Already a household name in his native Australia, Hugh Jackman has now landed on Hollywood's list of leading men. He charmed Meg Ryan in the romantic comedy Kate & Leopold, battled Count Dracula with Kate Beckinsale in Van Helsing and is most famous for playing Wolverine alongside Halle Berry in the blockbuster X-Men series.
In Australia, Hugh plays a rugged cattle driver named The Drover, a character that has him earning comparisons to the legendary Clark Gable. Although Drover is a match for any man or beast, he's no match for Lady Ashley—and the two discover a love that cannot be.
