I’m rereading Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Angel is described as wearing ‘a dark velveteen jacket’ and basically I was like WOAH THERE, Eddie played Angel and Eddie is obsessed with velvet! It’s like it was meant to be!
Although I don’t actually recollect him wearing any velvet in the production! He was probably upset, he was probably like 'but Thomas Hardy himself said that Angel wore a velvet jacket, why can’t I wear a velvet jacket?’
I think I have a problem!
Although velveteen isn’t actually real velvet but that is not the point! The point is that I associated the two with each other!
Anyway, I’ve just spouted so much bullshit so I’ll treat you to a picture of The Velveteen Redmayne as a reward for putting up with me!
