Browse biogs A-Z
Anthony Mathurin is a club chess player who came to widespread public attention when he became a contestant on BBC One's The Traitors series 2, broadcast in 2024.

He is a chess coach in the West Midlands area for Chess in Schools.

The notable quotes from his interview before taking part in The Traitors were:

'Like a game of chess, every piece on the board is expendable, the only thing that matters is the king, that's it.'

'I have watched the UK, US and Australian series, and there are different elements in different people that I think that were really good, but you can't actually take the same thing and use it this time because everyone's situations are completely different.'

'That's something I've discovered I'm actually pretty good at, being able to keep my emotions in check. I think that's something that's going to be really key.'

'I have a loose game plan, a very loose game plan. The key to the game plan is flexibility because things are going to be forever changing, every day is a brand-new day.'

He was one of the faithful and was banished in episode 6.
