Robert Gray is a man with an engaging personality. He is intelligent, charming and witty.
After appearing on ‘The Hotel Inspector’, Robert’s popularity led to subsequent appearances on shows such as BBC’s ‘Cash in the Attic’ and ‘Bargain Hunt’. He would be an invaluable asset to any production.
As well as many TV appearances, Robert also has a wealth of stage and acting experience.
Robert was born in Malta in 1956, the son of the late Surgeon Commander Peter Gray RN and well known Egyptologist, and Ann Gray nee Churchill. He was educated at Seaford College, Petworth. After leaving school, Robert trained at the Guildford School of Acting.
Robert started as a ‘jobbing actor’ at the age of seventeen. His first job lead to five years in repertory theatre, acting in a different play every three weeks.
He spent a year in the West End performing in Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder at the Vicarage’ and he played the lead in a royal gala performance before HRH the Prince of Wales to launch the Princes Trust.
Property development has been a regular interest in Robert’s life. Robert designed and converted the large building in the Kings Road from which he then traded into a shop and luxury flat. He has turned around neglected properties including a mews house in Islington and a 1960s bungalow in Cornwall.
The latter had been metamorphosised into a funky house with a minstrel’s gallery which never fails to amaze his guests and where he now has his second home.
After a lull in his acting career, Robert has resumed performing. He was seen in the ‘altogether’ which he toured the country in stage version of ‘The Full Monty’ and played the Colonel in ‘Journey’s End’ in Hampstead. He has also appeared in several television advertisements and has been seen in Shakespeare in Greenwich Park near to where he now lives.
