Biography

Top fashion photographer David Bailey once called Lysette Anthony "The Face of the Eighties", but Anthony took the funds from her youthful career as an international model and invested them in acting lessons, eventually abandoning modeling altogether when the acting roles began coming full force. The daughter of actors Michael Anthony and Bernadette Miles, Anthony was the youngest member in the National Youth Theatre in her native England when she joined at age 14. Early roles were in TV remakes of classics, such as "Ivanhoe" and "Oliver Twist" (both CBS, 1982) as well as Lady Sarah in the miniseries "Princess Daisy" (NBC, 1983). She portrayed Angelique in NBC's 1991 update of "Dark Shadows" and scored a hit with critics as Sydney Pollack's aerobics instructor girlfriend in Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives" (1992). Anthony found herself in demand and she was cast as the second lead in "Look Who's Talking Now" (1993) and in leading roles in two 1994 TV-movies, "The Hard Truth" (HBO) and "Target of Suspicion" (USA). Anthony appeared on the big screen in two send-ups of classic tales, "Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde" and Mel Brooks' "Dracula: Dead and Loving It" (both 1995).
