Nathan Phillips stars in the feature film "Chernobyl Diaries" as Michael.

Nathan Phillips had his first leading role in the award-winning film "Australian Rules," which screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2002. He then commenced shooting a leading role in the American film "Warriors of Virtue: The Return to Tao" in China, and promptly followed that up playing Dave in the Australian comedy "Take Away." He next worked on the intense dramatic film by Paul Currie, "One Perfect Day," acting alongside Abbie Cornish and playing the wild character Trig. He then played the lead role of surfer bad boy Brandon in the comedy/drama "Under the Radar."

2005 saw Phillips explore vast extremes within his craft by playing the lovable Phillip in the comedy feature "You and Your Stupid Mate," and Ben Mitchell in the box office hit horror film "Wolf Creek," which screened at Sundance and Cannes before opening later that year.

Phillips' career continued to grow when he was cast opposite Samuel L. Jackson in the thriller 2006 "Snakes on a Plane," which opened at number one at the box office in the U.S. and Australia. He followed that up by working on the gritty dramatic Australian feature "West," which screened in competition at the Berlin Film Festival. He filmed his second U.S. feature as the action star in Andy Cheng's auto-thriller "Redline," which co-starred Nadia Bjorlin and Eddie Griffin.

In 2007, Phillips shot "Surfer, Dude" on location in Malibu, alongside Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson, and followed that up with "Dying Breed," which was filmed in Australia and accepted into the Tribeca Film Festival in 2008. He also played journalist Malcolm Rennie in Robert Connolly's dramatic true story feature "Balibo," released in 2009, and was also involved behind the scenes as the East Timor Unit Director. This was the first time he was credited in a creative role on a full length feature. He followed this up by producing, directing and starring in "Message from the CEO," a short film that screened at festivals in 2009.

Phillips returned to his home in Australia in 2010 to play Joey in the picturesque feature "Summer Coda," also starring Rachel Taylor, Alex Dimitriades and Jacki Weaver. He directed and produced another short film, "Post Apocalyptic Man," in 2011, action-packed with many stars from Australia, including Michael Dorman and Angus Sampson. The film will be in competition at the St. Kilda Film Festival in 2012, where it will have its world premiere; Phillips is preparing to direct the feature version in 2013.

Back in the U.S., Phillips most recently acted in "Satellite of Love," shot in Austin, Texas. He plays the lead role of Samuel, alongside Zachary Knighton and Janina Gavankar.
