The lead actor of Netflix’s new war drama Munich: The Edge of War talks about his first Broadway performance and the influence of Irish fiddling on jazz.
Do I go on a bit too long? The actor Jeremy Irons queried. Sometimes I can get a little too chatty.
He can keep going on and on with that voice for as long as he likes.
Irons called from his home in Oxfordshire, England, to chat about his role as British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in the film Munich: The Edge of War.
The Netflix film is based on Robert Harris’s historical thriller and depicts the four tense days leading up to the 1938 Munich conference, at which the world’s leaders attempted to prevent war by allowing Hitler to annex the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia, which was home to a large German population. Chamberlain reached an agreement with Nazi Germany in Munich that he said would guarantee peace for all time.
Irons remarked, “I adore reappraisals of history.” Robert was “quite keen” to try to clear the name of Chamberlain. In retrospect, I believe most of us can agree that Chamberlain was stuck between an unfortunate set of circumstances.
Irons has recently decided to work less and enjoy life more in the moment after thinking about his past and the things that have brought him happiness.
He explained, “I act to live, not live to act.”
Irons, now 73, remarked that he was not very good at behaving himself in his 50s, when his chances of landing leading-man roles began to dwindle.
As a result, he focused his artistic energies on restoring his Kilcoe Castle in West Cork, Ireland, which dates back to the 15th century. At present, he is re-creating a cottage on an island a hundred yards offshore, where he swims on occasion.
