JJ Feild stars in "Captain America: The First Avenger," opposite Chris Evans and Hugo Weaving, as Montgomery Falsworth.

JJ Feild, whose full name is John Joseph Feild, was born in Boulder, Colorado, in 1978, but moved to England when he was a baby. Although he was brought up in London, he has spent most of his life living in both continents.

After traveling across Tibet age 17, JJ earned a place on the three-year course at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. Upon its completion, JJ landed several TV jobs, but it was after playing Richard in "Six Degrees of Separation" at the Crucible Theatre, that he was approached by an American manager, who took him to Los Angeles. Thereafter he spent two months acting with Matthew Modine, Vanessa Redgrave, Mia Sara and Sir Richard Attenborough before breaking into film with the movie "Last Orders." Directed by Fred Schepisi, JJ shared the role of Jack Dodds with Michael Caine (playing the younger version.) The cast also included Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren, Tom Courtenay, David Hemmings and Ray Winstone, and after a great response from the London Film Festival, it was released in January of 2002.

The next four months were spent filming "K19: The Widowmaker" in the North Atlantic. JJ played the shaky Andrei Pritoola, alongside Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson, and the movie was released in the summer of 2002. Straight from the freezing seas, JJ flew to Borneo to play his first lead role in Christian Levering's "The Intended." JJ had to loose 21 pounds and perfect a Northern accent to play the surveyor stranded in the rainforest. He was stretched to the limits in this role, playing the broken down lover of Janet McTeer, tormented by Brenda Fricker and Olympia Dukakis.

From 2002 to 2005, JJ filmed the lead role of Tulse Luper in Peter Greenaway's most ambitious project to date, "The Tulse Luper Suitcase."

In 2006, he traveled to Palestine and Israel to research the lead role of Bobby Goldman for the film "O Jerusalem," with Ian Holm and Said Tagmaoui.

He then took on the role of Frederic Garland in the BBC's two-part adaptation of multi award-winning writer Philip Pullman's "The Ruby in the Smoke." In 2007 JJ filmed the male lead, Henry Tilney, in Jon Jones' next project, an adaptation of Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey," which was screened on ITV in the spring of 2007 as part of their Jane Austen season. These have all been seen to great success in America on "Masterpiece Theatre," along with JJ's other dramas, including "The Secret Life of Mrs. Beaton," "Death on the Nile," "To the Ends of the Earth," "Perfect Strangers" and "Nicholas Nickleby."

JJ chose to spend 2008 on stage, firstly taking the lead role in Jean Anhuils "Ring Round the Moon" for Shaun Matthius in London's West End, and then in the Olivier Award-winning production of "The Pride" for Jamie Lloyd at the Royal Court. After filming with Liam Cunningham on "Northanger Abbey," JJ was paired up with him again on "Blood: The Last Vampire," which was shot in Argentina and China for five months. Produced by Bill Kong ("Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon," "Hero," "House of Flying Daggers"), it would be the first 'Manga' live-action film.

Straight from China to London, JJ filmed "Telstar," which was written and directed by Nick Moran; the project saw him play Heinz Burt, 1960s singer and protégé of the incredible Joe Meek, in the tragic story of Meek's life. He starred alongside Con O'Neill as Meek, Kevin Spacey, James Corden, Ralf Little and Pam Ferris.

JJ went on to film "Centurion" for Neil Marshall and Celador Films, alongside Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Olga Kurylenko, Liam Cunningham and David Morrissey. Set in AD 117, it is an action-thriller based on the infamous Roman Ninth Legion. Filmed on the stunning eastern Scottish highlands, it was released in the UK in April 2010.

This year saw the release of "Third Star," where JJ played a leading role opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Burke. JJ played Miles, a member of a group of young friends, who decide to take a sudden trip to the picturesque coast line of Western Wales. The film is hilarious at times, yet an emotional story that follows the lives of a group of friends, and the tragic heroism that comes with it.
