From the Vault – Before They Were Famous: Russell Crowe

  • Wednesday 1 Nov

G These days Russell Crowe is known for his movie career, but back in 1985 he was busy trying to make a name for himself in the music business. In fact, he was trying to make a somewhat different name for himself than the one we now know him by. Back then, Russell went by Russ le Roq, and was the leader of Auckland band Roman Antix. Here he's seen promoting their debut video on teen music show Shazam!, looking fresh-faced, but already showing the drive and determination that would soon land him in Hollywood. Fast-forward 15 years and he would be leading Romans of a different kind, playing General Maximum Meridius in Gladiator.
