He played the character Messa in the “Hooves and Harlots” episode in 1995. then David in “The Giant Killer” episode in 1996. He also appeared in a minor role as Craig on primetime television in New Zealand, in the medical soap drama “Shortland Street” in 1996, that had its first broadcast in May 1992 and is still ongoing.

He was given a recurring guest lead role as one of the good‑for‑nothing white trash Van der Velter brothers named Todd in the drama, “Mercy Peak,” for 21 episodes throughout its three seasons (2001-2003).

He then returned to “Shortland Street” for a recurring role as Stratford Wilson (2000-2002), and the following year he was given a lead role in the television film, “Skin and Bone.” It was said to be a physically demanding role, as the cast did the rugby scenes in freezing conditions up until two in the morning.

Further success

Television

“Outrageous Fortune”

His biggest break came in 2005, when he auditioned for and landed the role of the identical twins, Van and Jethro West, in what became one of New Zealand’s longest-running TV series, “Outrageous Fortune.” One of the series’ creators, Rachel Lang, happened to be the co-creator of “Mercy Peak” in which Antony had a recurring role.

She said she wanted a funnier and bolder take on the white trash family she created for “Mercy Peak” and that she was thinking about why mothers weren’t turning to a life of crime given that they generally had a low median income in NZ. Lang along with writer James Griffin set about creating the concept for this show with this in mind.

The story revolved around the West family following the imprisonment of the patriarch, Wolf West (Grant Bowler), which led to the decision of the matriarch, Cheryl (Robyn Malcom), to have her family live as law-abiding citizens. Starr had a dual role playing the twins – one was dim-witted and laidback, while the other one was a cunning lawyer. His performance earned him his first Best Actor Award in 2005 from Qantas Film & TV Awards.

It was followed by several more awards from various bodies, including the Air NZ Screen Awards, TV Guide Best on the Box, and Pan Asian Awards in Singapore from 2007 to 2010. He was also the Best Actor Finalist at the Seoul International Drama Awards in 2009.

The series had a successful run from 2005 to 2010, for six seasons with 107 episodes. Interestingly, every episode’s name was taken from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, because James Griffin said that like “Hamlet,” the show was about family. Its international broadcast included Australia, US, UK and Canada. Its prequel, “Westside,” is also a hit, with the sixth and final season approved in July 2019.

Antony has been cast in several lead roles in TV series and TV movie,s including the drama based on a true story from 1942, “Spies and Lies” (2010), which earned him the Best Performance by an Actor Award from the New Zealand Film and TV Awards; the police procedural drama series, “Rush” (2011), which he joined for its fourth and final season; and the Australian drama series, “Tricky Business” (2012).

“Banshee”

Starr was cast in the starring role of a master thief, who after his release from 15 years in prison, assumed the identity of the sheriff, Lucas Hood, in the small Amish town of Banshee. In its first season, “Banshee” received generally positive reviews and achieved Cinemax’s highest ratings for an original series at that time. It ran for four seasons (2013-2016) with 38 episodes.

One of its executive producers, Allan Ball, was the creator of the hit HBO series, “Six Feet Under” and “True Blood.”

Antony split his lip open in a fight choreography that went wrong during the first day of shooting for “Banshee.” He had to continue filming for six hours before receiving treatment at the hospital. It was said that he also sustained torn hamstrings and a busted elbow by the end of the filming. Post-production for the first episode took a long time, as they had to digitally remove the injury from scenes that were filmed after the incident, but were set before the fight scene.

“The Boys”

In 2018, it was announced that Starr was cast to play the superhero, Homelander, in the action-drama series “The Boys.”

This series from Amazon Prime Video was based on the comic book series of the same name, and was developed by Eric Kripke, who’s also one of the executive producers. Kripke was also the creator and executive producer of The WB/The CW hit urban fantasy series, “Supernatural.”

The story is set in a world where superheroes are known by the public, and owned by a corporation that manages them and sells their services. Starr’s character is that of a superhero whose public persona is good, but who cares very little about other people, and is actually evil.

Its first season of eight episodes was aired from July 2019, and was received well by critics and viewers. According to Amazon, it surpassed their expectations and became one of their most watched original series.

Nielsen reported that it had eight million viewers on the first 10 days of its release. Even before the series premiered, Amazon announced that it was renewed for a second season.

Movies

Antony has starred in more than a handful of movies, including “In My Father’s Den,” which won the Fipresci Prize at the 2004 Toronto International Film Festival, and became the 7th highest‑grossing film in NZ for that year. He was featured in the Anthony Hopkins-starring “The World’s Fastest Indian,” released in 2005 to positive reviews, and which became New Zealand’s third highest‑grossing local film of all time. Unfortunately, he didn’t have speaking parts with the Academy Award‑winner Hopkins.

His first starring role was in the drama “After the Waterfall” (2010), which received several nominations including the Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film for Starr at the 2011 Aotearoa Film and TV Awards (AFTA).

In 2012, he was cast in the role of Jeremy King in the mystery-drama, “Wish You Were Here,” and his performance earned him the Best Supporting Actor Award at the 2nd AACTA Awards (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts), and at the 2013 FCCA Awards (Film Critics Circle of Australia).

This play was written by Patrick Marber, and premiered at the Royal National Theatre in London in 1997, and Broadway (1999). Its film adaptation was in 2004 starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, and Clive Owen, who played the role of Dan both in the film and in the original stage production.

Other plays he appeared in include “Sex with Strangers” (2004) and “Bare” (2015).

She dated Jerry Fisher in the ‘80s, when he was also her manager; Joey was arrested for assaulting Jerry on 30 August 1986, as she used a steak knife to stab him in the hand, and was also charged with misdemeanor drug possession, as the police found less than a gram of cocaine in her purse.
