Teen Actor Brent Anthony Talks about New TV Series on Amazon
HI BRENT, THANKS FOR YOUR TIME! COULD YOU START BY TELLING US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF?
I’m an actor/model who has been in the business for 12 years. Just a simple guy who loves doing outdoor activities (biking, hiking, fishing, paddleboard, boogie boarding, dirt biking, swimming, tennis and the list goes on… My family and friends are very important to me. If I’m going to do something, I give it 100% and do no give up. I’m a guy who believes in integrity. Doing the right thing. I make my own choices and do not follow the herd.
HOW AND WHEN EXACTLY DID YOU REALIZE YOU HAD THE PASSION FOR MODELLING & ACTING?
My mom started me off acting when I was 4 years old. I quickly learned that this was an activity that I was able to have fun doing. What’s better than making new friends on each new set? I met my best friend Norton Leufven (Superstore) on set when I was about 7 years old. We have been buds every since.
CAN YOU TELL ME A BIT ABOUT THE HUNTER’S ANTHOLOGY?
The Hunters Anthology is a drama tv series that premiers February 12th. on Amazon. It’s about a demon hunter named Mac that is trapped in a subway with several people. He has to figure out who the demon is. I haven’t been able to see it yet but each person has an interesting story. Have you ever looked at a random stranger and wondered what their life is like? This takes us into their darkest secrets.
WHAT ELSE ARE YOU INTERESTED IN AT THE MOMENT?
I’m an outdoorsy kind of guy and enjoy dirt biking, fishing and just recently was allowed to go camping on my own .. well, with one of my bro’s. We thought we’d live off the land and sea like the show Naked and Afraid (except, not naked). Couldn’t catch a fish or a rabbit but we did catch 20 crabs which were delicious!
WHAT KIND OF PREPARATION OR RESEARCH DO YOU HAVE TO DO IN ORDER TO PLAY YOUR ROLE?
It really depends on the role. If it’s an established character with specific characteristics then I imitate the character the best I can but if it’s something less specific I bring the character to life the way I see the character.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN THREE YEARS FROM NOW?
My goal is to be a leading man on the big screen. I’d really like to be in Action Movies as well as a Marvel Character.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH OUR READERS?
Make sure to go check out Hunters Anthology on Feb.12 at Amazon. Watch for me in the episode “You Can’t Unwish a Wish”. I have two parts. Let’s see if you can figure both out!
