Callan Mulvey (born 23 February 1975) is an Australian actor. He is best known for his roles as Mark Moran on the Australian drama Underbelly, Sergeant Brendan 'Josh' Joshua in Rush, and as Bogdan 'Draz' Drazic in Heartbreak High. His American roles include Scyllias in 300: Rise of an Empire, Jack Rollins in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), and Anatoli Knyazev in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).

Early life

Of Scottish, Irish and Māori descent, Mulvey was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and moved to Australia when he was seven years old, growing up in the northern beaches of Sydney.


Mulvey's personal interest in skateboarding and rollerblading led him to work as a stunt double about two years prior to winning the role of Drazic in Heartbreak High. His first role was of a victim of a robbery in a police training video.

In 2004, he re-entered the spotlight for the release of Thunderstruck.

Mulvey had guest spots on Home and Away (as Johnny Cooper) during 2006 to 2008 and McLeod's Daughters during 2007.

He starred in the 2008 Australian underworld crime show Underbelly as Mark Moran, and appeared in police series Rush as Sgt. Brendan "Josh" Joshua.

In 2012, he starred in the underworld crime miniseries Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms as Mark Anthony "Snoddy" Spencer.

In 2012, he appeared in Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty as Saber. The following year, he starred in The Turning, directed by Robert Connelly.

In 2014, he appeared in 300: Rise of an Empire as Syllias, as Jack Rollins in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as Skylar in the Katie Holmes black comedy Miss Meadows, and as Jack Taylor in Kill Me Three Times.

Mulvey played Anatoli Knyazev in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). In the film, Knyazev does not appear as KGBeast and is only a hired gun.

In 2016, he appeared briefly in Warcraft, the film adaptation of the video game Warcraft, in which he was credited as Warrior, as well as joining the main cast of Starz TV's Power, for season three, as Dean. Callan has also completed the horror film Delirium, and is in post-production for the films Beyond Skyline, the sequel to the cult-classic Skyline, and Desolate, a drama based on a family of farmers living in a dystopian future. He filmed Bleeding Steel, a science fiction thriller starring Jackie Chan. Mulvey is also filming In Like Flynn, a biopic of Errol Flynn's early years.

Personal life

Mulvey was injured in a serious car accident in 2003, in a head-on collision at 100 km/h (62 mph). He was trapped in the vehicle for almost an hour until he could be freed from the wreckage. 17 titanium plates were inserted to repair the fractures to his face and jaw. His left knee and ankle were also badly fractured. Mulvey also permanently lost his vision in his left eye.

He married Rachel Thomas, an academic and musician, in Byron Bay in 2010.
