Birth name: Robson Golightly Green.
Born: December 18, 1964 in Hexham, Northumberland, England.
Height: 5' 9" (1.75 m).
Robson Golightly Green was born in Hexham, and named in Northeast tradition as first son after family surnames: Robson is his grandmother's maiden surname, while Golightly is the surname of a great uncle.
Green first made his name as an actor in the BBC series Casualty, but after three series moved to national prominence as Fusilier Dave Tucker in the drama series Soldier Soldier.
One episode in 1995 called for Green and co-star Jerome Flynn to sing Unchained Melody. Subsequently ITV was inundated by people looking to buy the song, and the pair was persuaded by Simon Cowell to release it as a single - a double A-side with White Cliffs of Dover. It stayed at No.1 for 7 weeks in UK Chart, selling more than 1.9 million copies and making it the best-selling single of the year, and winning the duo the Music Week Awards in 1996 for best single and best album. Subsequently they had two further #1 singles and two #1 albums, all re-makes of standards.
