Nevermind George! Max Irons is making his royal debut this weekend on Starz’ new historical drama, The White Queen.
Based on a series of best-selling novels by Phillipa Gregory, The White Queen centers around the war for the throne that erupts after the reigning king of England, Edward IV (Irons), goes against his advisers to marry widowed commoner Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson).
“He was quite impulsive, quite reckless, quite romantic, and it got him in a bit of trouble,” Irons says about his character. “But he was a very good politician and a very good military man, so he could always deal with the consequences of his recklessness.”
So is Irons as tough and shrewd as his on-screen persona? Not quite. During his EW Pop Culture Personality Test, the actor admitted to tearing up during the Curb Your Enthusiasm finale and being scarred after watching The Last of the Mohicans as a child.
For more on Irons’ pop-culture obsessions — including his most prized possession (let’s just say Justin Bieber is involved) and the guiltiest song on his iPod — watch the video below.

NEW YORK: British writer Philippa Gregory and actor Max Irons provide some insight on the upcoming Starz series The White Queen, the challenges and rewards of period drama and the world’s enduring fascination with British royalty.
In 15th century England, against the backdrop of the War of the Roses, three women, Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville, are caught up in the brutal battle for the throne. British writer Philippa Gregory chronicled their stories in her bestselling The Cousins’ War series of historical novels, which is now the basis of a ten-part drama from Company Pictures.
The White Queen, starring Max Irons as the young King Edward IV, premiered on BBC One earlier this summer and is set to roll out in the U.S. on Starz in August, with Starz Worldwide Distribution representing the rights in most international markets.
