This page has info on the guy who played Gawain, Joel Edgerton.


Joel Edgerton was born on 23 June, 1974 in Melbourne, Australia. He went to Hills Grammar School in the Western Suburbs of Sydney, and after leaving, he attended Nepean Drama School in 1994. Joel has done many projects on stage and off, but most people will recognise him from his work on the Australian television show, The Secret Life Of Us, in which he played the character of Will. This gave him his first big break through in the television industry. For this role, he was nominated in 2001 for an AFI Award. As well as The Secret Life of Us, he has also appeared in other television projects such as The Three Stooges telemovie, Dossa and Joe, Secret Men's Business, Never Tell Me Never and Saturn's Return. Joel has done a lot of work on the theatrical stage having played King Henry in Henry V, Prince Hal in Henry III, and others including Road, Third World Blues, and Dead White Males. As well as acting he has also starred, co-written and produced the movie Bloodlock.

His first international break came from when he played Uncle Owen in Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones. Since then he has also starred in Ned Kelly, King Arthur, and the up coming Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith. Joel is currently dating the retired Australian runner, Cathy Freeman
