Sharlto Copley spent his childhood with a brother in his hometown, where they was raised by their father, Doctor Bruce Copley, a retired university professor, and mother Linda Stocks; his brother is Donovan Copley, who is known as the lead singer of Hot Water. He went to St. Andrew’s Preparatory School in Grahamstown, after which he attended Redhill School in Morningside, Johannesburg. However, he left high school to pursue his career in design and 3D animation, so he worked for a while alongside director Neill Blomkamp at his production company, so establishing his net worth.

Speaking about Sharlto’s acting career, it began when he made his debut appearance in the short video “Alive In Joburg” in 2005, however, his breakthrough didn’t come until 2009, when he starred in the role of Wikus Van De Merwe in the film “District 9”, directed by Neill Blomkamp, for which he won two IGN Movie Awards in the same year, and was nominated for such awards as a Golden Schmoes Award, Scream Award, MTV Movie Award and Teen Choice Award, among many others, potentially adding a considerable amount to his net worth. In the following year, he featured as Murdock in the film entitled “The A-Team”, starring alongside Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson.

Sharlto’s next major roles came in 2013, when he was chosen to portray James Corrigan in the film “Europa Report”, playing Kruger in the film “Elysium” and as Adrian in the film “Old Boy”. During the following year, he featured as King Stefan in the film entitled “Maleficent”, starring along with Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, after which he provided the voice to the title role in the 2015 film “Chappie” and starred in the role of Jimmy in Ilya Naishuller’s film “Hardcore Henry” (2015). During the same year, he was selected to play Christian Walker in the TV series “Powers”, which lasted for a year. All of these roles increased his net worth by a large margin.

To speak further about his career, Sharlto starred in the role of Ron Hollar in the film “The Hollars” and was cast as Vernon in the film “Free Fire”, both in 2016. Most recently, he featured as Mitch Rusk in the film entitled “Gringo” (2018), so his net worth is certainly rising.

Additional to his career as an actor, Sharlto has worked as a director and producer on such projects as the short video “Alive In Joburg” (2005), another short video entitled “Wikus And Charlize” (2010) and “Hardcore Henry” (2015), all of which also contributed to his wealth.

Regarding to his personal life, Sharlto Copley has been married to actress and supermodel Tanit Phoenix Copley since 2016; the couple has a daughter together. They divide their time between their residences in Hollywood, California and Cape Town, South Africa.

1Often plays a main character in Neill Blomkamp films
2South African accent
1[How he got into 'Maleficent'] It came through my agents, and my agents gave me the script and said, "This is something going around town. A lot of people are going after it. You're probably not going to get in there." I was like, "Look, I really would love to do this." I went after it quite aggressively, in the sense of doing a tape. Actually, if I remember correctly, there was a delay because they thought it was going to someone else, but they were not sure. And then, as soon as they said, "We might be able to get your tape in there," I did it and they sent it.
2I'm not particularly fond of playing villains. I do want to be a working actor, and I've had to look at what was offered to me, what roles I could get, and what I could do with them. Even though I'm not drawn to putting those kinds of darker characters out there, I think it's an interesting challenge.
3[the challenge in playing 'Adrian', the mysterious baddie in Oldboy (2013)] It was finding the truth in that, taking somebody who could have been soft as a child and having him damaged by things that happened to him. That happens to everybody. This is obviously an extreme case. I think every soft child in the world gets damaged. All of of us come into the world and get damaged. It's just a matter of how much.
4I feel so comfortable in an acting role, you know, as an actor. Maybe it's because I came into it late. If anything, I've felt frustrated that I can't carry a film because everything since District 9 (2009) has been supporting roles. I haven't found leads that I thought were good enough or there were twenty names ahead of me that will get the lead on a really good project.
5To some degree Hollywood doesn't know what to do with me because the characters I do are so different. But hopefully that will give me longevity.
1Good friends with Director Neill Blomkamp. They attended the same high school.
2He believes he was named after Thaddeus Sholto, a character featured in a radio production of "The Sign of the Four" - a Sherlock Holmes story.
3He is in a relationship with South African supermodel and actress Tanit Phoenix Copley beginning of January 2012 and have bought a house together in Los Angeles. Sharlto proposed to Tanit on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, on the 28 March 2015. They got married on 15 February 2016, in Cape Town, South Africa.
4He was a huge fan of The A-Team (1983) growing up and got to play one of them in the 2010 adaptation.
