Hundreds of people gathered in Budapest on Monday to stand up for public education workers on Teachers’ Day. The surprise guest at the demonstration was British actor Eddie Redmayne. The Oscar-winning artist has previously starred in films such as The Pillars of the Earth, The Theory of Everything and Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them.
On Monday afternoon, the Adom Student Movement organised a Teachers’ Day exhibition in Budapest. The protesters gathered on Oktogon and marched to the Ministry of Interior. We reported on this in detail HERE.
The tabloid reports that Redmayne was presumably unaware that he was taking part in a protest. However, the photos suggest that he was happy to take selfies with the students present. Check out the pictures of Redmayne happily posing for selfies with people at the bottom of THIS article.
Eddie Redmayne won an Oscar in 2015 for his performance in The Theory of Everything. The actor is currently filming a series based on the Frederick Forsyth novel Day of the Jackal in Budapest. Redmayne is rumoured to play the title character Jackal, who plots to assassinate the French president in the book, Index writes.
