Mini Bio (1)

Striking, intense actor from Australia. A leading man with both strong dramatic range and ample comic timing, Lachy Hulme broke into movies by writing Canadian action/drama Men with Guns (1997), a bloody tale of friendship and revenge directed by Kari Skogland. Following numerous guest appearances on Australian television and many "fringe" theatre productions, he starred as "Carl" in the little-seen thriller Four Jacks (2001), a perfect role that combined his natural intensity with a dark, violent streak. He won the Best Actor Award at the 2001 Melbourne Underground Film Festival as a result. Known for being very private, he does interviews when promoting a movie, but he never discusses his relationships or family. After Four Jacks, he re-teamed with writer/director Matthew George for a change of pace, the light-hearted adventure Let's Get Skase (2001), starring as real-life sleazebag turned kidnapper "Peter Dellasandro". Based on a true story, the film was attacked by Australian critics for being in "bad taste" at the time of its release. Hulme fought valiantly for the film, often attacking its critics in television and radio interviews, and the controversy boosted his profile considerably.

He soon landed roles opposite Steve Irwin in The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002) and in the video game _Enter the Matrix (2003)_.

Australians don't have a problem with criminals - look at Chopper and Ned Kelly. What they don't like is bullshit artists who get away with it.
Just worry about the work, the career will take care of itself.
