Biography Brad McMurray is an Australian actor with more than twenty years' experience in film, television and theatre.Brad was born in in Sydney, Australia in 1971 and grew up bursting with creativity and energy, initially channeling the two into a 12 year career as a chef and a long standing passion for martial arts (he is a 2nd degree Black Belt). With an innate love of performing however, by the mid 1990's Brad started seeking out and landing small roles in commercials, television series and feature films. His passion for acting sparked quickly and he soon left cooking behind to pursue a full-time acting career.Brad graduated from Queensland University of Technology's Bachelor of Fine Arts (Acting) degree in 2005, studying the highly respected, method-based, Eric Morris System of Acting. His talent was quickly recognised and nurtured, with Brad playing the lead in the graduating class's production of Bertolt Brecht's BAAL, directed by acclaimed theatre director, Michael Gow.Brad has worked with such Hollywood luminaries as Harvey Keitel, in Fatal Honeymoon (2012) Cuba Gooding Jr in Deception (2013) and Ray Liotta in Bad Karma (2012). He is equally at home on the small screen (notably known by TV fans worldwide as 'the man who shot Lisa McCune' in popular Australian series Sea Patrol) as on the big screen (other notable credits include the terrifying role of 'Derek' in the award-winning revenge film, The Horseman, (2009) and the irascible 'Big Elvis' in 2007's comedy of errors, Crooked Business and a role alongside William Hurt in 2006's Nightmares and Dreamscapes). Brad also maintains a love of theatre, being seen treading the boards most recently in Queensland Theatre companies The Crucible (2009) and Pygmalion (2011).With a strong physicality and intensity, Brad cuts an imposing figure and is capable of the most brutal and raw expressions of character. However, this belies his true emotional range, with thoughtful processes and his approach to craft also creating highly nuanced and emotionally engaging performances as well as betraying a surprising sense of fun and of the absurd.Brad's other credits are numerous across all mediums. He continues his martial arts training to this day, which has also led to an interest, and increasing experience and training, in stunt work within the film and television industries. He still loves to cook and can whip up one hell of a soufflé.
