Biography

When Josh Helman's professional acting career started up at the age of 21, it wasn't assumed that this Australian actor would make a smooth transition to American cinema despite the hopes of a Mel Gibson-like transition. His debut role was on the Australian soap opera "Home and Away" (Seven Network 1988- ) in 2007. After a five-episode run, Helman appeared in a few more Australian projects, including the Oscar-nominated crime thriller "Animal Kingdom" (2010) and a guest appearance on the long-running Australian TV show "McLeod's Daughters" (Nine Network 2001-09). After that, Helman began to make his way to America, first with the Steven Spielberg-produced mini-series "The Pacific" (HBO 2010), a war epic in which he appeared in five episodes. Soon after, he was cast across from Tom Cruise in "Jack Reacher" (2012) and appeared as young William Stryker in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" (2014). At that same time, he still was involved in Australian film, appearing in the Australian rules football drama "Blinder" (2013) in between his roles on "Jack Reacher" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." He even managed to find a way to blend his Australian roots with his American dreams with an appearance in the follow-up to the cult classic Australian film franchise Mad Max in "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015) as the character Slit. Helman also costarred in the dramatic mini-series "Flesh and Bone" (Starz 2015), created by "Breaking Bad" writer/producer Moira Walley-Beckett.
