Steve Le Marquand - Details


STEVE LE MARQUAND plays the role of Wozza in the Australian hit, Two Hands, the first Australian movie since Babe to reach No. 1 in its first week in Australia. He has also played the roles of Jones in the Australian film Mullet (also alongside Ben Mendelsohn) and George Stewpot Watts in the Disney telefilm South Pacific with Glenn Close, Harry Connick Jr. and Robert Pastorelli.

Prior to acting, Australian-born Le Marquand spent the first two years after he finished school in an itinerant lifestyle. He traveled around Australia, working his way through about 45 different jobs on various cattle stations, fishing trawlers and hotels. Upon his return to Sydney, he decided he wanted to get a degree. Taking the advice of a friend, who said it was easy, he entered an acting course called Theatre Nepean at the University of Western Sydney and discovered he had a talent for it.

His first television job was the Australian series Police Rescue. Since then, he has played guest roles in a number of television series, including Blue Heelers, Water Rats, GP and Home and Away and the miniseries A Difficult Woman.

He co-wrote, produced, directed and starred in the hugely successful theatre production, "He Died With A Falafel In His Hand," which ran in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
