The Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne revealed that he was once auditioned for the character of Kylo Ren in the movie Stars Wars: The Force Awakens. However, the actor did not land the role.

"They gave me like a 'Star Trek' scene - or like something from 'Pride and Prejudice.' It was one of those films," Redmayne said.

"With films that top secret, they don't give you the actual lines. So they give you a scene from 'Pride and Prejudice,' but then they tell you you're auditioning for the baddie. If you're me, you then put some ridiculous voice on." He added.

The Theory of Everything actor went on to further reveal how he lost the role to Adam Driver, as he was unable to fit the bill.

"That was really a hilarious moment. Because it was Nina Gold - who I have to thank a lot because she's cast me in several films - and she was just sitting there and I was trying again and again with different versions of my kind of 'koohh paaaah'," said the actor.

Redmayne continued, "'Darth Vader breathing sound' voice, and after like 10 shots she's like, 'You got anything else?' I was like, 'No.'"

However, Redmayne is now all set to appear in a much powerful role as Newt Scamander in the upcoming J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
