Although the actor admits to enjoying the life of fame and the recognition that came with it, those closest to him and his personal relationships were affected. Obson himself tarnished them a “car crash”.
“I was losing touch with what mattered in life.
“Dad turned up, he’d worked hard all his life and he looks at his son who he has given everything to, blood, sweat and tears, and he goes ‘Are you happy?’, and I went, ‘Yeah,’ but deep down I knew I wasn’t and I realised I didn’t have anything. Because all I was doing in my life was acting.
“I was a people pleaser, always desperate for recognition, reassurance and I needed help. So I went to see a therapist. He said to me, ‘So tell me who Robson Green is’. I said ‘I am this guy who acts’. He said, ‘No, that’s your career. Who are you?’ I didn’t have a clue.”
