ABOUT THIS ACTOR

Anthony Michael Hall (American) is almost unrecognisable from his days as the designated geek in teen flicks such as "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club", when he was one of the group of out-of-control actors known as The Brat Pack. Now in his thirties and sober, Anthony is forging ahead in a career that is finally going from strength to strength.

Like many of his fellow Brat Packers, Anthony began drinking in his early teens. By age 18, alcohol had taken over his life. He entered rehab and became fully sober by 1990. This burden and his eventual conquering of it, has matured him to the point where he carries a depth greater than his years. This is what makes him beautiful.

In Steven King's The Dead Zone, Anthony plays the role of a man who wakes from a coma to discover that his life has completely changed forever. His fiance has married someone else, he is unemployed and he can now access psychic abilities, through his brain's dead zone.

This could have come over as another shallow Hollywood grab for the current interest in the supernatural, but Anthony's sensitive portrayal of a man who essentially has to relearn who he is and how he fits into the world, makes it compelling viewing.

WHAT MAKES HIM BEAUTIFUL?

As an actor: His depth, his vulnerability, his readiness to use his experience on screen.

As a person: His determination, his ambition.
