Australian Actors #7: Hugh Jackman




Born: Sydney, NSW, 1968.
Left Australia: 2000
Career went international: After receiving a last-minute call to play Wolverine in the first X-Men film after Doug Scott dropped out. Returned in 2006 to tour Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane with The Boy From Oz, a stage musical about the life of songwriter Peter Allen, after it was a commercial success in the USA, but has since returned to the States.
Now lives: New York.
Best known as: Wolverine (X-Men), Van Helsing (Van Helsing), the father penguin from Happy Feet.
Assumed accents: US-American, allegedly Canadian (but I can't pick up anything particularly Canadian in his accent for X-Men - [livejournal.com profile] thekit, [livejournal.com profile] lucidsavant, do you hear anything I'm missing?).

This is what Hugh Jackman sounds like when he's working:

(Again, this is a non-embeddable clip, but it's well worth clicking through for the CROWNING MOMENT OF AWESOME where David Letterman asks Hugh Jackman whether Australians celebrate Thanksgiving *headdesk*)
