Les Misérables

Hugh Jackman is one of my favorite actors. I specifically like his new move into music and film together. He could obviously always sing and its given rise to all these actors and actresses that have both these skills. Its quite amazing. He was great as Wolverine, I loved him in Australia and Les Misérables and love him even more in the movie The Greatest Showman. I think he’s been amazing in most of the movies he’s been in.

Apparently, he used to be a clown at children’s parties ba ck in the day! He said that didn’t go on for too long and thank goodness for us it didn’t. Hugh Jackman was born 12 th October 1968 and is an Australian actor, singer and producer. He was born in Sydney. He has had a long career and it still seems to be going swimmingly. He is married to Deborra-Lee Furness. They met on the set of an Australian TV show called Correlli. Hugh Jackman personally designed the engagement ring for his future bride and their actual wedding rinds bore the Sanskrit (ancient Indian language) inscription “Om Paramar Mainamar” translated as “we dedicate our union to a
greater source”. That speaks volumes to their relationship and who they are as individuals. His wife unfortunately suffered two mis-carriages, so they adopted two mixed-race children Oscar and Ava. It must have been hard to have miscarriages and also again it speaks volumes that they adopted too.

Jackman has shown to be very keen in sport. In high school he plated rugby and cricket and took part in the high jumping and swimming team. It is said that he enjoys basketball and kayaking. Jackman has also been an avid practitioner of transcendental meditation since the age of twenty and he has said that “nothing has ever opened my eyes like Transcendental Meditation has”. He goes on to say, “It makes me calm and happy and well it gives me some peace and quiet in a what’s a pretty chaotic life”. He now helped the David Lynch Foundation to bring mediation to everyone from PTSD sufferers to inner city kids.

He will always be one of my favorite actors and since seeing him in Le Mis and The Greatest Showman, well my love for him has doubled. He just seems like a very down to earth and approachable person and seems to care about what he does. That’s what comes off. I am very grateful to him as an actor for all that he has shared with us. I only wonder what more is to come!
