Robert's journey to the best actor that ever graced the screen started out as a milkman, who had only one objective, to make it big as a singer. Initially, he started working as a nightclub singer, before hitting it off as an actor.
He moved to LA in 1958 after which the Warner Bros. Pictures signed him up. Robert went on to work in multiple TV series and movies for the company.
Prior to making it big in the series Hawaiian Eye as Tom Lopaka, he recorded several albums.
His all time best role came in 1960s, when he was cast as the lead in the CBS's crime series, 'The Wild Wild West.' In the acclaimed TV series, he played the lead role of James T. West, a Secret Service Agent.
What's more interesting is that the action packed film has had a lot of stunts and Robert, in a 2006 interview, mentioned he did all of his own stunts.
In addition to being an exceptional actor, he never forgot to give back to his community. In his lifetime, he was involved in several organizations including Wounder Warriors Project, Paralyzed Veterans of America, to name a few.
