Robert Daws

Robert Daws plays Dr Thomas Choake in the new BBC adaptation of Poldark

Robert is no stranger to taking on the role of doctor having played Dr Gordon Ormerod in the television series The Royal from 2003 to 2011. It seems he makes an excellent doctor as IMDB quote him as saying, "The lady behind the cheese counter at my local supermarket thinks I'm the real thing and continually asks me for advice about her ailments, primarily her battle with her varicose veins. Not what you want to talk about when you're ordering a quarter pound of Stilton!"

Robert's other credits include Casualty, Roger Roger and Outside Edge for which he was nominated Best Actor in the British Comedy Awards. Later this year he can be seen playing  Professor John Chessman in the horror film The Unfolding. One of Robert's favourite appearances was on the last episode of A Bit of Fry and Laurie where he played the Last Post on his own trumpet.

Robert was brought up in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex and trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. He can often be heard on the radio, his most recent recording being Incredible Women by Rebecca Front and Jeremy Front. He has also written a crime novella The Rock.

Come September Robert will be Touring the UK in The Perfect Murder. See it if you can!
