Tony Nixon was born in the UK, growing up in rural Hertfordshire. As a child his two great passions were Drama and Horses. Years later, a string of horse related jobs led him to teaching actors to ride for film, and background riding for Film and TV. This reunited him to his love of acting. In 1988, Tony migrated to Australia where he settled into an Acting Career, working in Theatre, Film and Television, Corporate Videos, Voice Overs, Radio Plays, Mime, MC work and Site-specific Theatre. He is particularly known for his portrayal of Manuel, the ‘Faulty Towers’ waiter with his improvisation and physical comedy skills receiving outstanding reviews at the Edinburgh, Melbourne and Adelaide Comedy Festivals.
In recent years Tony has also turned his hand to film making, writing and producing Corporate Training Videos, Local TV commercials and Documentaries. His most recent major role being that of Rynelf in ‘The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.’
