Antony Ferguson is a native of London, England. Upon leaving Drama school, he worked extensively in English repertory theatres; most notably playing the lead in Edward II, Don Juan, and Lord Byron in a production of Camino Real for Alan Ayckbourn’s theatre company. He has twice appeared on London’s West End, winning the award for best actor as Jimmy Porter in (an award winning production of) Look Back In Anger, and playing the lead in The Thwarting of Baron Bolligrew, by Robert Bolt. Upon moving to New York City, he worked regularly Off Broadway, in regional theatre and on national tours. He has a wide experience in performing Shakespeare, Chekov, Shaw etc., and has won several awards for his work.
Antony got involved in audiobook narration several years ago, as an extension to his regular voice over work, and has recorded over 160 books. He loves all genre of audiobooks, but has a special love of recording Romantic Fiction. The characters, the situations, and the passion are just so much fun to perform! He is an Audiofile Earphone Award winner.
5 things I love about being a narrator
1 I get to act every day.
Most actors are out of work more than they are in work, but I get to play different characters and tell different stories every day.
2 I love that I work from home.
It is wonderful to be able to work from my home studio and set my own schedule.
3 I learn a great deal
I learn several new things with every book I record. Naturally, more with non fiction, but it is great to see things through someone else’s eyes.
4 I love to entertain people.
It feels wonderful, knowing that by using my imagination when creating characters, that people are at home enjoying and being entertained by my work.
I love the fact that no two books are the same and I get to record constantly changing projects.
Here are a few samples of Antony’s work.
