Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Celebrating 15 years!

Wow. 15 years!

It’s very hard to believe, but the JRMfansite has now been up and running in some form for 15 years! That makes this website a dinosaur in internet years.

originalThe original website was hosted free on Tripod (and shocker, it’s also still around!) It was a single page with one little photo of Jonathan (see to the right) and we still weren’t sure if his last name was Rhys-Meyers, Rhys Myers, or Rhys (no hyphen) Meyers. It was my attempt to find out more information about this young Irish actor after being floored by his performance in “The Maker”.

Fun stats!

JRMfansite
It’s gone through many redesigns and exploded in size. And it’s thanks to all of you long time and new fans that the JRMfansite is still going strong after all these years! It hasn’t always been easy but it has been incredibly rewarding because of all of you!

Ultimately, the site continues because of Jonathan. My early belief in his talent and hunch he would be an actor to definitely watch in the coming years has certainly been true! Watching his career rise and seeing him take on challenging and unique roles that few would dare has been a pleasure. He’s had ups and downs during these last 15 years, but this fansite has always remained supportive and respectful. I’m proud of that and have been very happy to provide this resource to new and old fans alike.

There’s so much to look forward to next year with new film and TV roles. 2013 just might be the year of JRM! It’s a joy to see Jonathan healthy and thriving as he gets back to working on all these new projects. The JRMfansite continues to be a celebration of this incredible actor and happily serves one of the coolest fandoms around! Thank you for all the support, emails, comments and for visiting through the years!

    Completely agreed Alyse, ever since December of last year I have said 2012/13 would be his year and boy isn’t the positiveness paying off! It was hard to have nothing to post about for almost 2 years but then I think if you’re 100% dedicated to what you’re doing like what we are it isn’t hard to find something to keep the site going and to keep the visitors coming back. He’s been through a lot but I’m proud to say I’m a fan of his and that I have supported him to the best of my ability, I really am. I hope ours is still around for our 15th anniversary (although that’s some way off.. 23rd March 2023 if I’m right, oh my!)
    Congratulations again, site pard! <3

    I’ve only known this site for about two years, but I love it! You do a great job and I recommend it a lot to people I meet. Usually strangers figure out I love Jonny pretty quick after I start talking, LOL!

    Thank you for all the work that goes into this wonderful JRM site, and for the 15 years of sharing all sorts of yummy Johnny goodness.
    I happened upon this site a few years back I think; found it to be the most informative and respectful. I do not know if Jonathan knows of this site, but if he does I am sure he would approve.

    Cheers!

    THANKS SO MUCH! I’ve been checking in occasionally since around ’99 or so! (Was still crushed out from “Velvet Goldmine”–still am, actually!) Keep up the great work charting his progress & adventures!
