Eddie Redmayne and Wife Hannah Bagshawe Match in Black and White Skirts

By Michael May 7, 2024

When Eddie Redmayne met Hannah Bagshawe, they weren’t even considering getting married — they were simply teenagers at neighboring schools.

Redmayne’s class at Eton College (which included Prince William) was invited to a local all-girls school to help with a charity fashion show.

“It was an embarrassing evening,” he told the Daily Mail in 2014. “I had to walk across the stage topless — I was this pasty, freckly guy and when I came on the girls in the audience didn’t take much notice of me, but I was followed by the best-looking boy in the school and all the girls erupted in cheers, which was emotionally scarring!”

However, it was the night the Fantastic Beasts star met his future wife. “She was very beautiful and very funny and she loves the arts and theatre just as I do, so we became friends,” he explained.

Bagshawe, a PR executive in finance, was his pal for more than a decade. Everything changed when Redmayne invited her to travel to Italy with him just before he started filming Les Miserables.

“Before I went, Hannah and I were on a sort of date — we’d been good friends for 12 years — and we had a wonderful evening and I suddenly said, ‘You don’t want to come to Florence with me next week, do you?’ She said, ‘That’s absurd, you don’t mean it.’ I said, ‘Yes I do!’ So our first proper date was in Florence,” he said, adding that the two “couldn’t be happier” at the time.

The duo wed in an intimate ceremony at the Babington House in Somerset, England, in December 2014, his rep confirmed to Us.
