Redmayne grew up watching Neighbours and is a huge fan of Dr. Karl (Alan Fletcher) and Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne).
“I think they’re amazing,” he has previously told Elle magazine.
“I’m a huge fan of them from old. I’ve learnt a lot from them from watching them daily.
“They are the greatest unsung acting duo in history”.
And it seems the admiration is mutual.
“It’s always wonderful when someone compliments your work, but to have such lovely things said from such an incredibly talented actor is very humbling and means more to me than he will ever know,” Jackie Woodburne told News Corp.
Alan Fletcher added, “To receive such generous praise from an actor of Eddie Redmayne’s startling ability and status has been thrilling for both of us.
“It never ceases to excite me to hear examples of the influence Neighbours has had beyond Australia. And congratulations Eddie for the recognition of your wonderful performance in The Theory of Everything.”
