About Geoffrey Rush

Geoffrey Rush was born on July 6th, 1951, in Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. When his parents divorced, he moved to Brisbane, Austrialia and grew up there. He graduated from University of Queensland with a degree in the Arts.

This Australian actor, Geoffrey Rush spent many years on the theatrical stage in Australia, as an actor and director. His durable presence in the both the Queensland Company and the State Theatre Company of South Australia showed his talent and versatality as a thespian in a variety of stage plays that ranged from classical to modern.

Geoffrey Rush married the love of his life, actress Jane Menelaus in 1988. They have two children, Angelica (1992), and James (1995).

Geoffrey Rush's first major film role was playing the character, Andrew Aguecheek, in the 1987 film, TWELFTH NIGHT. However, it wasn't until his performance in the 1996 film, CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION that Rush was noticed by film producers and Rush's film career began to take off finally. Doors began to open for him.

Finally, he was cast in the 1996 movie, SHINE, where he brilliantly portrays a struggling Australian concert pianist, dealing with abuse in his childhood, as well as the legacy of the loss of many family members in Hitler's persecution of Jews in World War II. The character, based on a real pianist, suffers a nervous breakdown, is institutionalized and many years later, makes a comeback, first in clubs and then as a concert pianist. Rush received an Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance.

Interestingly, Geoffrey Rush did almost all of his own piano playing in SHINE, as he is an accomplished pianist in his own right.

Two years later, in 1998, he played a ruthless, diabolical diplomat in ELIZABETH, with Cate Blanchette. Also in 1998, he played a comic role, as the director of the King's Men, the acting company Shakespeare belonged to in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE. His performance was nominated for an Oscar.

In 2000, he was cast as the Marquis de Sade in QUILLS, with Kate Winslet, in a role for which he was again nominated for an Oscar.

In 2002, he played Leon Trotsky in FRIDA, with Salma Hayek.

In 2003, he played in THE PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, with Johnny Depp.

In 2009, he became one of nineteen actors who has won a Tony, an Oscar and an Emmy. He won his Tony for his performance in the play, EXIT THE KING, to go with his 1997 Oscar for SHINE, and his 2004 EMMY for THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS.

In 2011, Geoffrey Rush was again honored with a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his performance in the 2010 film, THE KING'S SPEECH. In this true story, Geoffrey portrayed speech therapist, Lionel Logue, who helped King George VI (played by Colin Firth) get around his stammer, and rise to the occasions where the King had to address his people in speeches during World War 11.

Geoffrey also was nominated for a Golden Globe, and won a BAFTA Award and a British Independent Film Award for this same wonderful performance.
