Antony Starr is a New Zealand actor best known for his starring role as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Pennsylvania, where he continues his criminal activities even as he's being hunted by the gangsters he betrayed years earlier, in the action drama television series Banshee.
He had a starring role as Senior Sergeant Charlie Lewis in the fourth and final season of the police procedural television series Rush, in 2011; and played twins Jethro and Van West in the comedy-drama television series Outrageous Fortune, from 2005-2010.
Starr came relatively late to acting, starting his career in the mid-nineties, with his first screen appearance being on the iconic Kiwi soap Shortland Street. His natural on-screen charm quickly lead to roles in New Zealand and international productions.
In 2006 Starr was cast in the dual roles of twins Van and Jethro West in Outrageous Fortune, a show which grew into the most popular, long-running drama series in NZ television history.
As a result Starr received six consecutive Best New Zealand Actor awards, won Best Actor at the 2007 Pan Asian Television Awards and was a finalist as Best Actor at the 2009 Seoul International Drama Awards.
2011 saw Antony appear in the Australian feature Say Nothing.
