Of course, just doing stage work all your life does not make you a big name actor, not in this day and age. Richard Roxburgh did not become well known in the states until his role in the blockbuster Mission Impossible II. This movie was made in 2000, and it was his first supporting role in a international movie. Although he did a great job in Mission Impossible II, that was not the movie that got Richard Roxburgh known in a lot of homes. In 2001 he had a great performance as the villain in Moulin Rouge. After he played that role he got notice a lot more. That was a big movie, and in the United States it was really big. The Moulin Rouge is a lot of people favorite movie, and it had a great soundtrack. After Richard Roxburgh played his role in the Moulin Rouge he also played the role of Count Dracula in Van Helsing. It was during this movie that he met and fell in love with his wife Silvia Colloca. They would go on to have a son that was born February 2007. Of course, Richard Roxburgh is up to more than just having kids, he is also set to directed his first film which will be call Romulus, My Father. This is a movie that is set to be released in 2007.
Richard Roxburgh is a great actor that has been in many movies and many TV shows. This is a good thing for him, because had he never got into movies, he never would have met his wife. I guess that proves that everything happens for a reason. It is great that he is going to be making movies now, because I think he will be able to bring something great to the movie business. I hope that at some point he will act in a movie aging, maybe a movie that he makes. He is a great guy that is going to be big in Hollywood not just as an actor but as a Hollywood director. You will some day see one of his films as one of the top selling movies of all time, because he knows what it takes to make a great movie. Richard Roxburgh is a very talented person.
