Max Irons Promotes Red Riding Hood

Red Riding Hood director, Catherine Hardwicke, traveled to England to audition actors for Henry.

Hardwicke says, “Max Irons walks into this casting session, and he’s a very impressive guy. He stands 6 foot 3 and he’s simultaneously charismatic, down-to-earth and soulful. And then I asked about his family and learn that he’s Jeremy Irons’ son…

“Sold.”

Here is the transcript:

Q:  What was your favorite part about being able to work with Catherine Hardwicke as your director?

Max:  She’s got a child-like imagination and an infectious energy, which is what you need when you’re doing a movie about a wolf.

Q:  Did you ever read Little Red Riding Hood when you were little?

Max:  I never read it. I would have been told it, but the thing about fairy tales is that you never remember the first time you heard it.

Q:  What are the differences and similarities between the Little Red Riding Hood story and the film?

Max: Forget what you know about Little Red Riding Hood and leave it at the door. Ours is much edgier and darker and far more exciting.

Q:  What was it like working with the legendary Gary Oldman?

Max:  It was amazing watching a seasoned professional like him. You learn so much.

Q:   How did you guys make the characters you played in Red Riding Hood your own? Were they easy to connect with?

Max:  Aside from the wolf, which requires the imagination, a love triangle in one form or another is something I’m sure we’ve all experienced.

Q:   What do you look for in a girl? Does she need to wear a red hood? LOL

Max:  Yes, she has to wear a red hood. It’s incredibly important.

Q:  Given the choice, would you rather be a werewolf or a vampire? Why?

Max:  I’d rather be a robot. Way cooler.

Q:  What was the most embarrassing moment while filming Red Riding Hood?

Max:  Amanda Seyfried, at any opportunity, tries to embarrass you. So many. Mainly about me being English.

Q: If you could have played any character in film history or worked with any actor/director, who would it be?

Max:  I would have liked to work with Stanley Kubrick. I’ll get back to you re: character.

Q: You have chosen this career despite your parents’ “optimistic remarks”. Have you ever experienced what they warned you about?

Max:  Good question. Yes. You know, acting is an unstable business. You have to have thick skin and remember why you’re doing what you do.

Q: What was your favorite set/scene of the movie? Or your favorite prop you were able to use? Why?

Max:  Riding through a forest on a massive white stallion. Not really a prop, but hey, good fun.

Q:  When will you be on the London stage again? You are so brilliant.

Max:  As soon as possible. When I have acting dreams, it always involves stage.

Q:  Do you have a Twitter of your own???

Max:  I don’t. Wouldn’t know what to do with it.

Q:  Any fun memories from set?

Max:  Listening to Gary Oldman endlessly, I mean ENDLESSLY, singing Beatles covers.

Q:  If you could only take one item with you on an island, what would it be?

Max:  A special girl.

Q:  Finally, why should everyone go see Red Riding Hood on March 11th?

Max: Because it’s going to be a dark re-imagining of something that means so much to people. Plus we’ve got an amazing cast.

Max Irons in L’Uomo Vogue

Max Irons is featured in an article and photo spread in the July/August 2010 issue of L’Uomo Vogue.

At 24, the son of the famous English actor Jeremy is ready for his début

Jeremy Irons‘ 24 year-old son, Maximilian, known as Max, is almost a newcomer to the silver screen.

His curriculum to date: three years of acting school, an appearance of just a few seconds in István Szabo’s Being Julia, a small part in Dorian Gray by Oliver Parker and two (equally small) parts in the theatre, in Mike Poulton’s Wallenstein last summer at the Minerva in Chichester and in Artist Descending a Staircase last December at the Old Red Lion in London.

Now his big chance comes from director Catherine Hardwicke who chose Robert Pattinson for Twilight, launching into the stratosphere a young English actor who, until then, could only boast a few appearances in the saga of Harry Potter.

Now it is Max’s turn, together with Shiloh Fernandez (a 25 year old American the director had already taken into consideration for the lead role in Twilight).  He has been chosen for the cast of a new project entitled Red Riding Hood, a Gothic horror rereading of the story of Little Red Riding Hood which will probably appear in American cinemas in April next year.
