to going on holiday. “The odd thing about this profession is that you still feel like a kid play-acting. There’s this sense of make-believe and wonder to it that stays with you”.

“Making movies is a bit like being on a summer holiday where you meet people, become friends and then perhaps go away and never meet again.”
