Eddie Redmayne has a new interview with ScreenCave in which he praises his ‘Les Miserables’ co-star Amanda Seyfried.
In the interview, he talks about the love story between him and Seyfried’s character, saying, “The second Amanda (Seyfried) comes on smiling the film sort of takes a breath of something absolutely. It was so interesting filming this version of the love story, because the love story is he sees her, and then doesn’t see her for seven months. On stage, that is sort of condensed between him dropping a book, her picking it up and they look at each other and stars kind of come out, something changes.”
He also adds, “In this film, more than on any film I’ve ever seen, people were coming in on their days off just to watch your friends singing their songs. I suppose one of the people that I admire the most was actually Amanda in her capacity to that on stage, that part is really thinly sketched. It’s very difficult to get a sense of the love triangle because the audience is kind of like “Oye, Marius, wake up dude! You’ve got this really hot girl who lives down the street from you and is going after you!” What Amanda managed to bring to the thinly written part is this great sense of light but also strength and a girl on the brink of sort of womanhood really. I certainly thought that was amazing."
In addition to Redmayne and Seyfried, ‘Les Miserables’ also stars Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Samantha Barks.
