Abstract (Document Summary)

Jeremy Irons starred as Charles Ryder, an officer in the British Army during World War II, who recalls his friendship with the flamboyant, self-destructive Sebastian (Anthony Andrews), whom he met when they were both students at Oxford, and his relationship with Sebastian's very wealthy Catholic family who reside at the opulent castle Brideshead.

[Charles Sturridge], who was only 28 and had very little directing experience before "Brideshead," had only nine days of preparation from the day he got the job to when production was to resume. To make matters more complicated, the final episode had to be shot first because of [Laurence Olivier]'s schedule. And there was no script.

He's remained close with a lot of the cast members. In fact, he's been married 17 years to "Brideshead" star Phoebe Nicholls, with whom he has three children. "We are quite close," Sturridge says, laughing. "[Derek Granger] [Granger] is godfather to my children."
