      David Wenham

      David Wenham

      Highest Rated: 95% The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

      Lowest Rated: 20% Dust (2001)

      Birthday: Sep 21, 1965

      Birthplace: Marrickville, New South Wales, Australia

      Largely unknown outside of his native Australia, actor David Wenham was a busily working television and film actor until his international breakout playing Faramir in "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (2002) and "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" (2003). Wenham earned a reputation as an "actor's actor" in Australia, where his charismatic screen presence and his ability to disappear into wildly different roles had made him a sought-after talent for local dramas and comedies including "Cosi" (1996) and "Moulin Rouge" (2001). After proving his capable dramatic chops in two of cinematic history's biggest blockbusters, Wenham was welcomed into the big budget Hollywood folds with high profile roles in further bombastic productions like "Van Helsing" (2004) and "300" (2007), where he arrived as an international star and scored points with both female fans for his handsome looks and male moviegoers for his prowess in battle.
