Interview: Eddie Redmayne Talks ‘The Good Nurse’

Eddie Redmayne is the sort of actor you never know what to expect out of. I mean that as a compliment, too. When you look at his Oscar-winning turn in The Theory of Everything, a performance that blew me away, it bears no resemblance to his work in The Good Nurse, which I saw at the World Premiere back at the Toronto International Film Festival. Redmayne is constantly reinventing himself with every movie, often to our benefit. Last week, I had the chance to hop on Zoom for a very quick conversation with him. Today, you can see Redmayne and I discuss his baity turn in the Netflix flick.

In my review of The Good Nurse out of TIFF (found here), I had this to say:

Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne are the clear highlights of The Good Nurse. They’re able to do a lot with their eyes here, watching patients, certain events, and even each other. Chastain wears exhaustion like a suit of armor, while Redmayne has a boy-ish bit of awkwardness that both creeps and disarms in equal measure. 

Below, you can see my quick chat with Redmayne. In our limited amount of time, I chose to ask him about doing these sorts of junkets. It was not dissimilar from when I did this with Andrew Garfield last year (found here). Redmayne gave a very thoughtful answer, as you’re about to find out. Give it a watch, and of course, if you haven’t seen The Good Nurse yet, it’s currently streaming on Netflix and is really quite solid.


Here now is my interview with The Good Nurse star Eddie Redmayne. Enjoy:
