In a shambles, Australia once existed.

Sam Worthington's story starts far from Australia's wilderness on the other side of the globe in the city of Surrey, located in the United Kingdom. Born August 2, 1975, the one who will become Jake Sully on the big screen 34 years later moves to Perth at the age of six months (state capital of Western Australia). Subsequently, he joined the John Curtin College of the Arts, a school specialized in the teaching of dramatic arts, from which he graduated without a diploma.

He leaves the family home on his father's orders with a modest sum of 400 Australian dollars in his pocket, then does a series of food jobs in the construction industry. He applied to the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney where he was accepted and even received a scholarship. His acting debut in 2004 in Somersault was honored by the American Film Institute.

Sam Worthington is in pursuit of a role as James Bond in the famous British secret agent 007, who was broadcast in his native country between 2004 and 2007.

A nomadic existence

Sam Worthington, who is in his 30s, decides to give up everything, sell his house and his studio, and leave Sydney with a car with a mattress as his sole foothold during the period leading up to his audition for the international role.

The desire to be rebellious is evident.

Sam Worthington gets a call that will forever alter his life. He defies the script in his own way, refuses to understand his lines, and just chews gum in front of a perplexing "jury."

Sam Worthington is officially chosen to play Jake Sully in what will be the greatest success of the 7th Art of all time with no less than 2.9 billion dollars in worldwide box office receipts. James Cameron himself, the director of Avatar, is enthralled when he speaks about Sam Worthington.

True to form, the Aussie actor travels inland and to the top of a mountain without a phone connection to assist him. He learns all of the good news all the time and accepts the role. Avatar is a multifaceted story that has been written by a British filmmaker.

A discreet "after"

Sam Worthington has had a pivotal year in 2009, having previously portrayed Marcus Wright and Jake Sully in Terminator Renaissance (June) and Avatar (December). Nevertheless, the Australian actor struggles to keep his name alive in the cinematic landscape, which includes him surprisingly little: The Clash of the Titans (2010) and The Wrath of the Titans (2012).

Sam Worthington performs his last role as Captain Alex Mason in Call of Duty: Black Ops and Black Ops II. From its beginning, the film You Shall Not Kill was directed by Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Apocalypto, The Passion of the Christ) and runs till December 2022 in Avatar: The Way of the Water. The second episode of James Cameron's story has a bright future ahead of it!

Avatar: The Waterway is a waterway adventure.
