Jim Sturgess Actor
Following his breakout role as lead character Jude Feeny in Julie Taymor’s Beatles-scored fantasia Across the Universe, Jim Sturgess has emerged as one of the entertainment industry’s most multifaceted young actors working in a variety of film genres.
He followed that acclaimed musical with lead roles in Robert Luketic’s hit drama 21, opposite Kate Bosworth and producer Kevin Spacey; and Kari Skogland’s fact-based IRA tale Fifty Dead Men Walking, with Ben Kingsley, which earned Mr. Sturgess a Vancouver Film Critics Award nomination for Best Actor.
His other films include Justin Chadwick’s The Other Boleyn Girl, with Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson; Wayne Kramer’s Crossing Over; and, in voiceover, Zack Snyder’s Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole.
Mr. Sturgess won the Fantasporto Best Actor Award at the 2010 Oporto International Film Festival for his performance in Philip Ridley’s Heartless. He was most recently seen in Peter Weir’s epic adventure The Way Back, starring alongside Ed Harris, Saoirse Ronan, and Colin Farrell.
He will next be seen starring opposite Kirsten Dunst in Juan Diego Solanas’ romantic fantasy tale Upside Down.
In 2008, Empire Magazine recognized Mr. Sturgess with a Best Newcomer nomination for the Jameson Empire Movie Awards.
