Profile Bio Text
Geoffrey Roy Rush (born 6 July 1951) is an Australian actor. He moved to Melbourne in the early 1990s via Brisbane and Sydney and currently lives in the suburb of Camberwell, Victoria. He is one of 20 (as of June 2009) people to have won the "Triple Crown of Acting": an Academy Award, a Tony Award, and an Emmy Award, and has also won the Golden Globe, the BAFTA, the Screen Actors Guild, and the Australian Film Institute awards. Early life Rush was born in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, the son of Merle (née Kiehne), a department store sales clerk, and Roy Baden Rush, an accountant for the Royal Australian Air Force. His parents divorced when he was five, and his mother subsequently took him to live with her parents in the suburbs. Before he began his acting career, Rush attended Everton Park State High School. He also has an Arts Degree from the University of Queensland. While at university he was talent-spotted by Queensland Theatre Company in Brisbane, where he began his career. In 1975, Rush took off for Paris for a couple of years, and studied mime and pantomime at the famous L`École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq School of Mime, before returning to Australia to resume his stage career. In 1979, he shared an apartment with actor Mel Gibson for four months, while they co-starred in a stage production of Waiting for Godot. Stage career Geoffrey Rush made his theatre debut in Queensland Theatre Company`s production of Wrong Side of the Mood. He worked with the company for four years, appearing in roles ranging across classical plays to pantomime, from Juno and the Paycock to Hamlet on Ice. Following these early years in Brisbane, Rush left to Paris where he studied further. Rush has appeared on stage for Company B, and for the Queensland Theatre Company and the Brisbane Arts Theatre, as well as in many other theatre venues, and has worked as a theatre director. His credits include William Shakespeare`s plays, The Winter`s Tale (with the South Australia Theatre Company in 1987 at The Playhouse in Adelaide), and Troilus and Cressida (at the Old Museum Building in 1989). He also appeared in an on-going production of The Importance of Being Earnest as John Worthing (Ernest) (in which his wife, Jane Menelaus, appeared as Gwendolen). In September 1998, Rush played the title role in the Beaumarchais play The Marriage of Figaro for the Queensland Theatre Company. This was the opening production of the Optus Playhouse, at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre at South Bank in Brisbane. A pun on Geoffrey Rush`s name (and the circumstances), was used in the opening prologue of the play with the comment that the "Optus Playhouse was opening with a Rush". In 2007, he starred as King Berenger in a production of Eugène Ionesco`s Exit the King at the Malthouse Theatre in Melbourne and Company B in Sydney, directed by Neil Armfield. Geoffrey Rush made his Broadway debut in a restaging of Exit the King under Malthouse Theatre`stouring moniker Malthouse Melbourne. This restaging featured a new American cast including Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon. The show opened on March 26, 2009 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Other cast includes Lauren Ambrose, Andrea Martin, William Sadler, and Brian Hutchison. Geoffrey won the Outer Critics Circle Award, Theatre World Award, and Drama Desk Award, as well as the Distinguished Performance Award from the Drama League Award, and was the winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play. Film career Rush`s film debut was in the Australian film Hoodwink in 1981. His next film was Gillian Armstrong`s Starstruck, the following year. In 1996, he starred in Shine, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor, becoming the first Australian-born actor to win an Oscar (20 Years after Peter Finch won the Oscar he was born in London). From that point on, his film career skyrocketed. In 1998, he appeared in three major films: Les Misérables, in which he played Inspector Javert; Elizabeth, in which he played the suspicious Sir Francis Walsingham, for which he won a BAFTA Award; and Shakespeare in Love in which he played Philip Henslowe, the acting company manager who remained calm in the midst of chaos (and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor). In 1999, Rush departured from his usual dramatic stint and took the lead role as Steven Price in the horror flick House on Haunted Hill. In 2000, he received his third Academy Award nomination, for Quills, in which he played the Marquis de Sade. Rush`s career continued at a fast pace, with nine films released from 2001 through 2003. He starred in the film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, as Captain Hector Barbossa, also appearing in its sequels, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man`s Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World`s End. Rush reprised his character`s voice for the enhancements at the Pirates o
