At 24, the son of the famous English actor Jeremy is ready for his début
Jeremy Irons’ 24 year-old son, Maximilian, known as Max, is almost a newcomer to the silver screen.
His curriculum to date: three years of acting school, an appearance of just a few seconds in István Szabo’s Being Julia, a small part in Dorian Gray by Oliver Parker and two (equally small) parts in the theatre, in Mike Poulton’s Wallenstein last summer at the Minerva in Chichester and in Artist Descending a Staircase last December at the Old Red Lion in London.
Now his big chance comes from director Catherine Hardwicke who chose Robert Pattinson for Twilight, launching into the stratosphere a young English actor who, until then, could only boast a few appearances in the saga of Harry Potter.
Now it is Max’s turn, together with Shiloh Fernandez (a 25 year old American the director had already taken into consideration for the lead role in Twilight). He has been chosen for the cast of a new project entitled Red Riding Hood, a Gothic horror rereading of the story of Little Red Riding Hood which will probably appear in American cinemas in April next year.
