Karl Urban’s first ever acting role came at the age of eight. He had a single line in one of the episode of the New Zealand television series ‘Pioneer Woman’. Following this, Urban did not pursue acting professionally until he finished high school.
After leaving college, he appeared in several theatre productions and local TV commercials. He moved to Auckland where he was offered guest roles in several TV shows. He then located to Bondi Beach, Sydney before finally settling down in New Zealand in 1996.
Immediately after coming to New Zealand, Urban bagged himself a big project, the internationally syndicated American/New Zealand TV series ‘Hercules: The Legendary Journeys’ and its spin-off ‘Xena: Warrior Princess,’ playing the recurring role of Cupid and Julius Ceasar. He played the characters from 1996 until 2001.
In 2000, Karl Urban appeared in offbeat rural romance ‘The Price of Milk’. The film won him a nomination at New Zealand Quantas Film and Television Awards. He next appeared as policeman Nick Harvey in ‘Out of the Blue’. His perfect portrayal of the character earned him widespread acclaim and appreciation from the critics and audience.
His growing popularity soon helped him make his Hollywood debut with the horror flick ‘Ghost Ship’. ‘Ghost Ship’ not just opened the gateway to Hollywood for Urban but also earned him numerous prestigious film offers that turned fruitful for his career.
In 2013, he starred as Detective John Kennex in the televisions series ‘Almost Human’. The series was futuristic themed and was set 35 years into the future, wherein cops in the L.A.P.D. were paired up with lifelike androids. In the series, Karl Urban played a detective who disliked robots but did not have any choice than to be paired up with them. In 2014, he was seen in the erotic thriller ‘The Loft’. The film was in fact a remake of a Belgian film of the same name. Despite being directed by the same director, ‘The Loft’ failed to impress the audience.
In 2016 Karl Urban worked in two important projects. In the first movie, he reprised his role of Dr Leonard McCoy for the thirteenth installment of the Star Trek series, ‘Star Trek Beyond’. In his second film of the year, ‘Pete’s Dragon’ he played the main antagonist. He has three upcoming releases lined up, namely, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, ‘Hangman’ and ‘Bent’
