Jonathan Rhys Meyers is an Irish actor and model born in 1977. He is best known for his portrayal of Henry VIII in Showtime's hit TV series ''Series/TheTudors'', though his first big break came in 1998 in the form of Todd Haynes' ''VelvetGoldmine'', in which he played bi-sexual glam rock singer Brian Slade, to considerable critical acclaim. Meyers' international fame was boosted after his leading role in Creator/WoodyAllen's ''MatchPoint'', and his Golden Globe-winning portrayal of Music/ElvisPresley in the 2005 TV miniseries, "''Elvis"''. He has recently been cast as ''Series/{{Dracula}}'' in an upcoming NBC series based on Creator/BramStoker's classic tale, and as BigBad Valentine Morgenstern in the film adaptation of ''TheMortalInstruments''.

Not to be confused with Creator/JohnRhysDavies.

Oh...and he's also [[EstrogenBrigadeBait rather attractive]]. Did we mention that?
