He has become an international superstar thanks to his role as Wolverine in the X-Men series, and is loved by fans worldwide thanks to his extremely varied career as an actor and producer in film, television and musical theatre. Born in Sydney, Australia, in 1968, Jackman was offered a role in Neighbours aged 24 but turned it down in order to study at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in Perth. He then went on to star in several muscial theatre productions in Australia before gaining international recognition on London's West End in a critically acclaimed production of Oklahoma! for which he received an Olivier Award nomination for Best Actor. In 2000, Jackman's Hollywood break came as he was cast as Wolverine, a role that catapulted him to stardom. He has since reprised the role in box office hits X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine."@en ;
