Robson Green Career

Growing up in Tyneside, Green was chosen to be the lead in a film made by Amber Films that narrated the contemporaneous social problems faced by working-class people in Thatcher's Britain. Each episode examined one aspect of living in a harsh and embittered environment. The soap opera gave Green his big break in film. It was quickly followed by offers of work. Green first made his name as an actor in the BBC series Casualty but, after three series, moved to national prominence as fusilier Dave Tucker in the drama series Soldier Soldier.

In 1995, one episode called for Green and co-star Jerome Flynn to sing "Unchained Melody". Subsequently, ITV was inundated by people wanting to buy the song and the pair were persuaded by Simon Cowell to release it as a single – a double A-side with "White Cliffs of Dover". It stayed at No. 1 for seven weeks in the UK Singles Chart, selling more than 1.8 million copies and making it the best-selling single of the year and winning the duo the Music Week Awards in 1996 for best single and best album. Subsequently, they had two further No. 1 singles and two No. 1 albums, all remakes of standards.

The song gave Green the opportunity to sign a long-term deal with ITV to star in several of the network's dramas, including Touching Evil, Grafters and Reckless. In 1996, he set up an independent production company, Coastal Productions, with business partner Sandra Jobling to give youngsters from the North East the opportunities he struggled for. The company has since produced or co-produced most of Green's television work, as well as local productions at the Theatre Royal in Newcastle upon Tyne. In 2002, Green starred as clinical psychologist Dr. Tony Hill in the crime drama Wire in the Blood.

Green's production company has brought at least four new dramas to the small screen in recent years, including the massive ratings hit Christmas Lights. The success of this one-off drama led to a series being commissioned under the name Northern Lights, which was followed by a sequel called City Lights. Coastal also produces drama series, including Hereafter starring Stephen Tompkinson and Dervla Kirwan.

In 1995, Green won the Smash Hits Poll Winner's Party award for Favourite TV Actor. In 1997, Green starred in the TV film, The Student Prince which is no relation to either the Romberg operetta or the 1954 MGM film.

In July 1998, Green received an honorary degree from the University of Northumbria and, in September 2006, he was voted by the UK general public at No. 35 in a poll of TV's greatest stars.

In 2000, Green starred with James Bolam, Susan Jameson and Jamie Bell in the ITV drama Close and True. In 2001, he starred in the six-part ITV drama Take Me.

In 2002, Green starred with Caroline Goodall in the TV movie Me and Mrs. Jones. In December 2002, he released his first solo album, Moment in Time, which was composed of cover versions (including the song "Me and Mrs. Jones"). However, unlike his releases with Jerome Flynn, the album was a commercial failure, peaking at No. 49 in the UK.

In 2003, Green starred in the ITV mini-series Unconditional Love and in the BBC television series Trust. In 2005, he starred in two series, Like Father Like Son, and Rocket Man in which he played a widower trying to build a rocket to send his dead wife's ashes into space.

Green presents his own series Extreme Fishing with Robson Green and the spin-off Robson's Extreme Fishing Challenge, where he travels over the world investigating and participating in the sport, coining fishing catchphrases such as "get in" and "we're in". During 2009, while promoting the second series on BBC Breakfast, Green claimed that 90% of all coarse fish caught by anglers die. This rapidly caused an angry response from coarse fishing anglers in the UK who believed this comment to be unsubstantiated and potentially damaging to the sport.

In December 2009, ITV presented the documentary Robson Green's Wild Swimming Adventure, a tour of swimming locales around the UK.

In 2010 Green had a major role in the television film Joe Maddison's War. Directed by Patrick Collerton, it presented a view of World War II through the eyes of shipyard workers and World War I veterans who served in the Home Guard during the Blitz.

In July 2010, Green began filming the seventh series of BBC drama Waterloo Road appearing from May 2011 to July 2011.

In 2011, Green starred in the third series of the BBC Three show Being Human in which he played a werewolf named McNair.

In 2013 and 2015, Green starred in the fourth and fifth series of the war-drama series Strike Back, as Lt Colonel Philippe Locke, a former SAS operative.

In October 2013, Green began presenting Tales from Northumberland with Robson Green on ITV, a factual series about his home county of Northumberland. A second series began airing in February 2015 and a third in February 2016.

Since 2014, he has portrayed Geordie Keating in the ITV drama series Grantchester, starring alongside James Norton and later Tom Brittney. A second series began in March 2016 and a third in April 2017.

In March 2016, during an appearance on The One Show, Green confirmed he would present a new series for ITV called Tales from the Coast with Robson Green, which began airing in January 2017. In April 2016, he presented a one-off documentary The Flying Scotsman with Robson Green. He also presented a one-off documentary Robson Crusoe: A Surprising Adventure and a six-part series called Robson Green's Coastal Lives, both for ITV.

In 2020, Green began recording Hadrian's Wall with Robson Green a 3-part documentary following him walking the 80 miles from Wallsend west to Bowness. The series was commissioned by Channel 5 and made by Firecracker Films.

It is being rumoured as of 2022 that Green alongside Mark Benton will be reuniting as Colin and Howie for another series of Northern Lights.


Robson Green helped The Crown's James Murray prepare for role by pretending to be The Queen, February 3, 2023
They're being hailed as ITV's answer to Mortimer and Whitehouse, but Robson Green admits filming on his new series Robson And Jim's Fly Fishing Adventure took a decidedly strange turn... involving the Queen and Prince Andrew. 'Jim Murray, with whom I make the show, got an email asking him to put himself on film for the role of Prince Andrew in The Crown - while we were fishing in the River Dee in Scotland,' Robson recalled. 'He got out of the river, shaved off his beard, got me to read the role of the Queen and we shot the scene.

CHRISTOPHER STEVENS reviews last night's TV: Killer show murdered by a bunch of non-entities, January 25, 2023
CHRISTOPHER STEVENS: Fluke or surefire formula? Claudia Winkleman's reality format The Traitors, the mind game set in a Scottish castle, was the runaway surprise hit of last year. The question is whether its sadistic, addictive effect on millions of viewers was an accident, the inadvertent result of its perfect cast of characters combined with Claudia's previously unsuspected streak of cruelty. The only way to answer that is to try it again. The Traitors U.S. (BBC3) does just that, in the same setting, with the same missions, even the same blacked-out limousines.

Robson Green reveals how crippling anxiety on set inspired his new series of bracing escapes, January 20, 2023
When Robson Green, 58, suffered a terrifying anxiety attack on the set of ITV crime drama Grantchester a couple of years ago, two things happened. In the short term it made him question his career, and he sought an escape through cold water swimming, fishing and hiking. In the longer term it was the catalyst for his new series, Robson Green's Weekend Escapes, which sees him travel the North-East of England, trying everything from paddleboarding to sketching in the company of famous friends who are also from the area.
