Anthony Lewis (born 31 March 1983) is an English actor.
Lewis began acting at just nine years old with early roles in many popular television shows, including Heartbeat, A Touch Of Frost and Cracker as well as a role alongside Brenda Blethyn and Julie Walters in the feature film Girls' Night written by Kay Mellor. Regular roles in Children's Ward (as Scott Morris for three series) and Adam's Family Tree (as Adam for 2 series), as well as the lead in British Comedy Award-winning show My Dad's a Boring Nerd marked Lewis out as a young actor of note. This resulted in a full-time role on popular soap Emmerdale, where Lewis played Marc Reynolds for four years. After leaving the show, Lewis would further his career with a challenging role in Broken Voices at the Tristan Bates Theatre in London's West End. Further television roles followed in Dalziel and Pascoe and Respectable before taking another feature film role as Steve in the multi-award-winning film Boy A. This was immediately followed by a lead in popular sci-fi show Torchwood as the young World War I soldier Tommy Brockless, who is charged with saving the Universe. Lewis also featured in the film version of A Passionate Woman and football comedy Everything But The Ball. In his spare time, he has performed for several years in the band 'The Good Die Young', regularly performing across the country.
Lewis recently appeared on stage at Hull Truck Theatre as Mark in A Passionate Woman alongside Kay Mellor, Stuart Manning and Andrew Dunn. The show toured in 2011 as a co-production between The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich and Oldham Coliseum.
