Robert is a Polish theatre actor with Modjeska Theatre in Legnica, one of Poland’s greatest theatres, renowned for its depth of acting talent. His experience includes almost 40 roles in professional theatre productions. Two years ago he received a phone call saying that as he looked like Vincent van Gogh, the first time anyone had ever mentioned this fact, he had to go and audition that same day for a lead role on an international feature film. Having spoken barely any English since leaving school Robert was bemused when he was immediately whisked into costume and make up, and had to read out Vincent’s letters in English. That was the start of a great journey of discovery into the life and works of Vincent van Gogh. Robert considers himself a lucky guy because he loves his job, and now he is loving Vincent too.
