Video Interview: Jeremy Irvine - Young Star of Spielberg's 'War Horse'
by Alex Billington
December 20, 2011
Meet Jeremy Irvine. He plays Albert in Steven Spielberg's War Horse, the role of a lifetime to launch a budding young actor's career. I'm a Spielberg fanatic and enjoyed War Horse and jumped (no pun intended) at an opportunity to speak with Jeremy, the young lead, when it was offered. With the release coming this weekend, here is my interview with Jeremy, who's now 21 years old and looks a bit older than he does in the film. We have a great chat about making War Horse and his love for acting all around, including a story about a summer of riding horses with fellow stars Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. View below!
Here's the interview with Jeremy Irvine, who plays Albert in Spielberg's War Horse, shot on my Flip:
As he says in the interview, War Horse is indeed his first acting role in a feature film, though he's currently shooting Mike Newell's Great Expectations as Pip. I was impressed by his performance in War Horse, as I also trust in Spielberg to cast a strong lead actor, especially for a film like this where the character goes on a journey. Jeremy Irvine was born in Cambridgeshire, England and attended the National Youth Theatre and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. I'm very glad that I got to interview him. I left this video in its uncut form as I think it always captures the true experience of meeting and chatting with Jeremy. War Horse arrives in US theaters starting Christmas Day, December 25th, this weekend - see it when you can.
