Anthony Stewart Head

- - - - -
[Plays Rupert Giles]

Before he was catapulted into superstardom by a strange series about vampires, Anthony Stewart Head had worked long and hard on stage, TV and film. Despite a CV as long as a telephone directory, he was still best known on both sides of the Atlantic for his work on a certain coffee commercial.

Here's a taste of that prolific career. For the BBC, he has appeared in 'Bergerac', 'Howard's Way', 'Secret Army', 'Accident', 'The Grudge Fight' and 'Pulaski'. Tony also starred in the British television productions 'Enemy of the Door' and 'Love in a Cold Climate'.

In America, Tony was a regular cast member on the sci-fi television series 'VR.5'. He also guest starred on the series 'Highlander' and the police drama 'NYPD Blue'. Additional credits include the Showtime movie 'Royce' with Jim Belushi; and the feature films 'A Prayer for the Dying', 'Devil's Hill' and 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'.

Born in London and brought up in Middlesex, Tony divides his time between LA and Somerset, where he lives with his girlfriend in a haunted house. We are happy to report that BBC Online are big fans of Tony, and we think he's a throroughly nice bloke. When asked by a journalist if he would accept the role of James Bond, Tony said he would. We look forward to seeing him drinking martinis instead of that boring coffee.
