(Pink News)  The first posters for transgender period drama The Danish Girl have been released.

The Brit actor has taken on the role of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe for the film directed by Tom Hooper, who also helmed Oscar winners Les Miserables and The King’s Speech.

It looks set to be another incredible transformation for the Oscar winner who in 2014 portrayed Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything.

Based on a true story, Lili was originally a landscape painter, who realised that she was transgender after posing in women’s clothes for her wife.

Einar went on to undergo one of the first gender reassignment surgeries, before living out her life as Lili Elbe.

UPDATE – PR Company Focus Features have told me that the posters are unofficial, and released without their permission. At their request we have removed the images of the poster.

Instead, here’s picture of Eddie looking fabulous.
