Sam Worthington Biography

Sam Worthington, a British-born Australian actor, was born on August 2, 1976, in Godalming, Surrey, England, UK. Despite being born in England to English parents, he is an Australian citizen and spent most of his childhood in Perth, Western Australia. His complete name is Samuel Shane Worthington.

At the age of 22, Worthington completed his studies at NIDA (Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art) in 1998. He garnered critical praise for his performance as “Arthur Wellesley” in his debut professional role in the Belvoir Street Theatre’s production of “Judas Kiss” under the direction of Neil Armfield. Following this, he worked on several Australian television programs, including Water Rats (1996) and Backburner, before appearing in the 100th episode of the American television series JAG (1995) titled “Boomerang: Part 1.” His film debut came in Bootmen (2000), a highly acclaimed Australian film about a group of “tap dogs.”

Personal Life

According to Worthington, he sold off the majority of his belongings and was left with only $2,000 when he was around 30 years old. He used the money to buy a car and ended up living in it until he landed the role in Avatar. After securing the part, he was able to find a place to call home.
