Biography

A proper bloke hailing from the rural English hamlet of Gamlingay, Jeremy Irvine burst from relative obscurity to overnight fame after starring in Steven Spielberg's epic feature "War Horse" (2012). Prior to this breakout role, the stage and screen actor was best known by British television audiences for his work on Disney Channel's popular comedy-sketch series, "Life Bites" (2008- ). After the London-based actor made his American "War Horse" film debut, he was cast as Pip in yet another adaptation of "Great Expectations" (BBC, 2012), co-starring Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter. The burgeoning star also scored leading roles in the independent film "Now Is Good" (2012) opposite Dakota Fanning. From Spielberg snatching him from international obscurity, to landing leading roles in impressive motion pictures, Irvine quickly became one of the most buzzed about British actors in years.
