  • -Eddie, when you and I... we go back a very very long way. -Yeah, such a long way.

  • We both attended the Jackie Palmer Stage School in High Wycombe, in Buckinghamshire.

  • What do you remember of this time?

  • I now hear you say it with such pride, it gives me goosebumps.

  • So this Jackie Palmer Stage School was this amazing place, and I remember going...

  • I would go and there would be these concerts and theatre pieces,

  • and I didn't really have any friends...

  • and I would go, and I would sing, 'cause I was obsessed with singing then,

  • and I would like be the guy that sang like "Memory" from Cats.

  • And James used to be rapping and doing street dance.

  • And I was like... no but it was genuinely, I was a bit scared of him.

  • -Was he a bully? -A little bit. -I was older than you! I was four years above, so...

  • - Are you one of the cool kids? - Yeah.

  • - I was the cool kid. - You were the cool kid. You were like the leader of the pack?

  • I wasn't the leader. There were a lot more other leaders.

  • There was a guy called James Wilson, and Thomas, and they were very much the coolest.

  • And they were in my year. But yeah, you singing "Memory", I remember that. I remember that, it was amazing.

  • -Sing it now. Sing it! -I knew coming on this show is a bad idea.

  • - If only we had a clip of you singing that. - No no no no no no...

  • No...

  • - Oh, it's beautiful! It's beautiful! - So sweet, Eddie!

  • - And you know, I think they might be making a film of that.

  • Well, there you go! It was beautiful. I could remember everyone in the wings that day

  • going "That guy is gonna win an Oscar."

  • - Not even that guy... this guy. Because there was an agency, there was a stage call, where we had an agency, -It was awful.

  • where you would go up for auditions, and here's Eddie's headshot.

  • - I was Edward, by the way. - Edward. Edward Redmayne.

  • - There you are there. There you are there, looking beautiful. I'll bring myself in. There's mine. -Nice.

  • It's... cheeky chubby.

  • I love your special skills.

  • What I love here, which I never knew was in there, sings, dances,

  • runs pop group "Insatiable", which was my band at school.

  • - But I also love that you ran it. - Yeah, I love it very much.

  • Well, you're not getting away with it, Chastain.

  • Look at this little cheeky one. Look at her! Look!

  • Are you sure that's not Eddie?

  • It could be! But, the truth is, that could be Eddie in the Danish Girl. It actually could be!

  • Walk us through this photo. Were you auditioning for Annie at the time, or?

  • I thought that was the cool way to dress.

  • No, I wanted a perm, it's, you know, just thought a perm would be cool, and it gave me the biggest red fro!

  • I had it four years, I had missed my teeth, I had red cowboy boots I rocked through high school.

  • Not high school, this is not my high school.

  • Yeah this is... this is... how old are you there?

  • - Uh, probably eight? I don't know. I think you got that from my mother, so she would know. - It's beautiful.

-Eddie, when you and I... we go back a very very long way. -Yeah, such a long way.
