Who is jim sturgess dating
He started to write and perform his own short films and plays.
While performing his one-person show 'BUZZIN', based around his performance poetry, Jim was discovered by an acting agent.
A third film project in 2010 was Promised Land which was to be directed by Michael Winterbottom and, according to Variety, "will recount the lead up to the 1948 partition of Palestine and the subsequent creation of the state of Israel".
Sturgess was to star as a British officer hunting down the extremist Jewish factions.
He graduated from the University of Salford in 1999 with an HND in Media and Performance.
In 2007, he got his big break when he was cast in Julie Taymor's musical Across the Universe, portraying Jude Feeny, a young man who travels to the US amid the raging throes of the late 1960s and falls in love with a sheltered American teenager, Lucy, played by Evan Rachel Wood.
In 2008, he appeared in the historical drama The Other Boleyn Girl in the supporting role of George Boleyn opposite Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Eric Bana.
He also played the male lead role of Ben Campbell in 21, a film about five MIT students, who, by counting cards, take Las Vegas casinos for millions.
Filmed in the Isle of Man, the production is being partially funded by the band Coldplay, university friends of the director.
The band would also play gigs in and around his local area to any publican who would turn a blind eye to the fact that they were all under age.
Sturgess's first acting experience came when the local theatre group came to his school looking for children to audition for the local play.
Sturgess moved to Manchester to attend Salford University hoping it would enable him to start another band and hang around the Manchester music scene, where most of his music idols were from.
In Manchester, he fell-in with a group of aspiring actors and film-makers, and his passion for acting was re-ignited.
