Jeremy William Fredric Smith (born 18 June 1990), better known as Jeremy Irvine, is an English actor.
In 2011, he starred as the lead character in the epic war film War Horse, which turned Irvine into an overnight film star. In 2012, Irvine portrayed Pip in the adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. He also earned widespread critical acclaim for his role in the independent film Now Is Good (2012), leading critics to list him among Hollywood's fastest-rising stars.
Irvine earned a reputation as a method actor after he went for two months without food, losing around two stone (13 kg), and performed his own torture scene stunts in The Railway Man (2013). He has since starred in A Night in Old Mexico (2014), The World Made Straight (2014), The Woman in Black: Angel of Death (2015), Stonewall (2015), and will portray Daniel Grigori in the film adaptation of the young adult novel Fallen (2016).
Irvine has had diabetes mellitus type 1 since the age of six: "When I was six, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I was on four injections a day, which I administered myself." "I can eat whatever I want now. I was dreading my little brothers, Lawrence and Toby being diagnosed with diabetes too." Irvine has been involved in trials with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to test an artificial pancreas, a form of automatic glucose meter attached to a portable insulin pump. The tests took place at Addenbrooke's Hospital with the University of Cambridge during 2005 and 2007. Irvine introduced his experiences with diabetes to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall during a visit to the Cambridge Welcome Trust Clinical Research Facility on 7 February 2012. He was again present with the Duchess on 31 January 2013 at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's inpatient adolescent ward, after she had become president of the JDRF in 2012.
Irvine avoids the spotlight and tries to maintain privacy, once saying that "I realised very quickly that I didn't want to be famous, so I don't go to Mahiki, I just go down the pub with all my mates". When asked about his rising fame, he said: "When War Horse came out, I had maybe a month of people stopping me in the street, then it died down. I try to ignore all that and pretend none of it exists. We're only acting. The work my mum does, a lot of it is re-housing homeless people, that's a real job. I play make-believe and dressing up for a living!" In an interview with the Daily Mail to promote War Horse, he described his ideal life: "There's nothing nicer than coming back to your village, where people like my mum's friends take the mick out of me. I prefer that to the craziness of Hollywood."
