Sturgess sustained almost a decade of roles in British productions, mostly telefilms, including I’m Frank Morgan, Hawk, and the three instalments of The Quest series. In 2007, he made his big break in Julie Taymor’s musical Across The Universe, portraying Jude Feeny, a paternally-shorn young man who travels to the U.S. amid the raging throes of the late ’60s and falls in love with sheltered American teenager.

The following year he appeared in the historical drama The Other Boleyn Girl in the supporting role of George Boleyn opposite Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Eric Bana. Plus he played the lead role in Vegas gambling flick, 21,alongside Kevin Spacey and Kate Bosworth.

He played Gavin Kossef in 2009′s Crossing Over, appearing with Hollywood greats Harrison Ford, Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd. Set in Los Angeles, the storyline revolves around immigrants from different countries and backgrounds who share a common bond in desperately trying to gain legal status.

With an decidedly impressive resume thus far, Sturgess sounds like a top pick for an up and coming this year. His list of movies to come includes: Upside DownThe Promised Land and Ashes in 2012.
