Anthony DiMaria (born 14 May 1966) is an American actor, producer, and director. DiMaria has worked in motion pictures and television with established talent such as Woody Allen, David Milch, and Dick Wolf, and has acted in several New York stage plays.
Anthony DiMaria is also known for preserving the legacy of his uncle, Jay Sebring, a pioneering stylist who was killed in 1969 by the Manson Family during what is now known as the Tate murders. For decades, DiMaria has fought to keep the convicted murderers behind bars and ineligible for parole.
In 2019 Anthony DiMaria received a “Special Thanks” credit from director Quentin Tarantino for information and materials shared from Jay Sebring’s estate and used in the movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Jay Sebring documentary
In 2020 Anthony DiMaria released the feature documentary Jay Sebring….Cutting to the Truth, which presented a platform to correct and illuminate Jay Sebring’s life outside the Manson murder lens. Distributed in North America by Shout Studios, the documentary was a critical success and featured in-depth investigative interviews with Quincy Jones, Nancy Sinatra, Quentin Tarantino, Dennis Hopper, and others.
Manson parole hearings
Since 2004 Anthony DiMaria has represented his family and advocated for the LaBianca family in the numerous parole hearings for Manson family members Patricia Krenwinkel, Charles Watson, Leslie Van Houten, and Susan Atkins. DiMaria and his immediate family have continuously and unfailingly urged the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to deny any and all parole or release to the remaining Manson group. In one of Watson’s parole hearings Anthony DiMaria commented, “These are troubled waters for many of us in here today and I would be remiss if I didn’t state that I feel profound sorrow for all of us involved, and great sorrow for Mr. Watson.”
In 2016, DiMaria urged the California Board to consider parole for Patricia Krenwinkel “when her victims are paroled from their graves.”
