Irvine has a thoughtful answer to the question of what's next: "I played a small role in Jack Whitehall’s The Bad Education Movie, and I would love to do more comedy." I like historical stuff too - I was able to visit the Death Railway with The Railway Man and clear a section. I enjoy the research and playing real people, but there is also a lot of responsibility. This was a feeling I felt with Billionaire Boys Club, because we were portraying real people who are still alive and showing them as they are.
"It was really fun. You can do all the things that your conscience won't let you do in real life. Billionaire Boys Club broke the record for damage - but all in character. I jumped onto a table that we had rented, with disastrous results. "Yeah you guys filmed my house and broken my $50,000 marble table," he said at a two-week-old dinner with a producer.
The table incident did not end Irvine's Hollywood dream. After final reshoots in September for Billionaire Boys Club, the movie will be released later this year. It also stars Kevin Spacey, a young Welsh actor, and Taron Egerton. The Beautiful Fantastic will follow in January 2017 and star Jessica Brown Findlay (Omega Replica) with Andrew Scott. Irvine hopes to return to theatre after this. The London stage may have to wait longer for Irvine, judging from the high demand of his work and the impending date he will be having at a Fleurier watchmaker's table.
"I walked up to his home, knocked and Colin answered the door with a confused expression. "Hi, Jess, Jess had invited me." He replied: "OK, well, I'll make a new space at the table." There were six of us there - Colin's family and two other friends. I was so uncomfortable, but I believe he was playing a joke on me. He was casting The Railway Man, and on that particular night, he called the director to say I could be a good fit for the part.
CARRY THE CANNES
Irvine will never forget the night of his award at Cannes. He says, "It was an enormous deal." "Instead of flying down, we took a roadtrip. I had all my friends sleep in my hotel room. I was invited to a party with Blanca Suarez, the Spanish actress who won Irvine's award.tudor replica We were wearing expensive Omega Replica jewellery and watches that we had borrowed. Cara Delevingne, myself and Blanca Suarez decided to take a boat trip and security grabbed our jewels. I thought that was an indication that we weren't to be trusted, and also a sign of how good the party was.
