Anthony began performing at the tender age of four, when a serious addiction to George Formby led to the acquisition of a ukulele, much to the dismay of his family and friends!
This began many years as a touring variety artist, appearing in many shows all over the country.
Anthony’s first professional acting job was back in 1999 as the Mad Hatter in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ for Pendle Productions. This touring show lead to ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, followed by Tom Sawyer in ‘Huckleberry Finn’.
After that show he appeared as Teddy Deakin in Arnold Ridley’s ‘The Ghost Train’ which he also directed in Chelmsford. Later that year pantomime, once again in Chelmsford as Dame in ‘Mother Goose’. Five seasons with ‘The Flanagan And Allen Story’ Written and directed by Johnny Barrs, then ‘Dick Whittington’ in Northampton.
On screen Anthony has appeared as Jonathan Hesketh-Bell in the film ‘Dead Money’, directed and written by Tim Wyatt.
Many radio commercials and voice over work have followed and happily continue to do so!
Music features heavily in Anthony’s life as does his fascination with the 1920s, 30 and 40’s. This led to him joining Cafe Society where he plays banjo, ukulele and warbles his way through the classic tunes of the day.
His recent venture ,’The Sunburst Orchestra’ shows Anthony reviving the George Formby classics of the day with a full band.
