TERMINATOR SALVATION

SAM WORTHINGTON (Marcus Wright) follows "Terminator Salvation” with a starring role in James Cameron's 3D science fiction actioner "Avatar,” slated for release on December 18, 2009. Worthington was handpicked for the film by Cameron, who, coincidentally, also directed the first two "Terminator” films. In addition, Worthington stars in two very different upcoming independent features: the romantic drama "Last Night,” opposite Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes; and the post-World War II dramatic thriller "The Debt,” directed by John Madden and also starring Helen Mirren. He is currently filming the action-adventure fantasy epic "Clash of the Titans,” playing the lead role of Perseus under the direction of Louis Leterrier.

A native of Australia, Worthington graduated from Sydney's prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in 1998. Upon graduation, he continued to act on the stage, appearing in a production of "Judas Kiss,” directed by Neil Armfield for Company B at the Belvoir Street Theatre.

In 2000, Worthington made his feature film debut with a starring role in the Australian film "Bootmen,” in the role of Adam Garcia's brooding older brother. His performance garnered him an Australian Film Institute (AFI) Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. His subsequent Australian film credits include "Dirty Deeds,” with John Goodman, Toni Collette and Sam Neill, for which he earned a Film Critics Circle of Australia (FCCA) Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor; and "Gettin' Square,” with David Wenham. He also had a small role in the World War II drama "Hart's War,” starring Bruce Willis.

However, it was his layered performance in Cate Shortland's critically acclaimed and commercially successful 2004 film "Somersault” that brought Worthington international attention. He won an AFI Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and earned his second FCCA Award nomination. In addition, the film made a clean sweep of the year's AFI Awards, winning in all 13 film categories—a first in the awards' history. Worthington went on to star in the title role of Geoffrey Wright's 2006 contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth.” He has also been seen in John Dahl's "The Great Raid” and the horror thriller "Rogue.”

Worthington's Australian television credits include starring roles in two award-winning projects: "Love My Way,” which has won three AFI Awards for Best Television Drama Series; and "The Surgeon,” which was nominated for an AFI Award for Best Telefeature or Miniseries. He also starred in the "Delivery Man” episode of "Two Twisted,” a "Twilight Zone”-like anthology series produced by Bryan Brown.
