Tim Pocock held audiences captive with his role as ‘Cyclops’ to fellow Aussie Hugh Jackman’s infamous ‘Wolverine’ in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” He’s since transitioned into NBC’s one-hour dramedy series “Camp” opposite another acclaimed Australian talent, Rachel Griffiths. Pocock stars as Senior Counselor ‘Robbie Matthews’ at the summer family camp where parents decompress over cocktails, kids run amuck, and the staff fall in and out of love.
No stranger to productions Down Under, Pocock was a series regular on the popular teen series “Dance Academy,” for which he also wrote and performed an original composition. Additional credits include an arc on “Home and Away,” “COPS LAC,” the thriller feature “Lemon Tree Passage,” and the WWII drama “Battle Ground” for Lionsgate.
Pocock’s professional debut came at age 10, when he was cast in “The Sound of Music.” An avid singer, he was then offered a lead role in the Australian Opera Company’s production of “The Magic Flute” and spent the next five years working with opera Australia; performing over 100 times at the renown Sydney Opera House in 12 productions, including Baz Lurhman’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “Carmen,” “Tosca,” and “Macbeth.” He further honed his craft at the National Institute of the Dramatic Arts and Sydney Film School.
