Successfully shifted himself from an accomplished comedic performer to a respected Hollywood actor, Eric Bana has certainly made an achievement that few other thespians could hardly match. A unique blend of German and Croatian origin who was born on August 9, 1968 in Melbourne, Australia with the name Eric Banadinovich, this dark-haired guy had shown his interest in performing at a young age as he really enjoyed entertaining either his friends and family with impressions and jokes. Even so, the thought of turning this hobby to a professional career did not really come to his mind until he was persuaded to try stand-up comedy while working as a barman at Melbourne's Castle Hotel in 1991. From this point, he gradually flourished a deep fondness in acting and since then began to look for a way to establish a good career in entertainment industry.
