Jeremy Irvine: I Stopped Eating for 'The Railway Man'

Jeremy Irvine flashes a smile while arriving at the ITV studios to make a guest appearance on the This Morning show on Wednesday (January 8) in London, England.

The 23-year-old actor recently opened up about having to loose weight for his role in The Railway Man.

“I had a dietitian but I quickly realized to get where I wanted to be, I was going to have to go beyond what was healthy, so I just more or less stopped eating,” Jeremy revealed to The Telegraph. “I moved back to my parents in the countryside and walked around the fields all day with my script, to burn calories but also to access the isolation which was so important to this character. He had to disappear inside his own head to get away from all the horrible things happening to him physically. I think I scared my mum a bit.”

    He was extremely cute and nerdy in the Railway Man. Very good actor. But Kidman and Colin Firth were not quite right.
