Robert Pike Daniel has crafted a screen career spanning more than 20 years. Born in Scotland and raised in South Africa, Robert studied acting at the Durban Academy of Speech & Drama and made his professional stage debut at the age of 10. He returned to Britain in 1975, graduating from the prestigious National Film & Television School while working as a journalist at the BBC. In 1987, he "crossed the pond", ending up in Los Angeles where, he says: "The moment I set foot in town, I felt completely at home." Nowadays, Robert often plays American characters, like his recurring roles in Will Ferrell's "The Spoils of Babylon" and the Russian TV mini-series, "Chuzhoe Litso", playing a CIA station chief. He's done the same in movies like "Sink Hole", playing a California Fire Chief opposite Eric Roberts' Sheriff as they struggle to save school kids whose bus drove into a sink hole. Robert works in many dialects, using a German voice for Einstein on Disney's "Kickin' It", and Aussie voices on "Touch", and as Rupert Murdoch on Fox's "Talkshow." Robert's background helped with his portrayal of Scots golfing legend, Old Tom Morris, in the ongoing Golf Now TV commercials. And it certainly helped with Angus Dagnabbit - "Scotland's Yosemite Sam" - a recurring character on Fox's animated "Mad Jack the Pirate" series (Robert got to play his bagpipes on the show!) Over the years, Robert voiced characters on many video games, including the hit "Star Wars" and "World of Warcraft" series. On stage, Robert played challenging characters like George in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and Henry in "A Lion in Winter."
