David Wenham (born 21 September 1965) is an Australian
actor who has appeared in movies, television series and theatre
productions. He is known in Hollywood for his roles as Faramir in
The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Carl in Van Helsing and Dilios
in 300. He is also known in his native Australia for his role as
Diver Dan in SeaChange. More recently, he is rumored to have narrated
the first season of the American television show "Deadliest
Warrior". The narrator is credited as "Drew Skye",
which is widely rumored to be a pseudonym.
In The News:
Nothing in the news at this time.
Wenham was born in Marrickville, Sydney, Australia, the son of Kath
and Bill Wenham. He has five older sisters, Maree, Kathy, Helen,
Carmel and Anne, and an older brother, Peter. Peter's son is named
Justin Wenham. Wenham was raised in the Roman Catholic faith and
attended Christian Brothers' High School, Lewisham. He worked as
a bingo caller and an insurance clerk before becoming successful
as an actor.
Wenham's television credits include several telemovies, such as his
AFI award winning role in the 1996 telemovie Simone de Beauvoir's
Babies; and his role as the outwardly laid back but deeply enigmatic
diver Dan Della Bosca in the 1998 and 1999 seasons of the highly successful
ABC television series SeaChange. His role as "Diver Dan"
has made the actor something of a sex symbol, although he dislikes
thinking of himself as such, and he has been voted Australia's "sexiest
man alive". A portrait of Wenham by artist Adam Cullen won the
Archibald Prize in 2000. Wenham is signed to Storm Model Management
In film, Wenham seems to have been much more successful in Australia
than abroad. Australian films Wenham has starred in include the
critically acclaimed The Boys (1998) based on the play of the same
name premiered at Griffin Theatre Company and in turn based on the
Anita Cobby murder; Molokai (1999), based on the life of Father
Damien; The Bank (2001); Gettin' Square (2003) and Three Dollars
(2005). Wenham has periodically appeared in Hollywood films; the
role for which he is best known for worldwide is Faramir, son of
Denethor, in New Line Cinema's The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Wenham jokes
about that he was cast in The Lord of the Rings because of his resemblance
to his on-screen brother, Sean Bean. As he notes, they both have
big noses. He has appeared with two of 2001's Best Supporting Actor
Nominees: That year's winner was Jim Broadbent, with whom he appeared
in Moulin Rouge. The other was Ian McKellen, who reprised his Oscar-nominated
role opposite Wenham in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
He was also seen in Van Helsing playing Hugh Jackman's sidekick,
Friar Carl. His character, Dilios, narrated and appeared in the
movie 300. Minor roles of Wenham's in overseas films include in
The Crocodile Hunter as a park ranger, and briefly in Moulin Rouge!
as Audrey. Wenham stars in the music video for Alex Lloyd's single
"Brand New Day". In 2008's Australia, he reunited with
Hugh Jackman playing antagonist Neil Fletcher who seeks to acquire
the ranch Jackman's character is employed with.
In both Lord of the Rings: Return of the King and 300, Wenham's
character is the sole survivor returned from an ill-fated battle
(the Battle at Osgiliath and the Battle of Thermopylae, respectively).
He reprises his role of Dilios in the videogame 300: March to Glory
for Sony Playstation Portable, which contains a lot of new dialogue.
2009 he again took to the stage, this time as the lead actor, Jerry
Springer, in the critically acclaimed hit british musical Jerry
Springer - The Opera. During its short 6 day run at the Sydney Opera
House he played to sold out audiences alongside ARIA award winning
singer Kate Miller-Heidke.
He has two daughters, Eliza Jane and Millie, with his longtime girlfriend,
Kate Agnew. His nickname, "Daisy", originates from his
Wenham read a poem by Rupert McCall at the memorial service for
naturalist Steve Irwin. The poem was entitled "The Crocodiles
In 1999, he presented the Village Roadshow Pictures Award for Best
Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role.
