However, at the end of the day, it all boils down to one thing—or person—for the actor, His mother.
“It actually made me into the man I am today,” the eighteen-year-old Elias Anton told TV WEEK. “I learned so much from that experience. And it made me more mature, more humble and more organized.”
Industry experts and Barracuda’s viewers have praised the actor for his performance as Danny Kelly, the half-Greek and half-Irish swimmer from a working class background who’s given a sporting scholarship to a school for the privileged.
Barracuda is based on Charles Tsiolkas’ novel of the same name.
Despite all the praise and the acting jobs coming his way, Elias Anton is just a son who wants to make his mother beam with pride.
