      Angus Sampson was an Australian-born character actor who had a breakout year in America in 2015 after he appeared in the action blockbuster, "Mad Max: Fury Road." Born and raised in a middle-class family in Sydney, Sampson always had a lingering desire to perform. As a young boy, however, he lacked discipline, and was briefly sent to an Australian boarding school by his parents. The stint at boarding school worked, and Sampson eventually returned to his regular high school. It was there that he joined the school's drama department, and before long was appearing in school productions of plays. Through acting, Sampson found an easy outlet to channel his teenage angst and frustration, and soon enough, decided that he would devote his life to the craft. He started auditioning for mostly TV roles after high school in the mid-'90s, and even landed a few minor guest spots in his native Australia. By the early 2000s Sampson started appearing in small roles in movies, including "Fat Pizza" (2003), "Footy Legends" (2006), and "Rats and Cats" (2007). In 2009 he donned a massive suit as one of the beasts in director Spike Jonze's "Where The Wild Things Are." His big break came the following year when he played Tucker in "Insidious" (2010). The low-budget horror film was a major success at the box office, and spawned two sequels, both of which Sampson appeared in. Sampson continued to land roles throughout the early 2010s, before going on to have his biggest year in 2015. In addition to appearing in the third installment of the "Insidious" franchise, Sampson also nabbed parts in the explosive action reboot "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015), and the TV series, "Fargo" (FX, 2014- ). On "Fargo," Sampson played the recurring role of Bear Gearhart.
