Life and career
Marco arrived in Llanview as a low-life pimp and pornographer who was only supposed to last for 8 days, but Anthony's offbeat look as well as his impassioned performances and electric chemistry with co-star Judith Light (Karen Wolek) made him such a fan favorite that only a few months after producers killed off Marco in 1978 they revealed the real victim was Marco's heretofore unknown brother, Mario Corelli. Anthony was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for the role in 1982, and won for Marco on General Hospital in 1993.
During his absences from daytime, Anthony had many guest-starring roles on television and a recurring role as kind-hearted Father Pete Terranova on Wiseguy from 1988-89. Anthony also directed an independent film, Twisted, and episodes of All My Children.
He continued to appear sporadically in primetime; in early 2003 he played a bit part on As the World Turns; when asked why he had not returned to daytime sooner, he said "no one asked me."
Anthony was married to his One Life to Live co-star Brynn Thayer from 1981-83.
Anthony killed himself on May 28, 2004 at age 52 in Butler, NJ.
