Anthony tries very hard to be supportive of his wife, for whom it took several rounds of IVF to get pregnant; like her, he already adores their unborn baby, Esther. Anthony is heartbroken when his wife decides that if it’s a choice between herself and the baby, she wants to save their baby – and she makes Anthony promise he’ll uphold her wishes.
Other roles to watch for include ‘Ryan’ on ‘Creepshow’ (Amazon/Shudder) and Curtis’ first lead on a TV Anthology show. Ryan is a groom-to-be, who marries into a surprisingly wealthy family that unbeknownst to him, harbors a very dangerous – generational secret.
