The Oscar-winning Jeremy Irons takes to the red chair with a look back at his amazing career. George talks to Irons about his his many roles above and beyond being actor. Busking was his first love, but after a few career experiments he began landing more and more acting roles, in everything from Brideshead Revisited, Reversal of Fortune, Dead Ringers, M. Butterfly and The Borgias.
Irons has long been outspoken on many issues, and is said to be the first celebrity to have worn an AIDS awareness ribbon at a public event, has spoken out against the death penalty and is touring his documentary about consumer consumption and the garbage epidemic, Trashed. He has also drawn much criticism for things like his renovated castle home and his recent comments about gay marriage. In town to support his long-time collaborator and friend David Cronenberg's Evolution exhibition, George gets to the heart of it all with this legendary actor.
