Eddie Redmayne lied to Tom Hooper at TV audition

From WENN.com

Redmayne was desperate to land a part when he tried out for Hooper's 2005 TV movie Elizabeth I, which starred Dame Helen Mirren.

The role required a certain amount of equestrian ability and Redmayne admits he regretted lying about his horse-riding skills

after he was almost killed during a dangerous battle scene.

He tells Deadline.com, ""I first met Tom on an audition for the HBO miniseries Elizabeth I, and he asked, 'Eddie, have you ever ridden a horse?' To which I said, 'Yes.'

""Two weeks later, Helen Mirren is playing Elizabeth, there are 47 stunt horsemen behind me, I've got spurs attached to my feet and I'm like, 'At what point do I admit having never ridden a horse?'

""They call 'Action!' and I almost kill myself. Tom shouts, 'You're a b**ody liar, Redmayne!' It has taken seven years for him to consider employing me again!""

Hooper went on to cast Redmayne as Marius in his latest movie, the big-screen adaptation of hit Broadway musical Les Miserables.
