When quizzed about his experiences studying at The Actors Workshop, Robert recalled the excitment of losing his inhibitions as he stepped onto the school’s film set on day one, camera’s rolling, already running through basic exercises with the other classmates, now lifelong friends. He says the lessons he learnt were life changing and initiated his growth as an actor, businessman and person.
His Advanced Diploma theatre showcase was attended by Grin and Tonic Theatre Company founder Bryan Nason. Bryan was impressed enough to track Rob down through the school and offer him full-time paid work as a touring actor. Robert’s relationship with the troupe continued with screen & stage performances alongside the late great Bille Brown, Jack Thompson, Eugene Gilfedder, Margi Brown-Ash, Ian Stenlake, Jason Klarwein, Andy Blackman and others.
Robert has also performed twin-brothers on an MTV feature, a guest star role on Sea Patrol, a guest star-role on an ABC/JTV segment, a speaking role on a german TV series, several print and television commercial feature roles.
