Anthony Howell - Biography
Born June 1971, grew up in the Lake District, England.
Studied for 4 years architecture at Manchester University.
'I did quite a lot of acting at university, and when it came to the crunch, there was that sort of feeling of 'do I really want to do this for the rest of my life?', and on the other hand what do I want to do? 'When you're 21 you think you can do anything, so I decided to try and do acting. I moved to London and found a part-time acting course to see whether (a) I could do it, and (b) enjoyed it. I certainly enjoyed it, but I'm still exploring whether I can do it or not - we'll see!'
After a one-year foundation course in acting he went to the Drama Centre full-time for three years.
