Eddie Redmayne keeps it casual on a walk in NYC as he takes a break from filming serial killer drama The Good Nurse

He has been working hard on filming his new role as American serial killer Charles Cullen in The Good Nurse.

So Eddie Redmayne took advantage of a rare downtime when he went shopping in New York City’s Soho district on Tuesday.

The British actor, 39, went for a casual look when he stepped out in a blue T-shirt with sunglasses hooked around his neck.

He paired the garment with beige trousers held up with a brown belt and white trainers.

The star seemed in good spirits carrying a few paper shopping bags after indulging in some retail therapy.

Eddie also wore a blue face mask as he walked down the street – New York state last month announced that all vaccinated customers will no longer be required to wear face coverings outdoors.

The actor has been hard at work filming the upcoming American crime thriller The Good Nurse in Connecticut, which tells the story behind the pursuit and arrest of American serial killer Charles Cullen.

Eddie takes on the lead role as Cullen, a former nurse who is currently serving 18 consecutive life sentences at the New Jersey State Penitentiary after confessing to murdering up to 40 patients during his 16-year career.

Based on the book by author Charles Graeber, The Good Nurse tells the true story of the capture of Cullen who operated at nine different hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Jessica Chastain stars in the film as a nurse who worked alongside Cullen and risked her life to bring him to justice.

The film will also star NFL player turned actor Nnamdi Asomugha, who will play one of the lead police detectives in the case, Danny Baldwin.

After his crimes came to light, Cullen was arrested in December 2003, charged with one count of murder and one count of attempted murder.

In April 2004, he pleaded guilty to killing 13 patients, and after agreeing to cooperate with police to avoid the death penalty, he pleaded guilty to murdering three more patients and six more later that year.

Cullen was eventually sentenced to 18 consecutive life sentences in 2006, and will not be eligible for parole until 2,403.

The Good Nurse began filming in April 2021 and is directed by director Tobias Lindholm.

While no official release date has been announced yet, the film is expected to hit Netflix in 2022.

Eddie most recently starred in The Trial of the Chicago 7, for which he received a SAG nomination.

Meanwhile, Jessica has The Eyes of Tammy Faye slated for later this year and The 355 in 2022, while Nnamdi most recently starred opposite Tessa Thompson in Amazon novel Sylvie’s Love.
