Biography

A multifaceted talent hailing from England who divided his time between music and acting, Jim Sturgess enjoyed a steady string of television and radio appearances before his breakout role in the acclaimed musical, "Across the Universe" (2007), which showcased his many talents and put him on the international map. Because of the attention he received from that film, Sturgess was able to display his skills further in such American and U.K. films as "21" (2008) and "The Other Boleyn Girl" (2008). Making headway in Hollywood, he had a prominent supporting role opposite Harrison Ford and Ashley Judd in the immigration-themed "Crossing Over" (2009) and starred in the British-made horror thriller "Heartless" (2009). Sturgess went on to join Ed Harris and Colin Farrell in Peter Weir's acclaimed wartime drama "The Way Back" (2010) and starred opposite Anne Hathaway in the romantic misfire "One Day" (2011). He received a spattering of criticism for his portrayal of Asian characters in the sci-fi epic "Cloud Atlas" (2012), which actually was not the first time since he was slapped on the wrist for a similar portrayal in "21." Regardless of those minor blips, Sturgess was a uniquely gifted performer who achieved international success in a short time thanks to significant appeal on both sides of the Atlantic.
