Robert James-Collier is an English actor, who was born on the 23rd of September, 1976 and is currently 39 years of age. He was born in Salford part of Greater Manchester to father Nathan Collier and mother Eva, Born as the couple’s only child, he attended the local St Patrick's school and graduated in 1989. Then he attended the University of Hudders where he studied business. With one degree in hand, he again studied marketing at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology.
Till he completed his Bachelor’s degree, he had no idea or intention to become an actor and make a career out of acting. Although he had appeared on stage and had acted a couple of times in his school, he didn’t plan on becoming a professional actor. But an unexpected chain of events turned things around and he landed being an artist, and a successful one. Born and raised in England, he is a British by nationality. He was raised in a Christian family and belongs to white ethnicity.
He made his acting debut after he was passed from the audition of British TV series Down to Earth (2000). Although he didn’t have much experience in acting, but still he convinced the related people with his performance and got the part. Almost 6 years later, he returned into TV and this time was playing in another series New Street Law (2006). He also played in the 5th episode of Shameless (2004- 13), in its 3rd season, under the role of a stud named Rob Collier. Again in 2006, he was invited to join the show Coronation Street, which was owned by one of his buddies. But a couple of years later, he left the show and later in an interview said “I wasn’t prepared for my part. It was a little more demanding you know, something that made me feel uncomfortable”.
After he quit the show, his part was taken by actor Tony Gordon, with whom Robert had worked for some time. After he quit the show, he didn’t appear on TV for some time until he was seen as a under butler in the TV show Downton Abbey. A regular member of the crew, he has been with the show since its beginning in 2010 and also worked for some time in the TV drama Calendar Girls. Apart from playing in TV roles, he also practiced modeling and was the face for “Argos” company in their Autumn/Winter 2007 and Spring/Summer 2008 collection. In 2007, he was awarded with the title of Sexiest British Male and also won the Best New Comer title. He also won the British Soap Awards in the year 2008, and a year later, he was awarded with the title of British Soap Awards in 2009.
With his oncreen romance with actress Jamie Forster in Downton Abbey, many regarded them to have been dating in real life. But the actors came out openly and dropped all speculations about their relationship, falsely. Not much information is found regarding his affairs and personal life, as he doesn't discuss much about his life in the media.
