Anthony Perkins (April 4, 1932 – September 12, 1992) was an Academy Award-nominated, Golden Globe-winning American stage and screen actor, perhaps best known for his role as Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and its three sequels.
Perkins' first movie was The Actress (1953). He received the Golden Globe Award for New Star Of The Year - Actor and an Academy Award nomination for his second film, Friendly Persuasion (1956). Following this, he released three pop albums in 1957 and 1958 on Epic and RCA as "Tony Perkins". His single "Moon-Light Swim" was a hit in the United States, peaking at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1957. In 1958 he showcased his musical talents in the Film Matchmaker. After other acclaimed performances both in film and on Broadway, he starred as Norman Bates in the 1960 film Psycho. The role and its many sequels affected the remainder of his career.
Following the success of Psycho, Perkins had a successful career in Europe. He created a portrayal of Joseph K. in Orson Welles' The Trial (1962), a cinematic adaptation of the novel by Franz Kafka. Upon returning to America, he took the role of a disturbed young murderer in Pretty Poison (1968). He also played Chaplain Tappman in Catch-22 (1970). Perkins also co-wrote, with composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim, the screenplay for the (1973) film The Last of Sheila, for which the writers received a 1974 Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Motion Picture Screenplay. He returned to the role of Norman Bates for the sequels, Psycho II, Psycho III (which he directed) and Psycho IV: The Beginning.
Among his Broadway credits are the Frank Loesser musical Greenwillow (1960) and Bernard Slade's 1979 play Romantic Comedy opposite Mia Farrow. Perkins's life was meticulously documented in the 1996 biography Anthony Perkins: Split Image written by Charles Winecoff.
