Eddie Redmayne is anything but Les Miserables.

The actor, who played the role of Marius in the film adaptation of the beloved musical, proposed to Hannah Bagshawe, his girlfriend of two-plus years, over Memorial Day weekend, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Redmayne, 32, who told PEOPLE that he looks for "a proper sense of individuality" in a woman, as well as "comfort in their skin," also appreciates his fiancée's keen eye – for good reason.

"I'm color blind," he said, explaining to PEOPLE why Bagshawe helps him get dressed.

"When I go out to premieres and events, I have to check with my girlfriend that the trousers match the top," Redmayne said. "I recently wore a blue suit – and I had to ask her if it was really blue rather than purple. She assured me it was blue. I could not tell the difference."

"I'm lucky to be with someone who is very supportive," he added.
