Max Irons – JustJared.com Exclusive Interview
JustJared.com: What’s been your favorite off-screen moment of shooting?
MI: It would be hanging out in New Mexico going hiking. I like to go by myself. I get crazy on set sometimes being surrounded by people, so every once in a while I just have to get out.
JJ: Do you have a favorite prop from set?
MI: No, I didn’t steal any props. Getting to play with the guns was quite fun. But no, I didn’t have many props.
JJ: Did the guns actually shoot anything?
MI: They shot blanks if you wanted them to.
JJ: Describe Diane Kruger in one word.
MI: Stunning. Oh, I can do better than that. Mesmeric.
JJ: Saoirse Ronan?
MI: Effortlessly talented. Two words, I know (laughs).
JJ: Jake Abel?
JJ: Did you and Jake play pranks on one another?
MI: He’s a little sh-t. He loves playing pranks. He in fact opens pranks up to the world of Twitter. He decided to tell the world that I’m terrified of insects. We had a book signing the other day with 1,000 people, lots of whom threw plastic insects, or in some cases real insects, onto the table.
JJ: What’s the last movie you saw?
MI: The last movie I saw was Life of Pi. I loved it. I thought it was amazing.
JJ: What’s the last song you downloaded?
MI: Woodkid’s new album. It was amazing. It’s a French guy. He used to direct videos for Katy Perry and write lyrics for Rihanna. He decided to make his own music. He’s f-cking awesome.
JJ: Tell us more about your upcoming TV series.
MI: It’s called The White Queen. It’s about The War of the Roses, which took place in the 15th century, particularly violent period in history and a politically unstable period in history. I play King Edward IV – a bit of a womanizer, a very intelligent guy. And it tracks him and his wife over the course of their final 20 years.
JJ: Do you have a favorite off-screen moment from filming the series?
MI: They offered to give me the horse that I rode.
JJ: Did you take it?
MI: I didn’t! Because I thought I’d be unkind keeping a horse in London. Where are you going to keep it? The poor guy’s going to be in the stable the whole time. But it was nice because I was the only one they offered.
JJ: What’s Tarquin Wong up to?
MI: Tarquin Wong! Where did you get that from (laughs)? He was this kid I went to school with when I was 13. He was a gymnast and a diving champion. I beat him in a dance competition, dancing to the Grease megamix with a combination of swing and break dance. At the time, it felt like my finest hour. When I look back, it makes me uncomfortable.
JJ: Let’s see you break dance!
MI: No (laughs)! I was more flexible in those days. Now, I’m taller and ganglier.
