Profile Bio Text
Robert Newman (June 27, 1958 in Los Angeles, California) is an American screen actor. Newman is best known for his role as Joshua Lewis on the American soap opera Guiding Light, a role he played from 1981 to 1984, and again from 1986 to 1991, and 1993 to Guiding Light series finale in September 2009. The character of Josh was initially introduced as a bad boy of sorts and paired with several female leads. With the arrival of Reva Shayne, played by Kim Zimmer, Josh and Reva became a popular "supercouple". Newman and Zimmer`s characters have become the cornerstone couple of the show, although Newman has been paired with other actresses, including Michelle Forbes (Sonni), Beth Ehlers (Harley), Marcy Walker (Tangie), and Crystal Chappell (Olivia). Newman was also involved in some of the more farfetched storylines on the show, including a controversial storyline where Josh had a presumed-dead Reva cloned, and another storyline involving time-travel. In addition to his role on Guiding Light, Newman also played the characters of Prescott Harrell on General Hospital, and Kirk Cranston replacing Joseph Bottoms, on Santa Barbara in 1986. Newman has been nominated for four Soap Opera Digest awards for his role as Josh Lewis. In addition, he has also been nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards in 2002 and 2006, both times in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. He is currently starring in the off-Broadway musical "Sessions" at the Algonquin Theater.
Robert is the youngest of five children. He attended Birmingham High School in California, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in theatre from California State University at Northridge. Robert was wed to actress Britt Helfer in 1986. The couple have two children, a son named Connor born in 1989, and a daughter named Kendal born in 1992.
