Jeremy Irons attending the opening reception of the 2012 Art Market Budapest on 7 November 2012.
Jeremy was interviewed at the Art Market Budapest opening and it aired on Hungarian radio: http://hangtar.radio.hu/kossuth

Magyar Radio- What captures you?
Jeremy Irons- It’s very personal I think what captures you in art. The great thing about this show is the different artists. That so many different artists’ work are exhibited so I would be very surprised if somebody wouldn’t find a piece that he likes. It’s fantastic even if sometimes the meaning of two objects next to each other is completely different. It’s true that there’s only one or two objects from the same artist, but you get inspired. For example, I saw a painting from this artist from Budapest and I’ll ask for further information about where I could find more of his works. So, I hope that everyone who has an opportunity, not only from Hungary, but from Austria, Poland, Slovenia and Slovakia will come and see these pictures and will find something they like. What that thing is is personal. I was captured by a picture because it was created in such a beautiful style. There are colours in it and it tells a story, it conveys a feeling. But my taste is not everybody else’s.
Magyar Radio- I was wondering if artists can be distinguished on the basis of where they are coming from. Which country or region?
Jeremy Irons- No, I don’t think you can identify their origin. If you see the pictures in the National Gallery here in Budapest, you will see something similar as in Prague. You can feel some Central European effect that you won’t meet in Paris or London at artists from the same age. Maybe the approach was more romantic. But as for modern artwork, it’s very difficult to distinguish. Perhaps, there’s some kind of humour in the Central European art that you can’t find in the same form in Western Europe. Humour I like.
Magyar Radio- Working here you perhaps gained some personal experience about this mentality?
Jeremy Irons- Yes, to a certain extent. And I am very happy that I could experience it.

The Borgias takes top honours at Canada’s Gemini Awards
At a star-studded gala Wednesday night, 7 September 2011, The Borgias won the Gemini Award for best dramatic series.
When it premiered in April, The Borgias, a period drama full of sex and scheming, grabbed the attention of 1.3 million viewers in Canada.
Jeremy Irons accepted the award via pre-recorded video message.
The Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television presented 61 Gemini Awards Wednesday night, 31st August 2011, at the second of three galas. Programs in the categories of drama, comedy, variety and children’s or youth programming were honoured in Toronto.
The Borgias received three awards in Wednesday night’s ceremony.
Winners from Wednesday night’s ceremony:
- Best direction in a dramatic series: Jeremy Podeswa for The Borgias
- Francois Seguin wins Best Production Design/Art Direction in a Non-Fiction Program/Series for The Borgias.
– The Borgias – The Poisoned Chalice/The Assassin ….. Best Production Design or Art Direction in a Fiction Program or Series
Before the awards were handed out, best director nominee Jeremy Podeswa — who won for “The Borgias” — described the Gemini bash as a favourite get-together for members of Canada’s tight TV industry.
He compared it to the Emmys, where he was nominated last year for his work on “The Pacific.”
“It feels like much more of a family kind of thing,” said Podeswa, who added he would be unable to attend this year because he would be in Ireland directing “Game of Thrones.”
“The Geminis have always been a place where I immediately felt comfortable and at home.”
The Gemini Awards culminate with the Sept. 7 gala on CBC-TV. Comedy superstar Russell Peters will host, with presenters set to include Catherine O’Hara, Alan Thicke, Hugh Dillon and Priestley.
A Ralph Lauren POLO tie once owned by English Bafta Nominated and Academy Award winning Actor Jeremy Irons has been donated to the Sellebrity UK online auction site, in support of The Prince’s Trust charity.

The tie is personally signed by Jeremy on the inside.
