Production on Henry IV, Part 1 and Henry IV, Part 2 has begun. A cast read-through took place the first week of January. Filming began on the 9th and will last nine weeks for both films. Locations include Caerphilly Castle in Wales, which is apparently being used as the site of Hotspur’s meeting with Owen Glendower. Filming also took place at Ashridge.

Filming will take place at Gloucester Cathedral from 25 January, for about two weeks.

In February, filming moves to Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire.

From the official BBC Press Release:

Continuing with the incredibly high standard set by Richard II, Jeremy Irons plays the role of King Henry IV in this production adapted and directed by Richard Eyre. Tom Hiddleston joins the cast as Prince Hal, Simon Russell Beale plays Falstaff and Alun Armstrong plays the Earl of Northumberland. Lady Northumberland is played by Niamh Cusack with Hotspur played by Joe Armstrong.

As with Richard II and Henry V, these bold adaptations are set in the medieval period and are being shot at some of the UK’s most stunning locations. The films will bring a new scale to Shakespeare in one of the most ambitious television projects of recent years.

Henry IV, Part 1 is expected to air on BBC2 in the summer of 2012 along with the other three films in the series: Richard II, Henry IV, Part 2 and Henry V. The four films will also be shown in the U.S. on Great Performances on PBS.

Jeremy Irons via Skype for ‘The Words’ Press Conference at Sundance

Jeremy Irons Zooming in on Bradley Cooper’s Hotness – from USA Today

Jeremy Irons might have been thousands of miles away from the Sundance Film Festival, but he was the life of the party at The Words press conference on Thursday.

Skyping in from his computer in Oxfordshire, England (where he’s about to shoot a new movie), Irons interrupted the press conference at one point to ask to see his co-star Bradley Cooper.

“Could you please turn the camera towards Bradley for me,” Irons said. “My (assistant) is sitting on the floor here and she’s very keen to see him up close.”

People’s reigning Sexiest-Man-Alive Cooper, who was showing some serious Sundance stubble, was finally brought in front of the camera. Irons then coo-ed: “Okay Bradley, now smolder for me.”

Irons puffed away on cigarettes as his image was broadcast on a large screen during the press conference at the Acura Studio in Park City, Utah.

“The advantage I have here is that I can have a cigarette,” he gloated. “The disadvantage is that I cannot hit the ski slopes.”

Irons, 63, also went on to talk about how hard it was to play an old man in the film.

“The hardest thing was to play someone so incredibly old,” he said. “Because you know I’m actually quite young. The reason I have this beard is because I play someone who is also old. It’s a stretch.”

Irons was such a hoot that writer-director Brian Klugman finally announced, “Jeremy will now be doing five-minutes of stand-up.”

Max Irons, Model/Actor, Thinks New York Is More Fashionable Than London

“I think New York is more stylish than London,” 26-year-old UK-native Max Irons said Thursday morning, “I think a lot of people [in London] don’t give a shit about what they wear, but when you’re looking out the window of a taxi in New York, there are stylish people everywhere.”

Appropriately, Irons, who is the son of award-winning actor Jeremy Irons, and I were sitting on the 50th floor of the The London Hotel in New York at the time, looking out at the tops of buildings, “It’s only in the past four or five years I’ve started to get in touch with what New York’s really about. I like it, it feels quite like London,” he explains, “Everything’s bigger and faster here, it’s kind of overwhelming. I remember when I was younger because my godmother is from New York, she’s a travel agent, she used to fly me here every summer.”

Irons was in town for a few days to promote his latest gig: the face of Macy’s private label line INC. “I’m happy with them, which is rare thing,” he insists, “I always feel kind of awkward when I look at pictures of myself. Watching videos of myself is really uncomfortable.” The actor/model is surprisingly modest considering he has already appeared in campaigns for Burberry and Mango. Though modeling was never something he set out to do, “When I first got spotted, it was a bit of a shock. I was at drama school and I had no money, so I did it.” Before becoming a model, Irons worked as a bartender at The Ark in Notting Hill, “I was the head barman. I was so bad, but I would go back if I had to. Hopefully I won’t need to.”

We’ll say he’s in the clear. Next, Irons will appear in “The Host,” Stephanie Meyers of “Twilight” fame’s new project. “I haven’t read the “Twilight” books,” he confesses, “But it’s everywhere so I feel like I know it. Edward, Bella, Jacob, etc. but… I haven’t read them. I am a big reader. I loved “The Host,” Stephanie’s a great writer and it’s science fiction which is up my alley.”
