KARL URBAN (Uncle Zack) stars in the new television series Almost Human, which debuted on FOX in November. He was recently seen reprising his role as Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy in the 2013 global blockbuster smash Star Trek Into Darkness, reuniting him with director/producer J.J. Abrams.

Born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand, Urban participated in local theater and television productions before starring in his first feature film, Heaven. For his work in his next two feature films, Via Satellite and The Price of Milk, Urban received two Best Actor nominations at the New Zealand Film Awards.

Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson discovered Urban in the whimsical romantic comedy The Price of Milk, and cast him in his first Hollywood blockbuster, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Urban played Eomer, the banished, loyal prince of Rohan, and went on to reprise his role in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, as well as The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which went on to win an historic eleven Academy Awards and garnered Urban his second Screen Actors Guild Award.

Urban starred alongside Matt Damon in the critical and box office hit The Bourne Supremacy. Urban's other film credits include The Chronicles of Riddick, Doom, Priest and J.J. Abrams' Star Trek.

Urban can be seen alongside Eric Stonestreet, James Marsden and Wentworth Miller in The Loft, and with Vin Diesel in Riddick, the third film of the Pitch Black series.

Urban is also an ambassador for Kids Can, a charity organization that provides food and clothing for over 50,000 children living in poverty in New Zealand. Recently, Urban has become involved with Key to Life Trust, a New Zealand-based charity organization focusing on school mental health promotion and suicide prevention.

Urban lives with his family in Auckland, New Zealand.
