"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories. Some take us forward, they're called dreams."

Jeremy John Irons (born September 19, 1948) is an English film, television, stage and voice actor, well-known for his deep, gravelly voice, described by one critic as "whipped cream with glass shards" that reeks of Magnificent Bastardry. He has won an Academy Award, a Tony and an Emmy, making him one of the few actors to win the "Triple Crown" of acting awards, as well as two Golden Globes.

Irons is very British in his Hollywood roles, and isn't afraid to have some fun while doing a villain role for cash. It's difficult to make a meaningful anagram out of his name.

Roles:


Tropes:

  • Depraved Kids' Show Host: Or rather a kids show host that went on to play a number of depraved characters in films, including a paedophile in Lolita. But he started out as a presenter on the 1970s British children's TV show Play Away
  • Evil Brit: Often cast as a villain in roles that rarely conceal his Britishness, if ever.
  • Large Ham: Expecially as a villain.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Always comes across as a gentleman in interviews. Also has been involved in humanitarian efforts and organizations, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, an initiative aimed at defeating third-world hunger.
