  • Quotes

    • Anthony: (about The Cockroaches while on "Sounds")
      It would be that long. We've been playing every year and harbor in Australia.

    • Anthony: (the famous fan he's been most excited to meet) The most amazing star we met was Robert De Niro. He was really gentle and sat very intently watching us perform. At the same show was Jerry Seinfeld, who was such a down-to-earth guy. He said, 'I watch you guys all the time,' and I said, 'We watch you all the time!'

    • Anthony (how they choose children to appear on Wiggles shows): We have been filming videos for 15 years and so at first we used family. I am from a family of seven children with 20 grandchildren, so my brothers' and sisters' children have grown up on the videos. It's always best to use children who know each other and are comfortable in the TV environment. So it's largely been family and friends over the years!

    • Anthony (on working with the late Steve Irwin): Steve was such a fun guy to work with. We filmed Wiggly Safari up at Australia Zoo. He would wake up at about 3am and go surfing in Caloundra, and then come back to work at his zoo and start filming with us - he had so much energy! We filmed with his wife, Terri, and their daughter, Bindi, who were fantastic. He was always the same, full of life and so positive. We all miss him so much, but I know the wonderful conservation work he did will be continued by his family.

    • Anthony (on the friendship between The Wiggles & Steve Irwin): We were all mates. He was a big supporter of ours and we were a big supporter of his. When any of us had our children, he would send flowers and vice versa. I'm just a big admirer of him…and his courage. He did a lot and he stayed true to himself. I take my hat off to him.

    • Anthony (on the death of Steve Irwin): He was Mr. Enthusiasm; exactly like he was on TV. He was an honest, hard-working guy who loved his family loved wildlife, and he really was dedicated to bring love wildlife to children, to adults…to everybody.

    The Wiggle's show just wouldn't be the same without him. Anthony Field proudly takes the role of the blue wiggle. His bright blue eyes match his blue skivvy. He has such a positive attitude and is such a good guy. He's my favorite of the Wiggles. He always encourages children to eat healthy, especially his favorite, fruit salad! He has a brilliant, bright smile and great teeth. While many people view the Wiggles as gay they don't really look at the people beyond the colored skivvies. Anthony is one of four completely overlooked great guys. His silly TV personality in the popular children's show is easily overlooked. He is a great man who only wants to make children happy.moreless
