Richard Roxburgh (born 1 January 1962) is an Australian actor who has starred in many Australian films and has appeared in supporting roles in a number of Hollywood productions, usually as villains.

Biography

Roxburgh was born in Albury. He appeared in a large number of Australian film and stage productions through the 1990s, including a critically acclaimed turn as Hamlet in the 1994 Company B production at the Belvoir St Theatre. His first supporting role in an international blockbuster was in "Mission Impossible II" in 2000, but it was perhaps his eyecatching role as a villain in "Moulin Rouge!" in 2001, that attracted attention. In 2004, he went on to play the role of Count Dracula in "Van Helsing". During the making of the film, he met Silvia Colloca, whom he married on September 25, 2004. They have one son, Raphael Roxburgh, who was born in February 2007.

Roxburgh directed his first film, "Romulus, My Father", released in 2007.

He performed the lead character, Roland Henning, who suffered writers block in Michael Gow's new play "Toy Symphony" in December 2007 at the Belvior Street Theatre Sydney.

Roxburgh also has a resemblance to fellow Australian actor, Grant Bowler.
