Whatever happened to Anthony Murphy?


I was wondering what happened to him, so I did a little googling and found this really nice article, Whatever happened to Tom Brown?, http://www.copyunlimited.com/_content/tb.htm. Here's the website for his art gallery, http://www.murphygallery.com/. It would be nice to get a biography posted on his personal page, though I don't know anything about him so that anything I'd write would just be plagiarized from that article. He seems to have had some personal and family problems and now he's doing fantastic!

He did win an Emmy, though, which really should be noted here on the miniseries page and also on his personal page. I'll have to try to figure out how to contact the IMDb admins on that issue, and maybe someone else can too?

I've got a copy on order through an eBay seller (at some savings over the standard price that they're charging at Borders), and I can't wait to see it. I saw some review online somewhere criticizing the DVD for its "production quality," but it almost seems like that's going to be half the charm, the slightly gritty early-70s TV.

I haven't seen this since it was shown on Masterpiece Theater, and I was probably a little too close to my own boarding school days to feel as affectionately toward it as I do in my memory now. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those "all nighters" where I watch it straight-on through.

Thank you very much for posting the links. It's great to know that Anthony Murphy is alive and well and doing something he loves to do these days. He is obviously a very talented painter, and apparently leading a fulfilling life. I'll always be a fan of his performance in Tom Brown's Schooldays. He deserved the Emmy and should be very proud of that chapter in his life. He strikes me as kind of a private person, but I bet he's getting some well-deserved fan mail now that the BBC production is out on DVD. I hope he looks back at the whole experience with a smile...

I just checked that link to the article and got a 404 page, but here's a link to it on another site, http://www.kevinwalsh.co.uk/tb.htm. The link to murphygallery.com is still good.
