As of mid-2020, Anthony Simcoe’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, earned through a successful career as an actor in the profession since 1997.

Although best known for his work early in his career, he regularly appeared in TV shows and movies until the 2010s.

Youth, education and early career

Anthony grew up in Sydney and from a young age aspired to be a professional actor. After graduating from high school, he pursued his interests by enrolling at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Sydney. The university is considered the top performing arts institution in the country, operating since the 1950s, and one of the best acting schools in the world. The focus is more on hands-on experience, with students allowed to work on live productions.

After graduating with a degree in drama, he then continued his education, earning a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) in drama, with a major in acting training, with plans to pursue a career as a trainer in case his acting career wouldn’t pan out. In 1997, he landed his first professional role in the film “The Castle”, which immediately helped him gain attention. The film was highly successful and widely acclaimed in the country and in New Zealand, but due to a lack of international distribution it did not fully realize its potential.

Rise to Glory – Farscape

In 1999, Simcoe rose to international fame when he was cast in the television series “Farscape”.

The show, which airs on Nine Network and the Sci-Fi Channel, follows the lives of a diverse set of characters who have joined an organization called The Peacekeepers. It’s a way for them to evade corrupt authorities, and the team then becomes part of a large ship traveling across the universe. The main character is a modern-day astronaut who encounters the Peacekeepers after accidentally walking through a wormhole. The show builds its story with the astronaut trying to find his way home, while helping the Peacekeepers.

On the show, he played the impressive but moody Luxan warrior Ka D’Argo – he joined the Peacekeepers after being wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife. In the show, he is seen wielding a large broadsword that can transform into a rifle. The show was supposed to run for five seasons to wrap up its story, but it was abruptly canceled during its fourth season. This caused a stir among many fans as it meant it ended on a cliffhanger.

Continuation of the acting work and conclusion of Farscape

Subsequently, Anthony made an appearance in the “Marking Time” miniseries, in which he played Scott Seaton, and told the story of the refugee experience in Australia, and one man’s discovery of their struggles.

It was the first mainstream project to properly address refugee politics in Australia. Subsequently, he made an appearance in the comedy film “Syntax Error”, in which he worked alongside Sacha Horler.

The following year, a sequel and conclusion to “Farscape” was announced called “Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars”. The miniseries continues from the fourth season, tying together most of the storylines featured in the series. Many of his fans followed the conclusion and even expected a sequel, but it didn’t have the same draw as expected. Nevertheless, the show had very high viewership during its first few nights, but never really improved.

Following its ending, the producers hoped to make it into a film adaptation, but due to numerous issues, it was never pursued. All of its seasons as well as the mini-series are available on online platforms around the world.

recent projects

After making an appearance in “The Alice”, Simcoe was then cast in a supporting role in the 2008 film “Nim’s Island”.

The author suffers from agoraphobia – a fear of open spaces and crowded places – and attempts to overcome this phobia to meet the girl.

Anthony also made appearances in ‘Rogue Nation’ and ‘Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities’. During the 2010s, he took noticeably fewer acting projects; his last film appearance was in 2014’s ‘The Inbetweeners 2’, a sequel to 2011’s ‘The Inbetweeners’. The show is based on the E4 sitcom of the same name, and follows the story of a group of friends who meet while on vacation in Australia, and should be the end of all the events that happened in the series. and the first movie. The show was very successful at the box office, although it had mixed reviews. In recent years he has focused more on freelance work as a corporate trainer.

Private life

We do not know if Anthony is married, because he does not talk much about his love affairs. He is known to have two children although he doesn’t talk much about their mother either – it’s unclear if they’re a couple or split up. In his spare time, he enjoys playing music and plays for the band Signal Room. He was also part of Number 96 and Giant Killers. Even though “Farscape” was completed a long time ago, many fans of the show still keep in touch, and he often looks back on his time on the show with fond memories.
