Anthony Carrigan - From Bad Guy to Supervillian

Who is Anthony Carrigan?

Anthony Carrigan is widely acknowledged as being one of the best actors around - after all, only a supremely talented performer could switch from his natural good guy character to supervillain serial killer so effectively. Known for his Emmy-winning portrayal of Chechen mobster NoHo Hank in HBO's Barry, Tyler Davies in The Forgotten, and Gotham's evil baddie Victor Zsasz, Carrigan has a career that's granted him many accolades, including two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and a Critics' Choice Television Award nomination.

However, despite his obvious talent, Carrigan is known more for his recognizable appearance. Diagnosed with the auto-immune disease Alopecia Universalis at the age of three, it was the source of immense insecurity for him as he went through his childhood and teen years. Initially, he could hide the smaller patches when he began to lose his hair, and as the loss continued, he resorted to using make-up, artificial eyebrows, and fake hair to appear normal. By the age of 30, he was completely bald but had learned to embrace his difference, turning it to his advantage in the roles he chose to play.
