      Classically trained stage actor Jeremy Irons enjoyed one of the most varied international film careers of his peers, going beyond the expected costume dramas to offer award-winning performances as men of all eras and motives. Leveraging his rich, haunting voice for both good and evil, Irons elicited deep-seated discomfort in films like "Dead Ringers" (1988) and "Reversal of Fortune" (1990), but romanced with charming nobility in "The French Lieutenant's Woman" (1981) and "Being Julia" (2004). Irons earned two of his handful of Golden Globe nods while exploring British culture in the television miniseries "Brideshead Revisited" (ITV/PBS, 1981) and "Elizabeth I" (HBO, 2006), but was cast as everything from artists to executives by some of the most renowned directors in the international film community, including Louis Malle, Bernardo Bertolucci, Franco Zeffirelli and Wayne Wang. Irons made his mark in everything from period films to studio blockbusters to everything in between, playing one of the original Musketeers in "The Man in the Iron Mask" (1998), an over-the-top villain in "Dungeons & Dragons" (2000), Antonio in "The Merchant of Venice" (2004), and a cold-blooded investment banking CEO in "Margin Call" (2011). Meanwhile, he made a rare turn to the small screen to give an acclaimed performance as Pope Alexander VI on the widely hailed cable series, "The Borgias" (Showtime, 2011-13 ). Regardless of the role or medium, Irons could always be counted on to deliver still waters that ran deep - often deep into the realms of great emotional anguish.
