American actor, best known for his role as Dr. Mark Greene on the TV series "ER," for which Anthony Edwards has won two Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series, a 1998 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Drama, and a People¹s Choice Award as Favorite Male Television Performer in a New Series. He has also received four Emmy Award nominations for Lead Actor in a Drama Series and three nominations as Best Actor by Viewers for Quality Television.

Edwards is the youngest of five kids, raised in Santa Barbara, California by an artist mom and architect dad. He was interested in acting as a kid and by age 16 was a pro of dozens of musicals and local plays. After high school he attended a summer workshop at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. He then studied at the University of Southern California for two years, during which time he won roles in such feature films as "Heart Like a Wheel" and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

He left college in 1982 to play in a TV series, "It Takes Two." Though he has made feature films, TV remains his strongest medium, with critical acclaim for his recurring roles in a variety of series. He started his own production company, Aviator Films, Spring/1999, which produced his starring film "Don’t Go Breaking My Heart." He has also tried his hand at directing, showing his range and capacity in the industry. By 2000, he was producing series and telefilms for five networks, as well as developing a slate of independent films.

Edwards is a board member of the Cure Autism Now Foundation (CAN). He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and three children. On 5/09/2002, he played in "ER" for the final time, leaving Noah Wyle on the sole original player in the drama. Edward's exit from the show was explained by the death of his character, Dr. Mark Greene, from a brain tumor. On the final episode, he is featured in a series of flashbacks.
