U.K.'s present to the cinema: Jeremy Irons
Jeremy Irons is known as a successful actor who can get into the mind of the any character he plays. Considered as one of the greatest actors to have come out of the U.K., Irons won an Academy Award for Best Male Actor with his role in "Reversal of Fortune" and is a six-time Golden Globe nominee, winning twice. His filmography places him in the company of other legendary actors and proof that he is one of the first names that comes to mind when it comes to play daring, complicated and tough characters on the silver screen. Thanks to his unmatched voice and his ability to adapt to the atmosphere of a period drama, he is a popular actor in historical and fantasy films. Although, he is a legendary actor on the silver screen, Irons has had equal success on the stage, going right back to the beginning of his career. Along with his cinema projects, he continues to consistently tread the boards. Irons looks set to dominate the box offices in 2016 with his films, "La Corrispondenza" by director Giuseppe Tornatore, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" by Zack Snyder and "Assassin's Creed" by Justin Kurzel.
