Deadline reports that Amber Heard is in talks to join Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl as supporting character Oola. The film has been adapted by Lucinda Coxon from David Ebershoff’s 2001 novel of the same name, which details the life of Einar Wegener/Lili Elbe, a Danish painter and one of the first people to undergo sexual reassignment surgery in the early 1900s. Eddie Redmayne was cast as the film’s lead earlier this year, and has since been joined by Alicia Vikander, who will play his wife and artist Gerda Gottlieb.
