Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in mourning for his mother, who has died days after he was arrested in Ireland.
It is thought the actor was close to his mother
Geraldine Meyers-O'Keeffe, 50, died in hospital in Cork on Tuesday after suffering from a short illness.
Her son, recently seen in BBC Two's The Tudors, was arrested in Dublin airport earlier this week after allegedly being refused entry to a flight.
The 30-year-old was charged with public drunkenness and breach of the peace ordered to appear in court in December.
Rhys Meyers, who is said to have been close to his mother, had been in Dublin promoting his latest film, August Rush.
The movie, which opens in the UK on Friday, also stars Robin Williams.
In April, the Irish actor was admitted to a rehab clinic in California.
Speaking to news agency The Associated Press last year, he said he found it hard to socialise in Ireland because of its hard-drinking pub culture.
"I gave up drinking a few years ago, and this is the first time I've spent time in my country trying not to drink," he said.
The actor, who has also starred in Woody Allen's Match Point and Mission Impossible III, vowed he would "never drink again" but admitted it was "hard to avoid".
