Sullivan Stapleton is an Australian actor who is now a US superstar, best known for his roles in the television series SKY(BSkyB)/Cinemax/HBO Strike Back, Animal Kingdom, and Cut Snake.
Born on 14 June 1977, Stapleton is one of the outstanding Australian actors who has made a name for himself in the US film industry. He currently plays the lead role in the NBC crime drama Blindspot, which premiered on September 21, 2015.
Stapleton was born in Melbourne, Victoria, where he began his acting career with his younger sister Jacinta Stapleton, who was six years old at the time. His acting skills and fine face caught the attention of the director, who then invited him to act in his short film. With the support of his director, Stapleton trained at St. Martin’s Theatre in Melbourne, where he studied drama and theatre at Sandringham Secondary College (in Sandringham, Victoria, Australia).
At the age of 9, Stapleton received his actors’ union card and at the age of 11, he started working in the advertising industry. He made his first acting appearance on screen in 1994 in the Australian TV movie Baby Bath Massacre as Adrian.
Other Australian soap operas and TV productions in which he has starred include Neighbours, The Elephant Princess, Rush, Tangle, and the three-time silver Logie Award-winning Australian TV drama The Secret Life Of Us.
However, it was his appearance in the Academy Award-nominated film the Animal Kingdom, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010, which brought him his international breakthrough.
Today, Stapleton is a household name, a sought-after actor in film and television, and after his good looks and charisma, he has proven to be a remarkable talent. This has helped him win several awards, one of which was the “Breakthrough Award”, which Australians gave to the organization “Australians in Film”.
Sullivan Stapleton Married, Girlfriend, Wife
Sullivan Stapleton is undoubtedly one of the sexiest men we have in Hollywood, and in addition to his great acting skills, it could be one of the difficulties for him to settle into marriage.
Nonetheless, Sullivan’s dating history is quite fascinating, as he has dated women from different backgrounds. Sullivan certainly had managed to win over a lot of women. He started with Carla Bonner in 2007 and 2008 but broke up early enough to get together with Jo Beth Tailor, an Australian TV presenter, actress, and singer. But despite rumors about their marriage plans, the two separated after two years (2010).
Recently, rumors have circulated that Sullivan is in a romantic relationship with Jaimie Alexander – the co-actress from the TV show Blind Spot. The most heated rumor came shortly after Stapleton kissed Jaimie on the screen. What doesn’t seem clear enough is whether the couple is making plans to walk her down the aisle soon. But while we are still waiting patiently for the good news about the couple, Sullivan can be assumed to be single. He is not married yet, but he has a girlfriend.

Sullivan Stapleton Body, Teeth
Apart from having a great physique, Sullivan has sacrificed a lot to keep his body fit. He usually trains at Gym Jones in Utah, where he has experienced a grueling fitness routine.
Again, Sullivan never messes up his diet plans. When asked how he manages to maintain his brilliant figure, he simply says, “I keep my diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein,” says Stapleton. “If I consume carbohydrates, I prefer to drink them.”
The 40-year-old weighs 85 kilograms and is as tall as 6′ 1?. The size of his breasts, biceps, and waist are not yet known, but from the shape of his body, one might suspect that he is one of the few men with an enviable figure. Moreso, Sullivan Stapleton has green eyes and his hair is brown. His white teeth, which match his smile, are also one of his trademarks.
Sullivan Stapleton Net Worth
Sullivan Stapleton is one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors who has carved out a niche for himself in the film industry.

He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Stapleton Burger” chain) in Canberra, a football team (the “Melbourne Angels”), has launched his own brand of vodka (Pure Wonderstapleton – Australia).
More interesting is his love for fashion. The great actor owns a fashion line called “Sullivan Stapleton Seduction” and a best-selling perfume (With Love from Sullivan) to complement it. His estimated net worth is an astonishing $6.5 million with an annual salary of $2.4 million starting in 2017, but when his shares, real estate, and other assets are added, his net worth can exceed $145 million.
Stapleton is not only good looking but also good at heart. Apart from having a busy schedule, he loves to spend time with family and friends. He is also a fun-loving person who is very good at keeping his professional life separate from his private life.
Sullivan currently lives in Canberra, Australia, but he said he will purchase property in Los Angeles to facilitate his upcoming movies.
