Anthony also plays a pivotal role in Ordeal by Innocence
The last year has been very busy for Anthony, who also played a key role in the latest BBC Agatha Christie drama, Ordeal by Innocence. In the series, Anthony plays Jack Argyll, who in the first few minutes of the show is imprisoned for the murder of his adopted mother, and subsequently killed in prison. Speaking about the role, Anthony told the BBC: "In some ways Jack is like Lady Macbeth, he's not really in the story that much but when he is he makes it count. He makes every scene about him. He's the provocateur that comes in and shakes it all up. Jack is always active and hardly ever passive in a scene so that kind of a character is very satisfying to play." Anthony also appeared as David Donnelly, Erin's main love interest, in the critically acclaimed Channel 4 show Derry Girls.
