A tall, dark, and handsome British actor who parlayed his distinctive good looks into a memorable role as the womanizing Charles Frere in the television drama series Howard's Way, Tony Anholt also appeared on numerous stateside and British television programs in addition to numerous roles on the West End stage. Born in Singapore and subsequently moving to Australia during World War II, Anholt's family also lived briefly in South Africa before eventually settling in Britain. Following the death of his father during Japanese occupation, Anholt met his first wife while both were working as teachers. Though he had harbored a love for the stage, Anholt's previously untapped abilities as an actor lay dormant until he began training as an actor and appearing in numerous stage roles following his marriage. Soon a staple of numerous West End productions followed, when Anholt would appear on-stage from the late '60s to the early '90s in The Boys in the Band (his first West End appearance), Sleuth, and Death and the Maiden, among many others. Moving into television with a role in a 1965 BBC production of Alice (which remains one of the earliest Dennis Potter BBC productions to survive on tape), Anholt appeared on the small screen on both sides of the pond in such efforts as Coronation Street (1960), Space: 1999 (1975), Destination Moonbase Alpha (1976), and The Last Days of Pompeii (1984), before meeting his second wife on the set of Howard's Way. In addition to his work as an actor, Anholt was also prolific as an announcer for BBC World Service radio. In July 2002, Anholt died in London after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. He was 61.
