My Conversation With Eddie Redmayne

Tonight I'm joined by actor Eddie Redmayne, the Golden Globe-winning and Academy Award-nominated star of the hit film The Theory of Everything. The film portrays the story of real-life theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and is based on the book by his first wife, Jane Wilde Hawking.

In the clip below, Eddie shares how his own outlook on life has changed after having interacted with Hawking and others impacted by ALS.
