Quotes from people Robert has worked with, such as co-stars

“Every time I do scenes with Rob, what I love about it is I never know which way it’s gonna go. It keeps me on my toes as an actor, and, I’ve said this to him a thousand times, but I so often find myself not in the scene because I’m watching him do an amazing performance. And that happens very rarely, you know, as an actor you’re just trying to stay in your own thing… but I get drawn in by Rob’s performance very often.” [Tom Hopper about working with Robert in The Umbrella Academy, 2022]

“Every time working with Robert I have to do my best, because he’s such a brilliant improv partner. We had so many stuff that hit the cutting room floor of us breaking character.” [Aidan Gallagher about working with Robert in The Umbrella Academy, 2022]

“Rob makes me laugh daily when I work with him on set. I mean, I’m always in fits of laughter – probably when I shouldn’t be, either. He tests my ability to not corpse a lot, for sure.” [Tom Hopper on working with Robert in The Umbrella Academy, 2020]

“Robert was being incredibly annoying all season and just mimicking me every chance he got. We’d be having a conversation and then suddenly he’d just start repeating my words and my mannerisms. It was horrible! A horrible experience.” [Justin H. Min joking about Robert’s preparation for the scenes in which Ben possesses Klaus’ body in the Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy, 2020]

“We played scrabble and Robert hustled me. He made it seem like he had never played before, just like ‘Oh, I don’t really know what I’m doing…’ and then suddenly it was like quadruple word score, with the letter Q, 500 points.” [Justin Min about killing time with Robert on the set of The Umbrella Academy, 2020]

“No one thinks like him, no one performs like him, he is the most unpredictable… we had to do a scene where we were all wasted on LSD. I was fighting for my life just trying to not crack up.” [Ron Perlman, 2020]

“When it comes to his work, and I’ve seen him on set, he will drill something… like ‘No, it’s not what it needs to be’. And I’ll watch that frustration in his head. He won’t stop until it’s right.” [Tom Hopper, speaking directly to Robert during The Earth Locker podcast, 2020]

Quotes by interviewers

“Robert is one of my favorite people to interview in the entire planet. I’ve interviewed him for many of the TV shows and films that he’s been in, and he never, ever disappoints. He’s got one of those voices that you can just listen to… he could read the telephone directory and you’d be drooling and bewitched by his intoxicating accent and passion for life.” [Jamie East from Netflix, 2020]

“Robert, I mean this in the best way possible, but this role of an enigmatic cult leader suits you pretty well.” [Cameron Scheetz from The A.V. Club about Robert’s role as Klaus in The Umbrella Academy 2020]
