    (December 15, 1945- )
    Born in Sydney, Australia
    Portrayed Victor Cassadine on General Hospital and Tony DiMera on Days of Our Lives
    Appeared in the movies 'Altered States' (1980)) and 'The Book of Esther' (2012)
    His first name has a surplus of vowels.
    He pretended to come from a wealthy family. ('I guess in a way I started acting at a young age... because I felt I had to hide the fact we were so poor.')
    When he left Australia for New York City, he lied and told his parents it would only be for a month.
    In addition to Tony DiMera, he portrayed Tony's look-alike cousin Andre. (Identical cousins? What is this, The Patty Duke Show?)
    Between Tony and Andre, he's managed to get killed on 'Days' four times.
    He is fluent in English and Greek.
    He has an abiding interest in archaeology.
    TV Guide called his acting 'a skillful blend of diabolical rogue and valiant hero.'
    When Tony DiMera was first killed off (thanks to Penghlis falling out of favor with the head writer), during the death scene he deliberately (and without telling the producers) wore clothing and displayed mannerisms that were slightly off to suggest that it really was an impostor who died (1995).
    Seven years later, a new head writer brought Tony back and commented, 'Thaao cleverly passed us a ball. We're running with it.'
