Maxim: Banshee Actor Antony Starr Talks Epic Fist Fights & Nude Scenes

The screencaps from the Banshee finale will be added shortly, but in the meantime here is a Maxim article from last week where Antony answers a few questions!

“Banshee” Actor Antony Starr Talks Epic Fist Fights & Nude Scenes
By: Nick Leftley, Maxim, 12th March 2014

With Season 2 ending tomorrow night on Cinemax, the New Zealand actor answers the same 10 questions we always ask everyone!

For people who haven’t got around to seeing it yet, how would you describe the show Banshee?
Banshee is the story of a man who gets out of prison, tracks down his long-lost love, and tries to reclaim what was stolen from him years earlier by assuming the identity of a sheriff. I guess you could say it’s an explosive action drama – sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride!

The show has some pretty epic fight scenes. How much of the stunt work do you do yourself?
We do a lot of the stunt work ourselves, because with the nature of the show, we try and make it as gritty as possible and give the directors as many options as they can in the cutting room. So we do a lot of it ourselves, which means that we get beaten up quite a lot and get extremely well used by the end of the season… It’s really quite an enjoyable process, ironically, because it’s really something I’ve never done before. I’ve never done any stunts. It was great to join a team that’s really focused on trying to bring some fresh and interesting action sequences to the small screen.

Have any of your stunts ever gone wrong?
You always get little bumps and nicks and bruises, and they’re not massively fun. I think the only thing that has really gone wrong is on day one of the entire shoot – day one, season one – one of the other actors threw his head up mid-fight scene, which sort of screwed the choreography up. My lip exploded and I had to get six stitches, but I had to keep filming for six hours before we could get me to the hospital!

Access Hollywood: Antony Starr on Developing Lucas Hood

Access Hollywood have a new interview with Antony, where he discusses the character of Lucas Hood and how he’s happy to avoid the spotlight.

Banshee: Antony Starr on Developing Lucas Hood
by Jolie Lash, Access Hollywood, 14th March 2014

Lucas Hood can’t walk through the town of “Banshee” without attracting attention, but actor Antony Starr, who plays the tough anti-hero, is quite happy to avoid the spotlight.

“It’s relatively tame,” he told Access Hollywood about getting recognized for his stateside role. “Which, to be honest, I’m a really private person, so it kind of works for me. The more time I have without that happening, I’m OK with that. It’s one of those things, you know… I do value my privacy and that’s gonna be something that’s interesting if and when the show starts becoming a bit more mainstream.”

“Banshee” will conclude its Season 2 run Friday night at 10 PM ET/PT on Cinemax, and Antony’s character heads into it with a lot (Chayton, Proctor, Brock and Gordon, Rabbit) of enemies.

“This is where this character thrives,” Antony said of Lucas. “He’s not the kind of guy that’s gonna settle down in suburbia and look at the library in content. He needs to have that adrenalized lifestyle to really feel that he’s alive in a lot of ways.

“When we first started, we were very careful to keep him pretty contained and have a real ‘less is more’ philosophy so we didn’t really know what was going on with the character. And… slowly, as the series progressed [in] Season 1, the character really shifted and then in Season 2, we’re trying to add a lot more humor, deliberately, to put it in there, to lighten things up a little bit and just show that he’s adapting and finding it easier to socialize in the outside world and letting go of that really… sort of emancipating himself from the inside,” Antony continued. “And that will continue into Season 3. I’ve heard the plans already and there’s an extension of that growth and that development into Season 3, so it’s going to be really exciting.”

Men’s Fitness: Antony Starr Interview – The Badass from Banshee

Men’s Fitness has a brand new interview with Antony about Banshee and Fanshee’s!

A 20-Minute Session with the Badass from Banshee
By Mike Simone, Men’s Fitness, 12th March 2014

Banshee is one of those shows you go on a complete bender watching. Hell, I did. It’s from the creators of True Blood, starring New Zealand native Antony Starr as Lucas Hood, an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, PA, where he continues his criminal activities, even as he is hunted by the shadowy gangster he betrayed years earlier.

Each and every episode not only brings some of the craziest and twisted physical scenes but also a culmination of story lines from each of its characters. You’ve got the townies, thugs, Ukrainian gangsters, and political powerhouses all squeezed into a little-known rural town all battling for control. And, of course, Antony Starr as Hood.

If you haven’t been watching this Cinemax edge-of-your-seat thriller, here’s a quick recap of what you’ve been missing.

Season 1 brings us into the world of the ex-con Lucas Hood (Antony Starr). Hood is released from prison after 15 years, and while looking for the love of his life, his former accomplice and love Carrie/Anna (played by Ivana Milicevic), through a series of action-packed events he ends up as the new sheriff in the quirky small town of Banshee. In the close of Season 1, our ex-con and master thief, but presumed ‘hero’, finds himself in an all-out battle for his life when his past catches up with him.
