Short Bio:
 Jim Sturgess Born on May 16, 1981 in London, England, Jim Sturgess' theatrical inclinations were apparent from a very early age, when he would write plays and recruit siblings and neighbors to stage them in his attic. He enrolled at London's renowned National Youth Music Theatre, where he performed in musical and dramatic productions, nabbing his first small film role in the remake of "The Browning Version" (1994) from director Mike Figgis. The film was lauded by critics and collected its share of accolades, including a nomination for the Palme d'Or (Golden Palm) award at the Cannes Film Festival. By the time he hit his teens, Sturgess was also singing and playing guitar - as well as trying to sneak drinks - with bands at local pubs. At the University of Salford's School of Media, Music and Performance, he studied filmmaking and theater and made his television debut in the miniseries "The Scarlet Pimpernel" (BBC1, 1999). Following his graduation, he began to build a resume with roles in British television and radio productions, including an appearance in the popular "Quest" series (YTV, 2002, 2004), about three London lads sowing their wild oats. But eventually acting took a backseat to music, and Sturgess found himself spending more time playing music.Young British talent Jim Sturgess divided his time between playing in bands and acting in a steady string of TV and radio shows before his breakout role in the Academy Award-nominated musical "Across the Universe" (2007) showcased his talents and put him on the international radar. Within a short time of garnering recognition for the challenging lead role, Sturgess focused on his promising film career, with his boyish, rooster-haired hipness proving to have significant appeal in follow-up American and U.K dramas including "21" (2008) and "The Other Boleyn Girl" (2008). After "Across the Universe," its young star appeared in four theatrical releases within a year. He had a supporting role portraying 16th century diplomat George Boleyn in the costume drama "The Other Boleyn Girl" (2008), before returning to first billing with "21" (2008), a fact-based caper about card-counting M.I.T. math wizards snaring millions in blackjack wins in Las Vegas. He was also slated to appear in "Crossing Over" (2008), an ensemble film exploring immigration issues in the U.S., before starring in the gripping real life story of Irish Republican Army informer Martin McGartland, "Fifty Dead Men Walking" (2008).
