Digital Spy has a story about Max Irons in relation to a certain role he turned down. Irons has been in the midst of doing promotion for The White Queen on BBC and Starz. Here is the portion of the interview that is the most interesting:
He told DuJour magazine (via The Mirror): “I was recently up for a large part in a franchise, a very well-established franchise, and I said, ‘I can’t do it’. No matter how you spin it to me, it was a version of the two parts I played before [in Red Riding Hood and The Host].
“I’m very grateful these films got my foot in the door, but if I do it again, I’ll want to quit acting.”
It looks like he is done playing the young, handsome man in a love story. But what if a sequel ever gets made for The Host? Will he reprise the role if there is a role to reprise?
My guess for the well-established movie series is The Hunger Games and possibly he was offered the role of Finnick.
