Anton Blake


Anton Blake began his professional career as a 16-year-old, playing small roles in Athol Fugard's ground-breaking Space Theatre in Cape Town, South Africa. The company included such local luminaries as Leslee Udwin, Aletta Bezuidenhout, Sean Taylor and Fatima Dike. Two years later, he performed at London's Old Vic, playing Macheath in a Youth Production of The Beggar's Opera (John Gay). Shortly thereafter, he attended the Drama Centre, where contemporaries included Colin Firth and former Bond-girl, Maryam d'Abo. He has performed extensively onstage in London, Edinburgh, New York, Johannesburg and Berlin, where noteworthy roles have included Mick in The Caretaker (Pinter), Cassius in Julius Caesar (Shakespeare), Martin Taylor in Brimstone & Treacle (Dennis Potter) and AA in Emigrants (Mroszek); eminent directors he has worked with include Luc Bondy and Stephen Daldry. Anton played the vengeful aristocrat, Montresor, in Mario Cavalli's award-winning film The Cask of Amontillado, (based on Edgar Allan Poe's eerie short story); he has also appeared in a number of films and television series, most recently for the BBC, where roles have included Horatio Nelson's best friend, Henry Blackwood and heart-transplant pioneer, Christiaan Barnaard, in an upcoming dramatized documentary. His ability with accents has ensured a growing career as voice-over artist where he has played various Russians, Germans and Americans for international commercials.
