Rob was the funniest of men too, and those of us who had the privilege of working with him will always remember such occasions with immense happiness.
Rob had a beautiful, mellifluous voice, tremendous stage presence and the ability to capture the essence of any character he played. He also found time to coach at the NOS where his experience, expertise and sound advice were of enormous value to the trainees.
We send our heartfelt condolences to Philippa, Tom and William and, like countless others, I can only be grateful that Rob was part of our lives - he would be amazed at how many people adored him and how much we shall all miss him.
We also send our deepest sympathy to the family of Jessica Christie-Sturges.
Kathryn Harries, Director.
