Dominic Purcell Net Worth $2 Million

He was born in England, but the family moved to Australia (Sydney) when Dominic was just two years old. His parents are Norwegian and Irish. Dominic went on to join the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. That is how Dominic became interested in the stage and on-screen performances.

He started off using the television with “Home And Away” in 1991 where Dominic was viewed as a policeman. There was a draught after this as Dominic did not really receive any offer. So Dominic attempted many different things. The next break Dominic got was in 1997 with “Raw FM” where he played the part of Granger Hutton. It was telecast over 13 episodes. There is no looking back from there. He kept receiving offers often. The very first film Dominic did was in 2000 — “Mission: Impossible II”. Since that time, Purcell has acted in over 20 films. Nevertheless, Dominic is to this day, best known for his performance in “Prison Break” as Lincoln Burrows. This television drama to the Fox network became highly popular. It ran for four seasons between 2005 and 2009.

1Strong angular face and intense gaze.
#Quote
1People have asked me why are Australians and Brits so good at American accents, and it's quite simple. We grew up listening to the American sound on our TV. That's why American actors have a hard time with foreign accents.
2I'm a hands-on dad. I love my kids more than anything. It's very important to me. I'd give myself a 10 out of 10 for being a dad.
3I don't watch TV dramas. I watch ESPN, HBO boxing, National Geographic Channel and I kind of like to get some DVDs, movies that I haven't seen and I just pop them in.
4I'm very appreciative and humbled by the success of 'Prison Break.'
5Yeah, I'm a physical kind of guy. I've always liked being physical. It takes a stuntman to really say, 'Look, we don't want you to do this. No, no, I'm serious, you're not going to do this' to get me not to do my stuff.
6My fighting style, if you will, is a combination of mimicking, cowboy films and boxing that I have done throughout my life.
7I've been here for five years, maybe four. I was doing 'John Doe,' and I was working ridiculous hours on that, and I was speaking American all day and then I'd get home and speak Australian and I just felt so exhausted by going back and forth that I just decided to speak it all the time. Now I just speak American.
