Hello and welcome.
Rather than proclaim “acting came naturally” I would say I have walked a long road, spent many tears, dreamed endlessly and laughed a lot in my evolution of becoming an artist. In every part it is my goal to birth something from the depths of my soul to entertain you in some way. I act from my heart where pain, joy and the truth of my being well forth. My ambition is to be a vessel for truthful art and portray characters on an identifiably human level.
I would like to personally thank you for visiting.
- Anton Troy
Anton, the grandson of renowned stunt man and rodeo cowboy Bob Folkerson, spent his childhood in backstage dressing rooms beside his single mother, a professional mime and children’s entertainer. From an early age, he struggled with being fatherless but loved listening to his grandmother tell stories about his grandfather. She would talk about his work in movies such as Ben Hur, his escapades on the TV series “Gunsmoke” and even tales of him working as Jimmy Cagney’s stunt double.
As a result, Anton turned to acting. It became a way to deal with his feelings and gain the strength to reinvent himself. Known for his quiet intensity and complex presence, Anton exudes an old soul charm which has lead to his being cast, on numerous occasions, as highly shaded characters.
A hot up and comer, Anton is known for his work on prolific writer Adam Rifkin’s scripted Showtime series “Reality Show” and as a lead in the critically-acclaimed horror anthology film Chillerama by directors Adam Rifkin, Tim Sullivan, Adam Green and Joe Lynch. In addition to his success on screen, Anton has found a new passion as a producer adding to his credit a feature film and some acclaimed shorts. He is currently working on a few other projects soon to be announced.
Anton took on his latest project, Cat on A Hot Tin Roof, to expand his breadth of characters as an actor and to follow in the footsteps of the greatest entertainers in Hollywood.
The reviews and response to his portrayal of the character Brick were overwhelming. His gritty, tortured and emotional interpretation of the role has only served to elevate his credibility as an accomplished performer, solidifying that he is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.
