One of the most esteemed actors in contemporary cinema, Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune, The French Lieutenant's Woman, Elizabeth I) joins us at TIFF Bell Lightbox to look back at his impressive career and discuss his collaboration with David Cronenberg on Dead Ringers and M. Butterfly.
Jeremy Irons has long been regarded as a legend of film, television, and theatre. Since dazzling audiences with his performance in the small-screen adaptation of Brideshead Revisited, Irons has gone on to a string of successes, landing starring roles in The French Lieutenant's Woman, Reversal of Fortune (which won him the Academy Award for Best Actor), The Mission, Bernardo Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty, Adrian Lyne's Lolita, and David Cronenberg's M. Butterfly and Dead Ringers. He joins us to discuss his genre-spanning career — from action (Die Hard: With A Vengeance) to animation (The Lion King) to historical-drama (Showtime's The Borgias) — and memorable collaborations with Cronenberg.
