Live Chat: Virtual Talk Back with Robert Newman (GUIDING LIGHT)

Robert Newman is perhaps best known for his 28-year run as Joshua Lewis on the longest running program in broadcasting history, Guiding Light. The role garnered him 2 Daytime Emmy nomina­tions for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

He has recently guest starred on House of Cards, Chicago Fire, Homeland, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and Law and Order: SVU. Film credits include Amazing Spider-Man 2Dracano, and the short film Deadline, for which he earned the Best Actor award at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival in 2014.

His off-Broadway and regional stage credits include appearances on the North Carolina Theatre stage and Cape Fear Regional Theatre stage as Daddy Warbucks in Annie. This month he was starring in the Cape Fear Regional Theatre production of A Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Hear what Robert has to say about taking on the role of Ed Boone, how autism has touched his life, and of course, Guiding Light.
