Lion film wins Irons an Emmy

Actor Jeremy Irons‘ narration of a wildlife film has won him an Emmy. The winning film is Dereck and Beverly Joubert’s Game Of Lions, which follow the journey of young male lions in the African bush, from the birth to exile from a pride.

This was Irons’ seventh project with filmmakers and conservationists, Dereck and Beverly Joubert and the husband and wife’s eighth. Other collaborations between Irons and the Jouberts include: The Unlikely Leopard, Eye Of The Leopard, and The Last Lions.

“What makes our work with Jeremy resonate with authority and understanding is his relentless insistence on understanding each sentence, each word he delivers, says producer Beverly Joubert.

“Jeremy is a big cat expert as a result and that makes a difference, it makes what he reads believable. When you develop a relationship based on trust and professionalism it endures beyond that present piece of work and in many ways Jeremy has become the voice of our films.”
