Today on Too Opinionated we speak with actor Tony Ofori!
His first big break came when he was cast in the popular
American superhero television series Supergirl (The CW) as
Miles. Since then, Tony has appeared in several major film and television productions including The Boys (Amazon
Prime), Coroner (Netflix), American Gods (Starz), Song & Story: Amazing Grace (OWN Network), and A Royal Queens
Christmas. Tony’s recent theatrical productions include Actually (Obsidian Theatre), Copy That (Tarragon Theatre) and
Pipeline (Soulpepper Theatre). Branching out, Tony has also voiced animated shows, audiobooks and national events
which include the 2018 Winter Olympics, Let’s Go Luna and DeRo and My Life.
Coming up next, Tony will recur as Malcolm in the highly
anticipated third season of the hit children's mystery
television series Ghostwriter set to make its premiere on Apple TV+ on October 21st. Most recently, he was nominated
for the prestigious 2022 Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Outstanding Performance in a Leading Role for Soulpepper
Theatre Company’s production of American playwright Dominique Morisseau’s play, Pipeline. Other future projects
include playing Canada's very first Black Track and Field Olympian and legend John Armstrong Howard on the
upcoming season of the mystery drama series Murdoch Mysteries (CBC). He will also be back on stage and in rehearsal
for an adaptation of Ann-Marie MacDonald’s book Fall on Your Knees with Canadian Stage in November.
Understanding the importance of giving back, Tony currently sits
on the board for Black Scholar Dollars, a non-profit
organization whose mission is to serve Black post-secondary students in the Greater Toronto Area, eliminating
educational and economic injustice, one student at a time.
