Birdsong star Eddie Redmayne on his award-winning role as Richard II

6th February 2012



Eddie Redmayne, whose performance in the title role of Richard II won the Critics’ Circle Award for Best Shakespearean Performance talks to Heather Neill about the play, and about his career and other plans. Recorded at the Donmar Warehouse, 3 February 2012.

Even from the outset, whilst Richard is playing at being in charge, I always think he’s trying to demonstrate a subconscious urge to will the crown away.
