Paul Hogan

Born: 10/8/1939
Birthplace: Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia

Actor who had been active in the Austrailian entertainment industry for years before coming to the attention of American audiences in the title role of Crocodile Dundee (1986) and its sequel (1988). He won a Golden Globe for that performance, and was nominated for an Oscar for helping to write the screenplay. He developed and starred in The Paul Hogan Show (1973–84) and starred in the British film Hogan in London (1975) before turning his hand to writing. He married his Crocodile Dundee co-star, Linda Koswalski, in 1990, the same year that their third film together, Almost an Angel, was released. Though he continues to work in films, Hogan has become familiar as the voice of Australia in advertisements for the Australian tourist industry, Subaru Outback, and Foster's beer.
