The Movies of Hugh Jackman

Answer: Anna Paquin

Anna Helene Paquin was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada on 24 July 1982, of a Canadian father and New Zealand mother. When she was four years old her family moved to New Zealand and in 1995 her parents divorced when she moved to Los Angeles with her mother. She had acted a little in New Zealand and so she auditioned for a role in "The Piano" (1993) directed by Jane Campion. Paquin won the role that culminated with her winning an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She was 11 years old at the time. She appeared in a couple of films and then won the role of Rogue in "X-Men". She went on to appear in the "X-Men" sequels as well as in other feature films and TV shows such as "True Blood" and "Susanna". Two of Jackman's first Australian movies were "Erskineville Kings" and "Paperback Hero" both in 1999. His big break came when he replaced Dougray Scott in the role of Wolverine in "X-Men". He performed all his own stunts in the movie and had to put on a lot of muscle for the role. Wolverine in the comics, is only 5 feet 3 inches, and Jackman is 6 feet 2.5 inches, and some of his co-stars had to wear platform-soled shoes so he did not appear to be so tall.

5. In Baz Luhrmann's "Australia" (2008) Jackman starred with Nicole Kidman and many other Australian actors. What was the name of Jackman's character in this movie?

From Quiz The Movies of Hugh Jackman

Answer: Drover

"Australia" is set in a part of northern Australia at the beginning of World War II. A young English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley (Kidman), arrives in Australia to force her unfaithful husband to sell his large cattle station, Faraway Downs. (Cattle stations are called a Ranch in the US.) However when she arrives at the property, she finds that her husband has been murdered. A wealthy cattle owner wants to take her land, so she asks Drover (Jackman) to take her 2,000 head of cattle hundreds of miles to Darwin so they can be loaded on a boat for export, thus helping to save her cattle station. After many adventures along the way, they finally arrive in Darwin just prior to the Japanese bombing of that city. Of course Drover and Lady Sarah fall in love, and after further adventures, settle down in Faraway Downs. Originally Russell Crowe was to play the role of Drover, but because of other commitments he was unavailable, so the role went to Jackman. Talking about the movie, he had this to say: "This is pretty much one of those roles that had me pinching myself all the way through the shoot. I got to shoot a big-budget, shamelessly old-fashioned romantic epic set against one of the most turbulent times in my native country's history, while, at the same time, celebrating that country's natural beauty, its people, its culture... I'll die a happy man knowing I've got this film on my CV."

6. "Les Miserables" (2012) directed by Tom Hooper starred Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter, among others. What role did Hugh Jackman play in this film?

From Quiz The Movies of Hugh Jackman

Answer: Jean Valjean

Jean Valjean (Jackman) is the protagonist in "Les Miserables" which was written in 1862 by Victor Hugo. Valjean was imprisoned for stealing a loaf of bread so he could feed his sister's children and the story goes on to tell of his long struggle after leaving prison to lead an ordinary life. The movie was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won three. Hugh Jackman was nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, but lost to Daniel Day-Lewis for his performance in "Lincoln". However Jackman did win a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy or Musical, and a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. This film was unusual in that the actors sang live during filming, and did not mime their own voices to a prerecorded sound track. Jackman had to lose weight for the early scenes but then had to put nearly twice as much back on when his character became more successful. He married Deborrah-Lee Furness in April 1996 and they have adopted two children.
