Short BioHugh Jackman was born on the 12th of October, 1968, in Sydney, New South Wales. His parents were English, father Chris being an accountant from Cambridge, and he'd be the youngest of five kids, having two brothers, Ian and Ralph, and two sisters, Sonya and Zoe. Growing up in the Jackman household was not always easy. Chris was vehemently English in his demands for good manners at the table and elsewhere, and the kids' friends, disliking the strictness, would often stay away. Aside from this, though, Hugh enjoyed an active life outside the home, spending much time on the beach, feeding his action figures to the squids. He also discovered acting at a very early age, appearing onstage in Camelot at the age of 5, and continuing through a string of musicals and plays, pupils being strongly encouraged by the school to both contribute to official productions and put on their own.

At the age of 8 disaster struck when his mother, Grace Watson, decided to return to England. She'd work there as a psychologist, and bear another daughter, but her relationship with Hugh would be forever strained. So Chris was left to raise 5 children on his own, and did so in his own uncompromising manner. Very keen on education, he would pay for extra classes, musical tuition and instruments (Hugh would learn piano for six years, also studying guitar and violin), but if anyone wanted mere fripperies like new trainers they could damn well get a job and buy them themselves.

Jackman earned an Australian Film Institute nomination for Best Actor in 1999 for Erskineville Kings (1999). In 1998, he starred in the Aussie film, Paperback Hero (1998), a romantic comedy. And in 2000, Jackman landed his first big budgeted film, the sci-fi summer sizzler, X-Men (2000), playing the comic's most popular character, Wolverine/Logan, a short, quick healing Canuck with a set of strong metal claws who will take on anyone who ticks him off. Jackson and his wife have one son, Oscar, whom they adopted as a baby in May 2000 and a daughter, Ava Eliot Jackman, adopted in July 2005. In 2006 he was chosen as Male Star of the Year at the ShoWest Convention.
