Born Oct. 12, 1968, in Sydney, Australia, Hugh Jackman is the youngest among five children. He attended the University of Technology in Sydney, graduating with a communications degree and then studying drama at the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts.

Jackman got his first acting break when he landed the lead in the Aussie TV series "Corelli." More television roles followed, along with stage work in "Sunset Boulevard" and "Beauty and the Beast." Jackman became an overnight star after joining the cast of X-Men (2000), portraying superhero Wolverine opposite Patrick Stewart.
