Jeremy Irons reappears as the duplicitous Rodrigo on Showtime Sunday with a new season of “The Borgias.”

Irons, who’s had one of the most abundant careers on record, says he almost quit when he was hitting 50. “I found I was doing film work which I was bored by, and I wanted something that would absorb me completely, and I think it had something to do with the fact that in my 30s and 40s I was playing leading roles and then in my late 40s and 50s I was playing guest characters, and smaller roles. I found a ruin (castle) in Ireland, and I spent two years just working on that. I had a large crew but I was running it. And then I began to run out of money because I was paying 40 wages a week, and so I started acting again here and there over the next three years — so like six years over all. It was the greatest project I have done. I came back a slightly different person and started off again.”
