Biography

Born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1975, Antony Starr got his start on a couple of episodes of "Xena: Warrior Princess" (Syndicated, 1995-2001), and had his first substantial part on "Shortland Street" (TV2, 1992-) in 2001. Set in a New Zealand hospital, the soap opera was the longest running drama in the country's history. In 2001, he premiered in his first series regular role on another medical drama "Mercy Peak" (TV1, 2001-04). He gained a bit of international exposure in 2004, when he appeared in the US comedy "Without a Paddle" (2004) and "The World's Fastest Indian" (2005), starring Anthony Hopkins. In 2005, he debuted in as his break out role(s), playing twins on the New Zealand comedy-drama "Outrageous Fortune" (TV3, 2005-2010).  Starr played sons of the matriarch of a crime family who has decided it's time for the family to give up crime. The role made him a star in New Zealand and garnered him a number of awards. In 2011, Starr appeared as a series regular in the final season of the Australian police drama "Rush" (Network Ten, 2008-2011). Another Australian drama, "Tricky Business" (Nine Network, 2012), followed, but failed to gather an audience. The same year, he got rave reviews for his role in the complicated drama "Wish You Were Here" (2012). In 2013, he premiered as the nameless ex-con, who takes over the identity of the new Sheriff of a small town in "Banshee" (Cinemax, 2013-).
