Early life and family

Jason Clarke was born on July 17, 1969 in Winton, Queensland, Australia, where he was raised by his father, a sheep shearer, in their hometown. He practically lived in a caravan and went from one shaving shed to another. Little else is known about his family.


He graduated from a drama school in Melbourne in 1994.


First step

After graduating, he pursued an acting career in Sydney, making his television debut in 1995 with ‘Blue Heelers’, an Australian police drama series. From 1996 to 2003, a series of TV appearances in drama series followed; the most notable were “Wildside”, broadcast in 1998 on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation starring Tony Martin and Rachael Blake; “Stingers”, in which he had a recurring role from 2000-2003; “Home Away From Home”, one of the longest soap operas in Australia, appearing in Season 15 in 2002; and “Farscape,” a 2003 science fiction drama series.

His film debut was in “Dilemna”, released in 1997, followed by small roles in several Australian films, including “Our Lips are Sealed” (2000), “Rabbit-Proof Fence” (2002) and “You Can’t Stop the Murders.” (2003) It took him a while to land a lead role, and this was in a short film, “Hole in the Paper Sky”, produced by Jessica Biel and directed by Bill Purple in 2008. The film was submitted to various film festivals in the US .

Hollywood career

From 2006 to 2008, Jason starred opposite Jason Isaacs in “Brotherhood,” a television American crime series about the conflicting lives of two brothers, a politician and a mobster, in Rhode Island.

The series ran for three seasons and was canceled on December 21, 2008 after 29 episodes.

After the cancellation of the series, his Hollywood film career began. Jason has been a part of many popular films, including Jada Pinkett Smith’s directorial debut, “The Human Contract,” in 2008 starring Paz Vega and Idris Elba; “Public Enemies,” a film adaptation of the nonfiction novel “Public Enemies: America’s Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34,” written by Bryan Burrough, starring Christian Bale and Johnny Depp in 2009; “Wall Street: Money Never Sleep”, starring Michael Douglas and Susan Sarandon in 2010, directed by Oliver Stone, and which was a sequel to the 1987 film “Wall Street”.

In 2011, Jason returned to the small screen by taking on the role of a legendary tough police detective in “The Chicago Code” alongside Jennifer Beals. The crime drama series aired on Fox for only one season with 13 episodes.

He returned to movies and kicked off the decade exactly as “Zero Dark Thirty” played a CIA officer trying to find the infamous Al-Queda terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden with Jessica Chastain in 2012; and “Texas Killing Fields” with Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, one of the official entries at the 2011 Venice International Film Festival.

Due to his talent for portraying good to nefarious characters, he has starred in many popular films, including “The Great Gatsby” with Leo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in 2013, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” with Gary Oldman and Keri Russell in 2014, and “Terminator Genisys” with Arnold Swarzenegger and Emilia Clarke in 2015, which grossed approximately $450 million.

Before the end of 2010, Jason also accepted controversial roles that challenged him physically and intellectually, with films such as ‘Everest’, in which he took on one of the lead roles originally created for Christian Bale in 2015, filming in freezing temperatures; “The Man with the Iron Heart”, a war drama biopic about the murder of Reinhard Heydrich, one of the Nazi leaders and main architects of the Holocaust in 2017; and “Chappaquiddick,” in which he played Ted Kennedy, who was involved in an accident that many believed cost him the chance to become president of the United States.

The film was one of the official entries at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017, earning Jason generally positive reviews for its performance and the way the story was presented.

In 2019, Jason happily accepted the lead role of Dr. Louis Creed in another film adaptation of the novel “Pet Sematary”, written by one of his favorite authors, Stephen King. It was a commercial success with a total grossing of $113 million against a budget of $21 million. A prequel may be in the works, due to its box office success.

Jason was enticed to return to television via the historical HBO miniseries ‘Catherine the Great’ in 2019. His role was that of a military commander and lover of Empress Catherine, who was played by Dame Helen Mirren.

Currently, he is waiting for the release of two films that he is a part of, which will be processed after production – “The Devil All the Time” and “Silk Road”.

Private life

He was married to French-Italian actress and model, Cécile Breccia, whose work in the 2008 sci-fi military film “Starship Troopers 3: Marauder” brought her a little more fame. They were in a relationship for a long time before they decided to tie the knot. It was only unveiled in 2018 at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) red carpet interview that they were already married. They have two sons, a five-year-old and a two-year-old. The family currently lives in Los Angeles, California.

Interesting facts and awards

  • Although he mostly does movies and TV shows in the US, Jason is willing to work back in Australia as long as the project is good.
  • People were fascinated and confused when he and Emilia Clarke, who played his mother in the sci-fi movie “Terminator Genisys”, were related. They only share the same last name, but no blood; he is Australian while Emilia is English.
  • He diligently studies accents by constantly listening to his vocal homework. Jason said that non-American English speakers, actors and wannabes should learn how to speak the language and remove any accent they naturally had if they want to a Hollywood career.
