The younger brother of actor Murray Head, Anthony Stewart Head enjoyed a successful acting career in his native England before coming to the attention of American audiences as the intriguing romantic lead in a series of Taster's Choice coffee commercials, each tracing the budding romance between two neighbors who share a love for the same brew. The handsome actor got his first show business break playing Jesus in a West End production of "Godspell" and went on to play in a number of theater productions, including "The Rocky Horror Show" and Peter Shaffer's "Yonadab" at the Royal National Theatre. Among his many British TV productions, Head starred in the series "Love in a Cold Climate," which aired in the USA on PBS in 1982. He was a regular cast member on Fox's short-lived sci-fi series "VR.5" (1995) and also acted in an episode of ABC's critically-acclaimed "NYPD Blue" and the Showtime movie "Royce" (1994), starring James Belushi. He upped his American profile considerably by landing the regular role of Rupert Giles, the school librarian who doubles as mentor to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (The WB, 1997-2001; UPN, 2001-03).
