New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison is well known to Supanova fans as Bounty Hunter Jango Fett in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
Hailing from Rotorua in Northern New Zealand, Morrison studied acting under the New Zealand Special Performing Arts Training Scheme. He made his first screen appearance on Rangi’s Catch, with his first recurring role as Selwyn on the television series Seekers.
Following a number of small roles, Morrison came into the spotlight with the film adaptation of the novel, Once Were Warriors. He received the award for best male performance in a dramatic role at the 1994 New Zealand Film and Television Awards. Morrison would later revisit the role in the film’s sequel, What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?, and receiving the Best Actor award from the New Zealand Film Awards.
In 2002 he landed the role of Jango Fett in the highly anticipated Star Wars prequel Attack of the Clones. He would reprise his role in 2005 with the next instalment, Revenge of the Sith.
He has since portrayed Jango Fett and his clones in a number of Star Wars video games. He also played the commando “Boss” in Star Wars: Republic Commando, voiced all the troopers in Star Wars: Battlefront, and returned again to voice the bounty hunters Jango Fett and Boba Fett in Star Wars: Battlefront II as well as the clone advisor and the narrator of The 501st Journal. He played Boba Fett in the 2006 game Star Wars: Empire at War. Morrison voiced Boba Fett again in DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront in 2015.
More recently, Morrison portrayed Abin Sur in the 2011 superhero film Green Lantern, provided the voice for Chief Tui – the title character’s father – in the Disney film Moana, and appeared in Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child.
He will soon appear as Thomas Curry in the forthcoming Aquaman feature.
