Antony Milne trained at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in the UK and then went straight into regional Pantomime (“Alice in Wonderland” – Mad Hatter)! This was to set the format for his career. After a couple of years working in London’s West End both onstage (“Salad Days” – Company) and backstage (“Private Lives”, “Me and My Girl’, “Hidden Laughter”), he also worked on tours for Peter Gabriel, Genesis and Phil Collins.
After an ITV television documentary with Sir Cameron Mackintosh, USA was calling and Antony landed South Floridian stage roles in “The Importance of Being Earnest” – Jack Worthing, “Tartuffe” – Tartuffe, “Molly Sweeney” – Frank Sweeney, and “The Prince” – The Prince.
With all good intentions, Antony chose to move to New York to expand his options. Life in Manhattan quickly turned to tragedy on 9/11 and it was time to start a new life in Australia. After adapting and settling in OZ, a TV movie role presented itself (“Jessica” – Codlington KC) and then television opportunities took over, including intense roles in “All Saints”, “Rogue Nation”, “Underbelly”, “Home and Away”, ‘Rake”, and “House of Bond”.
Is it about the journey or the destination?
