Yep, he is, but many Australian and New Zealand actors have done well in the States, such as Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe, Guy Peirce, Karl Urban, Chris Hemsworth, and Sam Worthington. The late lamented Kevin Smith (Hercules and Xena's Ares) was apparently slated for a break-out role in Tears of the Sun before his tragic death, and Lucy Lawless, despite not being truly mainstream outside of genre, is also well known.

I'm unsure if the Beeb would insist on a home-grown actor should they recast the Master, but it may be possible if it's a cost issue.
