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.
