Eddie Redmayne is to become the International Ambassador for Omega, it has been announced.
The award-winning actor, who recently won much acclaim for his 2014 portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, is to become part of Omega’s existing ambassador family.
“We are absolutely delighted to welcome Eddie to the Omega family. He brings true elegance and integrity, and is incredibly humble about his success – something that sits perfectly with the Omega spirit. We very much look forward to working together” said Stephen Urquhart, President of Omega.
For the performance, he was awarded an Oscar, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. He is next set to star in The Danish Girl, in which he will be reunited with director Tom Hooper (Les Misérables).
“I have worn Omega for a number of years, so to be made an official ambassador for the brand on a global level is very exciting. To join a brand whose own credentials include the only watch to be officially certified by NASA, and the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games is an honour” adds Redmayne.
Redmayne will become part of the Omega family, joined by the likes of George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Rory McIlroy, and Cindy Crawford.
