Eddie Redmayne Shows Off Magic Skills To Benedict Cumberbatch, His Childhood Tricks Have Everyone Cracking Up!

Everyone who has seen him perform knows that Eddie Redmayne is a talented actor. He won the coveted Best Actor in a Leading Role Academy Award last year for his performance in A Theory of Everything, and gained attention prior to that in Les Miserables and My Week with Marilyn, just to name a few of his films. But did you know he’s also a talented magician?


We’ve shared a hilarious magician with you before, but Eddie’s performance on The Graham Norton Show is particularly memorable as he’s performing with fellow superstars Bryan Cranston and Benedict Cumberbatch (who we last saw singing onstage with Pink Floyd!).

Eddie’s love of magic is especially appropriate since he stars as the wizard Newt Scamander in the upcoming Harry Potter film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Benedict Cumberbatch– who previously starred in Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Imitation Game, and more– is also dealing in magic in Doctor Strange, the newest Marvel movie.

So, when Grahame Norton had both the actors on his stage (plus Byran Cranston, because why not?), he knew he had to incorporate magic into the show! Thus, he breaks out a coloring book and lets Eddie Redmayne do the rest! During the act that follows, it’s impossible to keep from smiling!
