Irish aristocrat?

Farewell to my Irish aristocratic dream - Times Online: "John Hurt’s sense of himself has always been wrapped around a family myth and to prove – or disprove – its truth he agreed to take part in the genealogical TV series Who Do You Think You Are?

Like many of the celebrities who have agreed to a televised trawl through their family history, Hurt was in for a surprise. The resulting film is a detective yarn, a surprising psychological study of one of our greatest actors – star of The Naked Civil Servant and The Elephant Man – and a reminder, if one needed it, of how much sway class still holds over the British, even though we are supposedly all middle-class now."

It seems he was set up,
