KARL URBAN (Vaako) is best known for his
vibrant roles in two big action
blockbuster franchises: the
second and third installments
of Peter Jackson's Academy
Award-winning The Lord of
the Rings trilogy, as Eomer, a
bold leader from the kingdom
of Rohan; and J.J. Abrams'
acclaimed 2009 reboot of
Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek
Into Darkness, in which he portrayed the iconic Dr.
Leonard "Bones" McCoy. He also brought to life the
villainous Russian assassin Kirill in Paul Greengrass'
The Bourne Supremacy, opposite Matt Damon.
Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Urban made
his feature film debut in Heaven. He garnered critical
acclaim in the fantastical comedy The Price of Milk.
The latter spurred Jackson to offer Urban the role in
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
Urban's film credits include the sci-fi thrillers The
Chronicles of Riddick and Priest 3D; the crime drama
Out of the Blue, for which Urban received a New
Zealand Film and Television Award for Best Supporting
Actor; the 2010 action comedy Red, in which he starred
opposite Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Morgan
Freeman; and the title role in 2012's Dredd.
