Birthplace: Camden, London, England, UK

Born Maximilian Paul Diarmuid Irons in the London, England borough of Camden on Oct. 17, 1985, Max Irons is the scion of one of the most celebrated acting families in the United Kingdom. His parents are Oscar winning British actor Jeremy Irons and Tony-nominated Irish actress Sinéad Cusack, while his grandparents were the acclaimed Irish stage performers Cyril Cusack and Mary Margaret Kiely. Despite this bloodline, Irons was initially fearful of following in his family's footsteps, due in part to his dyslexia, which made public speaking a challenge. But after successfully memorizing a 30-page play by Neil LaBute for a drama festival, the 16-year-old Irons decided to pursue a life in drama. He initially taught performance in Nepal, then made his screen debut as a featured extra in "Being Julia" (2004) before taking formal training at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2008. To support himself during this period, Irons worked as a model for such labels as Burberry and Mango.
