Hardly anyone knows who Jonathan Rhys Meyers is, but he could soon be Britain's answer to Leonardo DiCaprio. Pretty, young, talented and painfully cool, he excited a great deal of media attention at Cannes. Reporters there found him fairly inarticulate and with nothing much to say - perfect for a sex icon-to-be. He co-stars in three films this week: Velvet Goldmine, The Disappearance Of Finbar and The Governess. ——————————————————————————————————1/7—— by Victor Olliver NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Film Local films Planet Sound Stage

At 21 Jonathan Rhys Meyers is on the verge of stardom, with Velvet Goldmine out on release after months of hype. The Cork-raised actor plays Brian Slade, a character supposedly based on David Bowie. The Times thinks he looks like Bowie, but there is no resemblance in the flesh. "Originally the script was inspired by Bowie," he admits, contradicting the claims of director Todd Haynes. ——————————————————————————————————2/7—— Velvet Goldmine 463 Titanic video 465 NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Film Local films Planet Sound Stage

Jonathan Rhys Meyers denies he mimics David Bowie in Velvet Goldmine - "I didn't look at glam rock videotapes while making the film," he says. Without doubt, though, the movie sends up the relationship between Bowie and Iggy Pop, with the suggestion that Bowie l—y have "borrowed" Pop's persona for Ziggy Stardust. "Brian Slade's character was an aspect of my own," says Rhys Meyers.

In The Governess Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays troubled student Henry. He says he drew on his own childhood: "I see Henry as the type of boy I'd like to have been. He has guts." Co-star Minnie Driver constantly rejects him in the film, which affected their off-screen relationship. "That rejected feeling never seemed to go away when we were hanging around on the set," he says. ——————————————————————————————————4/7—— On Stage 450 Big Screen 460 NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Film Local films Planet Sound Stage
