Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers first gained notoriety for his lead role in Todd Haynes' "Velvet Goldmine" (1998), a surreal examination of 1970s glam rock in which he portrayed a sort of fictional hybrid of David Bowie and Iggy Pop. Meyers gave captivating performances in several controversial and little-seen films including Ang Lee's "Ride with the Devil" (1999) and the screen adaptation of "Prozac Nation" (2000) before receiving a profile boost in the British hit "Bend it Like Beckham" (2004). Following an Emmy-nominated performance as "Elvis" (2005) in the miniseries of the same name, Rhys Meyers began to appear in high-profile American features "Match Point" (2005) and "Mission: Impossible III (2006). For his challenging work portraying the voracious King Henry VIII in "The Tudors" (Showtime, 2007-2010), Rhys Meyers received across-the-board accolades. However, despite his well-received work in film and television, Meyers' reputation as a somewhat troubled actor with multiple rehab stints under his belt would occasionally cast a shadow of uncertainty over his promising career, but these struggles never diminished his raw talent.
