International Film Star
Karl Urban is one of New Zealand’s most well-known actors having forged an international career through his roles in numerous Hollywood blockbusters. He is best known for his dynamic turn as the Rohan warrior Eomer in the second and third instalments of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, as well as for his chilling performance as Kirill in Paul Greengrass’ The Bourne Supremacy. More recently Urban starred as Billy Butcher in Amazon Prime’s The Boys as well as playing Skurge in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Karl spends most of his time in the USA but loves coming home to New Zealand and indulging his love and passion for the outdoors. He spends his time at the beach, surfing, and fishing; adventures that you can follow on his socials in hues of blue and green (dotted between event appearances and movie sets) as he immerses himself in his natural habitat. Even as one of the biggest stars in the world Karl will always cherish his roots as a typical Kiwi boy.
