Samuel "Sam" Worthington (born 2 August 1976) is an award-winning Australian actor.

Worthington won a scholarship to the John Curtin School of Performings Arts in Fremantle, and then studied acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney.

After graduating from NIDA in 1998, Worthington performed in a production of "Judas Kiss" for Company B at the Belvoir St Theatre. He went on to act in a series of Australian movies and TV series; including a supporting role in "Bootmen" (2000) and leading roles in "Dirty Deeds" (2002), "Gettin' Square" (2003), "Somersault" (2004) and a modern Australian retelling of "Macbeth" (2006). Worthington won the 2004 Australian Film Institute (AFI) Award for Best Lead Actor for his role in "Somersault". He is well known in Australia for his role as Howard in the acclaimed Australian TV series "Love My Way", where he played the main love interest of the female lead.

Worthington's international film career began with a series of small roles in Hollywood productions such as "Hart's War" (2002) and "The Great Raid" (2005), which was filmed in Australia. He was one of several actors who was under consideration to take over the role of James Bond from Pierce Brosnan for the 2006 film "Casino Royale". Director Martin Campbell stated that only Worthington and Henry Cavill were in serious contention along with eventual winner Daniel Craig. In 2007, James Cameron chose Worthington for a leading role in his science fiction thriller " Avatar". On 12 February 2008 it was reported that he had been cast, on Cameron's recommendation, in "Terminator 4" as Marcus who may be the new Terminator.
