PORTRAIT

Stage-trained, elegant and immensely talented (and rather arrogant) British actor who likes to alternate his work between Hollywood and Europe, film and stage and leads and character roles. Irons is creative and up for a challenge, but his enigmatic persona has perhaps prevented him from becoming completely embraced by the public.

 

TRIVIA

  • The first film I saw with Jeremy Irons was also (in my opinion) his best: The magnificent role of Claus von Bülow in Reversal of Fortune

"I'm offering you what you've always been after - my money, just so that my grandchild can bear your idiotic name."
