Hugh Jackman (54) talks about his loss! The Australian actor’s father passed away in 2021. At the time, the Wolverine actor was in the midst of filming his recent movie, The Son. Ironically, the powerful drama is about an intense father-son relationship. During this difficult time, the support of the local film crew was of great importance to Hugh!
“I’m so grateful to every member of the cast and crew,” said the 54-year-old in an interview on “The Graham Norton Show”, adding: “When you go through something like that and make a film that is so intense, you can you just can’t do it alone and you have to lean on others.” In the film, Hugh plays the father of a boy struggling with mental health issues. The emotional shooting would have inspired the father of two to reconsider his role as a parent and to change it a bit.
Hugh mentioned how close he was to his late father in The Guardian a few weeks ago. “My mum left us when I was eight years old – so my dad raised us, he instilled really great values in me.” The Golden Globes winner continued: “He was never interested in things like money and fame, he advised us to get a good education and treat the people around us well.”
