Max, who once expressed his thoughts on gay marriage all the way back in 2013, pursued his acting career without his parent’s consent. According to an article published by, Max’s parents, Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack asked him to avoid a career in Hollywood. An excerpt from the stated article read,

"They immediately said, `You will most likely have a life of unhappiness, financial turmoil, jealousy, and paranoia,' " says Irons, who studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (Daniel Craig and Ewan McGregor are alums). "But when your parents give advice, your brain goes into a certain mode."

In another instance, he implied that people hated his guts because of his parents' industry connection. In October 2018 interview with ITV's Lorraine, he quipped,

"I think in the earlier days of my career, people were more eager to meet me. But then, they were also quick to say, 'He's taking the easy route, following his parents...' if I didn't deliver."

Speaking of things wrong with the industry, the Being Julia actor in a separate interview sounded critical of the short attention span surrounding the Me Too Movement. He told the Press Association:-

"I hope that this feeling of positivity and this feeling that the ground is being broken in terms of transparency and openness, and a sense of safety that a woman can come forward with an experience and feel safe..."

The thirty-one-year-old actor is famous for making an appearance in Red Riding Hood (2011), The Host (2013), The White Queen (2013), and The Riot Club (2014). Similarly, his recent acting credit includes Tutankhamun (2016), Bitter Harvest (2017), Terminal (2017), Crooked House (2017) and The Wife (2017).

Most recently, he starred as a lead Joe Turner in AT&T series, Condor, which is inspired by the 1975 novel, Three Days of Candor.
