Anthony Geary grew up in Coalville, Utah — which actually had no coal, just one diamond in the rough and around 799 other people. Although his family's business was construction, it was the arts that fueled Geary. By the age of 6, "I was writing stories and reading and building cabins on the hillside and running across the mountains with cheesecloth tied around my head," Geary recalled. Eventually, all that running around and natural talent landed him a Presidential Award scholarship in theater to the University of Utah. It didn't take long for the dynamic performer to be "discovered" at a university production.
