One of the most talented actors to come up in recent times. Even though he mostly played the role of a comedian he was extremely talented and could play any character convincingly. A great loss to Sinhala cinema and music.We shall surely miss him. May his soul rest in peace.

If you see Anton's house in Wallaw Watta, Ratmalana, you will be surprised. A sad fact that most tele drama actors are not rewarded for their work in Sri Lanka. RIP
