Tony rose to fame in the BBC television series This Life. Since then, the Scots star has appeared in a number of major film and television roles.
Some of his roles have included Rodney Skinner (The Invisible Man), an original character in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. To portray the Invisible Man, he donned a special suit that turned him into a walking bluescreen (according to his commentary on the DVD, he looked like a "smurf on acid"). Curran also played vampire roles in Guillermo del Toro's Blade II and Underworld: Evolution.
Curran is active in participating in marathons to raise money for charity. He is a frequent and popular participant in the annual Dressed To Kilt event in New York City, run by the organisation Friends of Scotland in celebration of Tartan Week. He is also a keen fan of Celtic Football Club.
