According to the Irish Post and Irish Central, Jonathan is to be honoured for his work in film this October in London!
The date is set for the 2014 Irish Post Awards gala, and actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers will take the stage upon accepting the 2014 Legend Award. The Irish Post is the biggest selling national newspaper to the Irish in Britain, widely loved and respected by the Irish community. Award winning Northern Irish broadcaster and journalist Eamonn Holmes will be returning as Master of Ceremonies, and this year actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be receiving the 2014 Legend Award. “Jonathan has worked very hard from an early age in life and the story of his own career development is fascinating,” Loane said. “We are delighted to be able to recognize and honor his remarkable accomplishments.”
Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ achievements in film and television are to be recognised at this year’s Irish Post Awards. The Cork-raised actor will receive the Irish Legend award in recognition of his 20-year long career. He will also attend the black-tie event in London this October
HUGE congratulations to Jonathan, I can’t think of anyone more deserving for the award nor anything more fitting to pay tribute to his 20 years in the film industry ♥
The trailer that was previously released for the Spanish promotion of Another Me last month has now been released
I posted this a few days ago but after having the site on a semi hiatus I decided to post earlier than planned. I needed a bit of a break from the internet and it’s dramas so took it upon myself to stay away but I’m back for now with a bit of news and news about the sites gallery
Cork-born Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain were initially cast for the film, but both had to pull out due to scheduling difficulties – Source x
At first I wondered if it was true but when I looked back at an article about Byrd and the Bees they’re both filming in September so it sounds as though, at least on Jonnys part, it is unfortunately true. I was really looking forward to this as the cast attached are wonderful in my opinion so naturally I’m quite disappointed. Nevermind, we still have others to look forward to I’m sure and the Byrd and the Bees role certainly sounds as though Jonny will get more screen time which is always nice to know
In other news, the gallery.. unfortunately some caps and maybe some projects will have to be deleted due to them involving nudity. I am still waiting to hear about what ‘nudity’ is classed as under our hosts regulations so if caps and projects go missing don’t worry, I’ll know all about it. It’s highly likely The Governess, Belle du Seigneur, Tangled and possibly
some most of The Tudors episodes will go the journey unfortunately as I simply do not have the time to reupload them to an entirely separate gallery ran by an entirely different host
After quite a number of people asked me to upload here is the very brief appearance of Jonny from this weeks episode for this who haven’t seen it
A picture from a photoshoot session Jonny did back in 2008 with photographer Tony McGee has been added to the gallery

Thanks to my friend Renee for her help in getting this. I know a lot of you have had trouble watching it, myself included so I hope this all works for you. I’ve also added a few screen captures from it to the gallery. Enjoy!

According to The Wrap Jonathan has joined the cast of an indie movie called Byrd and the Bees which will be directed by Finola Hughes. No more details as to what role he will be playing but it sounds as though it will be male lead (as it should be *does little dance*). More information about the project below
Qoa Entertainment is producing the movie which Finola Hughes will directed from a script by Christine Fry. Tracy Spiridakos, who starred on NBC’s “Revolution,” is set to play the female lead opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Qoa Entertainment’s romantic comedy “Byrd & the Bees,” The Wrap has learned. Finola Hughes will direct from a script by Christine Fry, who is also producing the indie movie. The duo previously collaborated on “The Bet.” Spiridakos will play Rebecca Byrd, a young woman who travels to Scotland to find and meet her biological father and winds up meeting her dream guy along the way. Production is scheduled to start in September in Scotland.
Roland Emmerich’s gay-rights film Stonewall has added Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman and Joey King to the cast ahead of the start of production. The film, which will star Jeremy Irvine, tells the story of the riots of June 1969 after police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. Irvine plays Danny Winters who flees to New York, leaving behind his beloved sister (King). Homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the watering hole of the local drag queens, gays, lesbians, and everything in between: the Stonewall Inn. At the bar, Danny meets the suave Trevor (Rhys Meyers) before catching the eye of Ed Murphy (Perlman), Stonewall’s repulsive manager who colludes with corrupt police, exploits homeless youth for financial gain, and is even suspected to have had a hand in some of their “disappearances.” It all spirals out of control when the police unexpectedly raid Stonewall. In a storm of anger and with the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born.
