JEREMY IRONS

Actor, UK

Presentation

With a movie career spanning more than three decades, Jeremy Irons is one of the best-loved actors among film fans the world over. In parallel to a rich career on stage, he has alternated big-budget movies and auteur films, leaving his own inimitable stamp on characters who are often chilling and disturbing. He has worked with many of the great directors: as a Jesuit priest in THE MISSION by Roland Joffé, a doctor slipping into madness in DEAD RINGERS by David Cronenberg, a man accused of killing his wife in REVERSAL OF FORTUNE by Barbet Schroeder (which won him the Oscar for Best Actor in 1990), the title role in Steven Soderbergh’s portrait of the writer KAFKA, a politician succumbing to passion in DAMAGE by Louis Malle, a writer on the brink of death in STEALING BEAUTY by Bernardo Bertolucci, or as the Prince of Galilee in KINGDOM OF HEAVEN by Ridley Scott. His upcoming appearances include NIGHT TRAIN TO LISBON from Danish director Bille August, and HIGH-RISE directed by his countryman Ben Wheatley.
