Australian heartthrob and crooner Hugh Sheridan opens up about the devastating earthquake in Nepal and his quest to find his missing brother lost in the devastation and the controversy that ensued.
Hugh Sheridan is an Australian actor, musician and television presenter, born in Adelaide, the second youngest of seven children.
At 16 Hugh was encouraged by his parents to study dance to support his music and drama. That same year his dance teacher Terry Simpson, suggested he audition for the prestigious Australian Ballet School, she knew that experiencing the rigorous and gruelling entry process would set Hugh up for future drama institution auditions. To Hugh's surprise (and his family's) Hugh was granted entry to the Advanced Diploma in Dance. So, he moved to Melbourne to study dance at the ABS, while there he also studied opera part time at the Victorian College of Arts under Monique Brunelle. As a student Hugh was selected to work with The Paris Opera Ballet, The English National Ballet and The Australian Ballet.
Hugh, at just 18, was accepted into full time Bachelor of Arts in Acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney.
In his final year Hugh won the role of Ben Rafter in Seven's pilot for Packed to the Rafters, a show that spanned six series, consistently holding #1 drama in Australia. Rafters would make him a household name and give rise to him winning four Silver Logies in a row.
As for his music, in 2010, Hugh signed with Sony Music Australia. He released the single "Just Can't Throw Us Away" which made an impressive #2 debut on the iTunes singles chart and was followed by the successful debut album "Speak Love”. In 2013 Hugh signed with Parker and Mr French and is managed by internationally renowned Todd Wagstaff. Hugh is back in the recording studio between the US and Australia, which plans to release a major project.
