Renowned British actor Jeremy Irons is preparing to visit Greece again but not to perform in a theatrical play, as he did 4 years ago and enchanted the audience in the Concert Hall of Athens with his reading of the role of Ebenezer Scrooge from "A Christmas Story" by Charles Dickens.
    Jeremy Irons will arrive for the premiere of his film "Night Train to Lisbon" by Danish director Bille August whom we know from the film "The House of the Spirits." The actor, aged 65, will be in Athens from 18 to 21 September at the invitation of Hollywood Entertainment - the company that holds the rights for the film in Greece.
