Anthony chased his dream of acting, producing, and directing his own feature film by putting a secret plan into effect. A long shot, yet he was convinced he could pull it off. He fired his agent and soon after took a break from acting to study the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and pursued to win a medal in the sport. He planned to build and open up a small school, temporarily teaching the martial art to beginners for five years and save every dollar to produce his film. Five years turned to seven, however he did exactly that.
Anthony traveled to Brazil where he won the bronze medal in the Worlds in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and came back to Canada to win the gold medal in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in 2003. It was soon after that when he met and connected with Jeff Joslin his new BJJ teacher. Jeff became a recognizable name himself by successfully winning his way into the UFC, the highest pinnacle of mixed martial arts in the world. Anthony landed a reoccurring role on the TV show “Out There with Melissa DiMarco” on CITY TV and began acting again, still continuing secretly to pursue his plan for his feature film.
Anthony enjoys writing and took the time to write a psychological thriller screenplay called “A Secret Cross” in 2011. “A Secret Cross” is now a complete feature film and stars Ex-UFC fighter Jeff Joslin as a supporting lead.
