Actors are no more stuck to their homeland and regional media. The worldwide popular media platforms like the Hollywood industry or Netflix media have almost taken actors from all lands and countries. If you are an Australian, it’s pretty obvious that you might not have realized a native actor in any famous Hollywood movie, as they have all shifted and settled in the US for a long time.
If you haven’t known, some of the top stars are actually Australian-born but have spread a rapid-fire in the American media! Check out the most famous Hollywood stars here who are actually Australian!
1. Hugh Jackman
Who wouldn’t know the great Logan in 2013’s X-Men? Though we have praised Wolverine throughout Hollywood’s Logan movie series, we never knew that Hugh Michael Jackman was actually Australian. Born in Sydney, Jackman shifted to the USA around 1998 when he stepped into the Hollywood industry as the superhero Wolverine. He also starred in other superhits like Oklahoma, The Prestige, and The Greatest Showman of 2017.
