Birth Name: Max Irons
Born: 10/17/1985
Birth Place: London, England, GB

In 2009, he enjoyed his first substantive film role with a bit part as a 19th century libertine in Oliver Parker's adaptation of "Dorian Gray," but remained off-screen for two more years before taking a supporting turn as a privileged young man in the fantasy "Red Riding" (2011) opposite Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman. Irons then played against type as a drug-addicted pornographer in "The Runaway" (Sky 1, 2011) before signing with Macy's INC to serve as the "face" of their summer 2012 advertising campaign. The exposure clearly paid off for Irons, who subsequently landed his first major film experience as the love interest to alien host Saoirse Ronan in "The Host" (2013), Andrew Niccol's ill-fated adaptation of the science fiction novel by Twilight (2005-2008) series author Stephenie Meyer. Irons then rebounded by returning to television for the historical drama series "The White Queen" (BBC 1, 2013), which cast him as King Edward IV of England.
