Jeremy Irons: In Conversation at University of Michigan

Jeremy Irons gave a talk for theatre students at the University of Michigan, on Saturday 18 November 2017.  The informal interview/conversation was conducted by University of Michigan Assistant Professor of Theatre, Gillian Eaton.  Jeremy and Gillian attended the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School together.  The talk was held at the Arthur Miller Theatre in the Walgreen Drama Center, on the north campus of the University of Michigan.

Jeremy spoke to the students for about an hour and a half and he took questions from the students.  Jeremy discussed Justice League, “living to act” vs. “acting to live”, the differences between how film auditions used to be and how they are now, American theatre audiences vs. European theatre audiences, among many other subjects and anecdotes.  Jeremy stressed that what acting students do with their time when they’re not working is very important, as it informs them as a person and enhances their performances.
