Eddie Redmayne is The Danish Girl

British Oscar and Academy Award winning actor Eddie Redmayne joins Lorraine to talk about his latest film playing the title role in The Danish Girl, in cinemas now.

The film tells the remarkable story of Einar Mogens Wegener, a Danish male landscape painter who in 1930 underwent the world's first gender reassignment surgery.

Einar had five experimental operations over the course of a year to become Lili Elb. His final operation was a womb transplant, but with his body already weakened by the other surgeries and with no drugs available at the time to prevent the body rejecting new organs, Lili died at the age of 48, just two days after his last operation.
