Jim Sturgess

Biography

American audiences first caught suave and dashing British actor Jim Sturgess via his portrayal of Jude -- the paternally shorn young man who travels to the U.S. amid the raging throes of the late '60s and falls in love with musician Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood) -- in Julie Taymor's hallucinatory Beatles drama Across the Universe (2007). This indeed represented Sturgess' preeminent international bow, but prior to it, he sustained almost a decade of roles in British productions -- mostly telefilms -- including I'm Frank Morgan (2000), Hawkins (2001), and the three installments of the Quest series. He followed up Across The Universe with the gambling thriller 21 and the period drama The Other Boleyn Girl. He lent his voice to Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole in 2010, and in 2011 he appeared opposite Anne Hathaway in the romantic drama One Day. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
