Following his breakout role as lead character Jude Feeny in Julie Taymor's
fantasia Across the Universe, JIM STURGESS has emerged as one of the
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
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
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
Film Festival for his performance in Philip Ridley's Heartless. He was most
in Peter Weir's epic adventure The Way Back, starring alongside Ed Harris,
and Colin Farrell.
He will next be seen starring opposite Kirsten Dunst in Juan Diego Solanas'
fantasy tale Upside Down.
In 2008, Empire Magazine recognized Mr. Sturgess with a Best Newcomer nomination
for the Jameson Empire Movie Awards.
