Anthony Dalton II shares more about his goals, his transition to a
new city, and how he is able to bring each character he plays to life.
Indianapolis native, Anthony Dalton II is a man that believes all things are possible with passion and heart. Upon finishing college, Dalton packed up his bags and hit the road for a new life in Atlanta, Georgia in order to pursue his acting career. As an actor on the big screen, we’ve witnessed the ambitious man star in remarkable projects such as Tyler Perry’s The Paynes, and BounceTV’s hit series, Saints & Sinners but the actor is here to let us know that he’s just getting started.
Tell us about yourself. What made you want to get into the entertainment industry?
Well, I was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. My grandparents, my mother, and my other sister raised me. Actually, I didn’t think I was going to become an actor. Growing up in the city, I thought sports was going to be my ticket to get out of the hood, but I ended up taking a drama class in high school. I was the class clown so I really didn’t take it seriously. I went on to college to play ball but I took a theater class and ended up in the play, Fences by August Wilson. Once opening night happened, I was hooked and knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
