Eddie Redmayne says it was a mistake to play trans role in The Danish Girl

* Eddie Redmayne has said playing a transgender character in 2015 film The Danish Girl was “a mistake”;

* The British star was nominated for an Oscar for his role as Lile Elbe, one of the first people in the world to have gender reassignment surgery:

* “I wouldn’t take it on now. I made the film with the best intentions, but I think it was a mistake. The bigger discussion about the frustrations around casting is because many people don’t have a chair at the table. There must be a leveling.”
