27 years old Jim Sturgess was born in London as James Anthony Sturgess. He attended Frensham Heights School and joined National Youth Music Theatre on 1993-1995. Then he studied at the University of Salford’s School of Media, Music and Performance. In 1994, he made his professional screen debut in the British film The Browning Version.
In 1999 his career began to heat up with appearances in two episodes of The Scarlett Pimpernell, followed by a series of appearances on other shows, including a regular role on the TV series The Residents. He played opposite Ellen Page in Mouth to Mouth (2005), as members of a cult.
Besides his performing career, Jim was also member of several bands. His last band was Dilated Spies. The band decided to split and he was unemployed, not knowing what to do. That’s when he heard about audition for a Beatles musical. Although sceptical at first, he decided to give it a try. The movie, Across The Universe, was a big hit, and soon he found himself with more offers. Jim didn’t waste his chance. Besides Across The Universe, he was cast as Ben Campbell in the movie 21, alongside Kate Bosworth and Kevin Spacey. The movie was again a major hit. He also starred in The Other Boleyn Girl as George Boleyn with Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Eric Bana. Jim will also star in the upcoming movies Crossing Over, Fifty Dead Man Walking, and Heartless. He didn’t complain though.
