Australian actor Joel Edgerton (left) said he was afraid of leaving his breakthrough TV role to launch a movie career in Hollywood. The 43-year-old actor became a household name after playing bricklayer Will McGill in drama series The Secret Life of Us.
He said it was a huge step to walk away from the hit TV show in order to pursue his dream of working on movies in America, reports Contactmusic. “It was a terrifying thing to leave. Hanging out with that cast, being on a TV show that people respected that was well written and executed so well,” Joel says.
