Redmayne has a passion for art having studied History of Art at Cambridge. The British actor purchased early 20th century Japanese wood block prints from York's Japanese Print Shop stand where pieces ranged from £95-4 500. Redmayne picked up six of the prints before heading to The Royal Opera House where he was presented with the award for his portrayal of Stephen Hawkings.
