Pocock had his first professional engagement as a performer at the young age of 10, when he was cast in "The Sound of Music." An avid singer, he was then offered a principal role in the Australian Opera Company's 1995 production of "The Magic Flute" and spent the next five years working with Opera Australia, performing over 100 times at the Sydney Opera House in 12 productions, including Neil Armfield's "Billy Budd" and Baz Lurhmann's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," as well as "Carmen," "Tosca," "Macbeth" and a reprisal of his role in "The Magic Flute" for its 1999 season.
With those and other independent theater credits to his name, Pocock then turned his attention to acting on screen after studying at the National Institute of the Dramatic Arts and Sydney Film School.
Soon after completing these courses, Pocock was awarded the coveted role of Cyclops in the blockbuster film "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," directed by Gavin Hood. His other film credits include lead roles in "Lemon Tree Passage" and "Forbidden Ground," both due out in 2013.
For television, Pocock had a series regular role in the Australian series "Dance Academy" in 2009 and reprised the role in 2011 for the second season. Pocock also wrote and performed an original composition for "Dance Academy 2" entitled "Betrayal."
Other television credits include lead guest roles in "Home and Away" for Seven Network and "Cops LAC" for Nine Network.
