Anthony Higgins

Anthony Higgins (born 9 May 1947) is an English actor. Higgins started to play in school theatre in England. After graduation, he studied at the school of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre Company. In 1967 he became a professional stage actor. He received positive reviews for his Romeo in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet at the Birmingham Repertory. He also worked onstage at the Coventry Theatre and the Chichester Festival in England. One of his first television appearances was a pivotal role in a 1968 episode of the TV series Journey to the Unknown with Janice Rule. Another television appearance was in The Strange Report (1969), with Anthony Quayle. Higgins' first successes in cinema were: A Walk with Love and Death by John Huston with Angelica Huston (1969), Something for Everyone (1970) with Michael York and Angela Lansbury, Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970), with Christopher Lee, and a cult movie Vampire Circus (1972), which was banned in Britain for a time for its hint of bestiality. In all movies and TV films of his early career, until 1975, Higgins was credited as Anthony Corlan, due to a union conflict of his name with another actor with a similar name.
