Notes

Anthony Towler has been acting since 1989 in various stage and screen roles. He has cerebral palsy (no speech issues) and has always managed to incorporate this into his performances. His biggest achievement was playing Robin Goodfellow in A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was a role he didn't think a disabled person would ever get to play. Anthony bought a strong physicality to the role. Using prat falls and wrestling falls to create a memorable performance. A reoccurring role in the Havoc tv show helped develop his comedic timing and improvisational skill. In 2013 he wrote and performed in his own play Defensability. A comedy about being disabled that included moments from his own life. Outside of acting Anthony is a writer and director of short films. He is also a keen cricket and wrestling fan. "My disability is my advantage. It instantly changes a performance. It can be used to surprise the audience and subvert their expectations."
