Anthony agrees that Iranian representation is very rare in Hollywood. He added that he had never gone out for a role that was Iranian. He added, “It’s always, you know, “looking for Middle Eastern or Hispanic or Caucasian,” whatever I can fit in because I do look ambiguous. I can look like other people, but I’ve never, ever played a role that was authentically representing my heritage. I remember getting the call that they wanted me to audition, and I was just so thrilled and excited because you’re right, I’ve never seen an actor playing [an] Iranian.”
Because of his ambiguous appearance, the actor has explained that he landed parts for characters of Indian, Pakistani, Arab, and Latinx characters.

Anthony soon secured a significant guest star role on ‘Law & Order: SVU.’ He has worked on a variety of other projects, such as ABC’s “Schooled,” CBS’ “NCIS,” CBS’ “Bad Teacher,” and ABC Family’s “Twisted.”
Anthony played Rahim, an outgoing and humorous LGBTQ+ student, in “Love, Victor,” which picks up after the events of Nick Robinson’s popular hit film “Love, Simon.” He has portrayed characters in shows like “Generation,” “Alexa & Katie,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” “The Rookie,” “Major Crimes,” and “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” in the past on networks like HBO, ABC, Netflix, TNT, CBS, Nickelodeon, Hulu, and more.
