Robson Green was born in Hexham. Although best known as a TV actor, he's no stranger to singing. At the age of nine, he sang the lead role in Dudley primary school's production of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Six years later, he played Frederick in The Pirates of Penzance, staged by Seaton Burn High School Drama Society. In 1995, his recording of Unchained Melody with Jerome Flynn spent seven weeks at the top of the charts.
