Can you recognise one of your favourite Hollywood actors?!

It’s not everyday that Hollywood actors take on transgender roles and when they do it’s certainly something to be praised.

When we heard that Eddie Redmayne was to take on the role of Lili Elbe in new movie, The Danish Girl, we weren’t too sure what to expect – but nothing could have prepared us for this!

The actor, who was recently adorned with an Oscars for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, stars as Lili who was one of the world’s first people to undergo gender reassignment surgery.

Lili, born Einar Mogens Wegener underwent the then-experimental surgeries in Berlin in the early 1930’s. Sadly, Lili died in 1930 when a uterus transplant did not take to her body.

The Danish Girl is set to be one of the biggest movies of 2015 and just from seeing Eddie’s incredible transformation we cannot wait to see it!
