It’s difficult to imagine that Tony’s simple dream over 30 years ago to “work as an actor” would take him to Mexico, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, England, Bulgaria, Canada, and across the United States. Even to the stage of the Disney Concert Hall.

Tony spent the first 12 years of his professional life almost exclusively in the theatre; appearing Off-Broadway in an acclaimed production of “Filumena” and in lead roles on the stages of America’s top regional theatres, including the Mark Taper Forum, American Conservatory Theatre, Berkeley Rep, Williamstown Theatre Festival, La Jolla Playhouse, and the Old Globe. Theatrical credits include such classic characters as ‘Cyrano’, ‘Iago’, ‘Skylock’, ‘Uncle Vanya’, and ‘Jack Henry Abbot’ in “In the Belly of the Beast”.

Hoping to expand his craft and career, Tony moved to Los Angeles to seek work in film and television; where the opportunities have been varied and rewarding. His film work includes appearances opposite Johnny Depp in Ted Demme’s Blow,  Antonio Banderas and Anthony Hopkins in The Mask of Zorro and The Legend of Zorro, and Chris Cooper in John Sayles’ Lone Star. His TV Guest appearances include recurring roles on Dexter, CSI: NY, Seinfeld, The Practice, Charmed, and a long running role on Stargate: SG-1 as ‘Master Bratac’.  Currently, Tony can be seen as ‘Geppetto’ in ABC’s smash hit Once Upon a Time.    He is also busy working on the new Showcase SF series Continuum.

Tony will be with us all weekend at Polaris, including in attendance at the Blastoff Party!
