Jeremy Irons earned a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nomination for his role in The Hollow Crown, which Great Performances broadcast earlier this fall. Irons was recognized for his role as Henry IV in the miniseries.
“It was a real pleasure to play Henry IV on film surrounded by such a strong cast; and for Richard Eyre’s production to touch so many, reinforces Shakespeare’s relevance to today’s audience. For my performance to be included among those nominated by my peers in the Actors Guild is a great honor,” said Irons.
