A small taste of whats to come:

Let’s get to know a little more about Anthony!

Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A. When preparing for a new role I like to do extensive research on my character, I want to find out what makes then tick, what makes then laugh, how they react to certain situations. I want to get into the characters head so much, I become the them! I hear story’s about people who have to stay in character for months at a time so they don’t loose it. Personally I have no problem getting in and out of character while on set or at home.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Its difficult to breakdown my favorite actor into just a single person! I think Denzel Washington had the greatest emotion of any actor. Leonardo DiCaprio can get into a character better than any actor I’ve ever seen. And Tom Hanks is just all around AMAZING!
Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?
A. A dream role for me would be would be someone with duel personalities. I really like the idea of playing multiple characters in the same movie and showing off my talents. I would also like to play a sadistic serial killer type. Let my crazy come out! The crazier and freakier the role, the better. Someone like the Joker, or any character from Rob Zombie’s films!
Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?
 A. I am a villain at heart! I will always prefer to play “the bad guy”! The hero is to easy and its always the same story… The villain gets to have all the fun! He gets the bad girls! The villain gets to do what ever he wants where the hero follows all the rules.
Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.
A. A fun fact about myself…. I did a commercial for Hydroxycut out in LA and lost 33 pounds!
Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?
A. Honestly I haven’t played a role that was overly difficult yet! I imagine playing Zombie will be my greatest and most difficult role to play!
Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?
 A. I played the role of a heartbroken ex boyfriend trying to get his girl back, that was fun. Mostly because all of the kissing and heavy petting scenes!
A sample of Anthony’s work-
Q. Tell us about where you got your training?
A. I took acting classes throughout middle and high school and attended The Naples Players acting school as well.
Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?
A. Don’t give up on your dreams! I’m still chasing mine.
Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?
A. I would actually prefer to write and direct movies! The acting is secondary to that! My dream is to make movies of my own. I have so much information in my head I would like to put on paper I could probably make 4 movies right off the back! I just need somebody to write while I talk… I hate sitting for long periods of time!
