Actor Eddie Redmayne has been filming a new film about the legendary scientist’s life The Theory of Everything: The Story of Stephen Hawking this past week in Cambridge, England and there is quite a resemblance. Wearing Hawking’s signature spectacles and clad in a scholarly outfit with a bow tie, Redmayne is seen here filming some biking scenes.
On Friday (September 27, 2013), Eddie got an on site visit form Hawking himself. The celebrated physicist posed for pictures with the cast.
The film, which was written by Anthony McCarten, focuses on Stephen’s relationship with his first wife Jane Wilde from their first meeting at Cambridge, when he was able-bodied. It will also follow the highs and lows of their romance and life together following his diagnosis with motor neuron disease when he was 21.
The new film co-stars Felicity Jones as the professor’s first wife Jane and is due out next year.
