Birthplace: London, England, UK

Anthony George Newley was born into a working-class family, his father being a shipping clerk. His parents separated and he grew up mostly in the care of his mother. Newley applied to the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London, but found that the tuition was too expensive. Despite this, directors at the school saw him audition and were impressed enough to offer him a job as an office boy, which included free tuition. It was here that television producer Geoffrey de Barkus noticed him and cast him in the title role for his children's show, "The Adventures of Dusty Bales." He then was offered the part of the Artful Dodger in "Oliver Twist." As an older actor, he portrayed Matthew Mugg in the film adaptation of "Doctor Dolittle," and appeared in supporting roles in "Sweet November" and "Jazz Boat." His primary success, however, came as a vocalist and songwriter, with several hits on the U.K. pop chart including the Grammy Award-winning "What Kind of Fool am I?." He wrote the musicals "Stop the World - I Want to Get Off,"
