Max Irons

Max Irons caught the industry’s attention with his impressive body of work, which spans television, film and on stage, and, with several exciting projects coming up, 2017 promises to firmly establish him as an international acting presence to watch.

Irons’s notable film credits include: Jared Howe in the 2013 feature adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling novel of the same name The Host, with Saoirse Ronan; Henry in Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood (2011), with Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman; and Lucius in Oliver Parker’s 2009 feature adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Grey.

In 2009, Irons made his professional stage debut in Friedrich Schiller’s Wallenstein at the Chichester Festival Theatre for which he was nominated for the prestigious Ian Charleson Award. The Stage called his performance “delightful” while The Independent raved his was “heartbreakingly stern-yet-fragile” portrayal.

In Crooked House Max plays Charles Hayward, Sophia Leonide's one-time lover and private investigator with links to Scotland Yard. Talking about Agatha Christie, Max said:

Agatha Christie’s work has really stood the test of time. She crafted these stories so painstakingly with such detail and precision.
