Date of Birth: 1990
Jeremy Irvine grew up in Gamlingay, a rural village in Cambridgeshire, England. He studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art but was eager to begin working, so he hired a cameraman to help him film a show reel, that he then presented to agents as examples of his professional work. Jeremy appeared onstage in the Royal Shakespeare Company's Dunsinane before landing his first onscreen role as a regular on the Disney Channel series Life Bites, which was filmed in London.
His next job was to be his major motion picture debut, starring in Steven Spielberg's War Horse for Dreamworks Pictures. He plays the lead role of Albert, a boy whose beloved horse is sold to the army during WWI.
Since then, Jeremy has not stopped working. He filmed a role in the the independent feature Now Is Good opposite Dakota Fanning and played Pip in BBC Films' Great Expectations, directed by Mike Newell and also starring Ralph Fiennes and Helena Bonham Carter. Next up, he'll play the younger version of Colin Firth's character, Eric Lomax in the Lionsgate film The Railway Man (2013), which is scheduled to begin filming in 2012.
Jeremy continues to make his home in England.
