Head originally wanted a career in music, and so he attended London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, where he stayed until 1976. Like many actors, he started his career on stage.
His debut was as Jesus in "Godspell" in London's West End. He really got his fame from a series of commercials for "Gold Blend coffee". This was a career booster, but now he was labeled as "a smooth talking, romantic leading man".
After his commercial hit, he decided to try his luck in the USA. He moved to Los Angeles and struggled for some time, not being able to get any TV jobs, until he landed the role as Oliver Sampson in the science fiction series VR5. He also managed to land the role as Giles in the series Buffy The Vampire Slayer. In what free time he had from Buffy, Head was working on a Gothic musical. Anthony chose to become a recurring character in Buffy's sixth season, so that he could spend more time in England.
Head has appeared in many British television shows since then, such as the BBC's MI5 drama, Little Britain and Manchild.
