Actor Max Irons has grown on me. The problem is the first thing I saw him in was The White Queen, and I couldn’t like him on principle (Philippa Fucking Gregory being the issue). But he was cute in Woman in Gold and Crooked House, and then I watched Tutankhamun… and while I have many questions about the plot, I definitely ended up Team Max Irons! So let’s enjoy:
Dorian Gray (2009)
An adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s 1890 novel. Irons appears to be in only one scene, where his character makes out with Dorian.
Red Riding Hood (2011)
Okay technically fantasy, but I’m trying to fill things out. Irons plays the man Valerie is engaged to, but whom she doesn’t want to marry.
The White Queen (2013)
As King Edward IV of England during the Wars of the Roses in this Philippa Fucking Gregory adaptation.
Woman in Gold (2015)
An elderly Jewish refugee sues for the return of paintings that were stolen from her family when the Nazis invaded Vienna. Irons plays her husband in the flashback scenes.
As Howard Carter, the archaeologist who discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb, in this BBC miniseries.
Bitter Harvest (2017)
A romantic drama that depicts “Ukraine’s Holodomor, a genocide committed by Soviet leader Joseph Stalin using food as a weapon through mass starvation as millions of Ukrainians died under forced collectivization of all farms and businesses owned by Ukrainians” per Wikipedia.
Crooked House (2017)
An adaptation of a 1949 Agatha Christie novel. Irons plays a private investigator who investigates the murder of his ex-girlfriend’s grandfather.
