Actor Eddie Redmayne may be best known for his roles in period pieces like The Other Boleyn Girl, My Week with Marilyn, Birdsong, and — most recently — Les Misérables, but in real life, the 31-year-old is decidedly 21st-century, so much so that he is app-solutely enamored of his iPhone. So what are his go-to applications? Check out six of his faves here, and then watch the video below to see how he used his tech to audition for Les Miz!

Rehearsal 2
“This is a genius app for actors. It means you don't have to carry around or print out scripts. I can make notes directly on the app, highlight my scenes, run and record lines, take reference photos — it's pretty indispensable.”

8mm Vintage
“This is a great video app that allows you to choose old vintage camera types, creating stuff with a grainy, ‘30s black-and-white style or a ‘60s bleached feel. I took a few videos whilst making Birdsong that, with everyone in period costume, look scarily real.”

TED
“I love TED talks. I can't get enough. Bright, ingenious, and sometimes completely bizarre addresses but always massively thought-provoking.”

Monocle 24
“I am a massive fan of Monocle and the new radio station. The programs are diverse and constantly intriguing, covering culture, business, and design.”

Housebites
“I love food, but sometimes you can’t be bothered to cook or don’t fancy going out. But this is really cool: Local quite brilliant chefs cook, and it is delivered fresh to you.”
