|For the past 30 years, Robin Daugherty has been taping auditions and coaching actors at talent agencies, production companies, and casting agencies, in Minneapolis, New York, and Nashville (“over 15,000 times…”). Each year, Robin organizes a panel at the Nashville Film Festival, discussing the “Art of Auditioning.” A Nashville native, Robin’s acting adventure started at the age of 6, with an appearance at Chaffin’s Barn Dinner Theatre, which his uncle John had started a year earlier. That same year, Robin was hired on as a recurring cast member on the “Romper Room” kids’ show. At age 11, Robin became the youngest member ever of the Tom Tichenor Marionette Troupe, and at 14, he received a Young Filmmaker’s Commendation from the Sinking Creek Film Festival, which evolved into today’s Nashville Film Festival. Since then, Robin has worked in many areas of film, television, and theatre production.
Currently, Robin can be seen starring in TV commercials, music videos, ep. 102 of BORN AGAIN VIRGIN (TVOne) , eps. 304 and 402 of NASHVILLE (ABC), as well as the feature films CHANGING HEARTS (2002), CHASING GHOSTS (2015), PATERNITY LEAVE (2015), REMEMBER THE GOAL (2016), WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH GERALD? (2016), and the critically acclaimed WILD ROSE (2019). In spring of 2020, his series STRANGER HEARTS will become available on Amazon Prime and iTunes.
In 2015, Robin won the Best Actor award at the 48-Hour Film Festival for the short film, WHEN TO END. In 2016, he received the Best Supporting Actor award at the 54-Hour Film Festival for the short THE ASSASSINATION OF KELLY CLARKSON. Robin studied TV/Film Acting at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Vanderbilt University.
