Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne to lend his voice to Thomas The Tank Engine movie

The Theory of Everything actor voiced a new engine named Ryan.

Eddie Redmayne, who won the Best Actor Oscar recently for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything is to appear in a brand new Thomas the Tank Engine film.

“I grew up loving to watch Thomas and his pals getting caught up in unexpected mischievous adventures”, Redmayne said. “I jumped at the opportunity to get involved and what fun it was! I have never voiced an animated character before, and I had a complete blast.”

John Hurt also stars as Sailor John and he commented: “I remember watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my children when they were young and I’m delighted that it continues with each successive generation.

“I enjoy working vocally and have voiced many animated characters. Sailor John was something of a departure for what I usually do and a lot of fun to play.”

The film, titled Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure, will be released to DVD this year.
