A graduate of University of Waterloo Theatre program, Anthony Lemke’s career took off with a lead role in the sci-fi hit mini-series “Robocop” as James Murphy, the son of Robocop. Shortly thereafter he landed the role of the swashbuckling Captain Grisham on the comic-action series “Queen of Swords,” shot in southern Spain. After a number of guest star appearances on Sci-Fi fantasy series and leading roles in the cable feature “Haven’t We Met Before” opposite Nicollette Sheridan, and the feature film “The Pedestrian,” Lemke moved to Montreal, Quebec where he enrolled in the renowned joint Common and Civil Law program at McGill University Faculty of Law, graduating with Great Distinction in 2007.
Lemke is no stranger to the small screen, and has had recurring roles on several programs in both the United States and Canada. In 2009, Lemke portrayed Clive Edmonston in "The Last Templar" for NBC, opposite Mira Sorvino, and was a series regular in "The Listener" for CTV and NBC. He went on to play a series regular in the French CBC series "Sophie Paquin,” and portrayed roles in the Sci-Fi miniseries "The Phantom" and the feature film "Cutting Edge: Fire and Ice."
Lemke’s recent screen credits include a guest starring turn in CBC’s hit family drama “Heartland,” and a starring role opposite Lea Thompson in “A Life Interrupted,” the inspirational story of a rape survivor’s journey to reclaim her life and put thousands of rapists behind bars. Prior to that, he played the affable Coach Brock on the tennis dramatic comedy “15/Love” and Charles, the lecherous photographer, on the CBC comedy “Rumours.” His other television work includes lead roles in the cable features “Wide Awake,” opposite Missy Peregrym, “Legacy of Fear” opposite Terri Polo and “Proof of Lies,” where he played Amanda Detmer’s scheming husband, Chuck.
Lemke wrote and produced his first short film, “One Last Dance,” starring Caroline Dhavernas, in 2009. He currently resides in Montreal with his wife and daughter, where he has formed a partnership with writer/lawyer Robert Israel to develop and produce film and television projects.
