Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An Australian actor with rugged charm and a relatable Everyman presence, Joel Edgerton has become a familiar face in both Hollywood and indie films. Starting out on Aussie television, Edgerton rose to fame in his homeland as a regular on the popular drama series "The Secret Life of Us" (Network Ten, 2001-05) and went on to appear in his first big-budget movie with a small role in the sci-fi prequel "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones" (2002). Other mainstream fare followed, but Edgerton did not have his critical breakthrough until his key part in the gritty Australian crime film "Animal Kingdom" (2010). From that point on, Edgerton was in the big leagues, with one high-profile project after another.
