Hugo Weaving is an English actor who rose to global stardom through his performances in big Hollywood blockbusters like The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings.

Born in Colonial Nigeria, Hugo has resided in Australia for most of his life. It is on Australian television where he first found a bit of success.

He began his career in 1984, starring as as English cricket captain Douglas Jardine in Bodyline.

He kept acting down under, working on the 1991 film proof, where he won the Australian Film Institute’s “Best Actor” award, and then starring as a drag queen in Australian classic Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. His performance in that cemented his popular status in Australian culture

However, it would be Hugo’s role as Agent Smith in The Matrix trilogy and Elrond in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, alongside actors like Laurence Fishburne, that projected him to international fame.

Outside of acting, Hugo has been vocal in his support of animal rights, serving as an ambassador for Australian animal rights organisation, Voiceless.

Continuing to be active as a performer, Hugo is currently starring in the acclaimed Australian television series Love Me, which has now been renewed for a second season.

Coinciding with the growing popularity of his new series, Hugo has come out with his passion for Australian life and culture, saying “I’d much rather live and work here and work on great Australian scripts”.

Hugo certainly lives by what he says. He has lived in Sydney and remained active in Australian film and television for most of his professional life.
