‘Sexy’ Tudors make screen return By Emma Jones BBC News, August 1, 2008 Emmy-winning series The Tudors is back for a second series on BBC Two, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the young King Henry VIII. The series chronicles the Tudors’ reign in the style of glossy 1980s soap Dynasty – a glamorous take on the family which ruled England and Wales from 1485-1603. Rhys Meyers, 31, plays one of history’s most charismatic yet despotic monarchs. The Irish-born actor insists producers took a risk making a drama set in...

Meyers: The return of the king By Chris Sullivan Daily Mail, July 27, 2008 Who else to play a swaggering drunken Henry VIII than the swaggering (but only occasionally) drunken Jonathan Rhys Meyers? Jonathan Rhys Meyers walks into the Live photo shoot dressed in a pair of snakeskin cowboy boots, jeans, a tight V-necked T-shirt and a deconstructed designer jacket. Heads immediately turn. Is he drunk? Is he on the rails? How long will he stay? Rhys Meyers has ‘previous’. We’re all fascinated to know how today...

Jonathan Rhys Meyers: Creating a king By Denise Martin Los Angeles Time, June 4, 2008 Jonathan Rhys Meyers gives King Henry VIII chiseled good looks and an intensity to boot. BY NOW, it’s hard not to think of Henry VIII as the smoldering monarch. As played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Showtime’s “The Tudors,” young Henry may as well be a rock star. This king’s got chiseled cheekbones, a protruding pout, piercing blue eyes and a vigorous sex life — Henry and second wife Anne Boleyn claw lustfully at...

The Children of Huang Shi

The Children of Huang Shi By Robert Koehler Variety, May 2, 2008 The heroic true tale of a Brit journalist’s rescue of dozens of orphaned Chinese youth in the face of an advancing Japanese army has become a cloddish if gorgeous-looking wartime adventure epic in “The Children of Huang Shi.” Giving Jonathan Rhys Meyers the kind of manly yet paternal role Spencer Tracy once mastered, this carefully wrought international production relates the basic story of reporter George Hogg without any vibrancy, emotion or style. Late-act romantic touches seem unlikely...

New Woman

Jonathan Rhys Meyers New Woman, December 2007 He’s not handy round the house, but the Irish actor sure gives good shoe When you first start seeing someone it’s a fantastic adventure. You can be the person you’ve always wanted to be. For a while anyway. But it only becomes a real relationship when you see one another’s flaws and love each other regardless. I miss having a girlfriend but I haven’t got time to do much about it. All I do right now is work, so I’ve been single...

August Rush

Lilting ‘August Rush’ is poetry in emotion By Claudia Puig USA TODAY, November 23, 2007 August Rush (* * * out of four) will not be for everyone, but it works if you surrender to its lilting and unabashedly sentimental tale of evocative music and visual poetry. If you choose to focus on the plot’s many contrivances, the film falters. But thanks to some wonderfully appealing and emotional performances by Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Terrence Howard, this urban fairy tale/drama weaves a captivating spell. Director...

August Rush

August Rush By Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times, November 21, 2007 Here is a movie drenched in sentimentality, but it’s supposed to be. I dislike sentimentality where it doesn’t belong, but there’s something brave about the way “August Rush” declares itself and goes all the way with coincidence, melodrama and skillful tear-jerking. I think more sensitive younger viewers, in particular, might really like it. The story is a very free modern adaptation of elements from Oliver Twist. We meet Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore), an 11-year-old who runs away from his...
