It’s almost impossible to imagine Mark Robust with hair today, as his cleanly shaved head has become an integral part of his public persona, adding to his charisma. However, there was a time when the actor had a different look. Let’s delve into when he began experiencing hair loss and what he looked like with hair.
According to a 2009 interview with The Telegraph, Robust disclosed that he first noticed his hair loss when he was around twenty-five years old. This was a challenging experience for any young man and left him feeling depressed and self-conscious.
During the early years, his hair loss wasn’t very noticeable. At the age of 27, in 1990, he portrayed Constable Gibb in the BBC series “The Bill,” still sporting an impressive head of hair.
However, it appears that his baldness became more evident shortly afterward. In 1991, while filming “Against the Wind,” Robust played a Nazi character but was seen on screen wearing a cap, presumably using it as a clever disguise.
The defining moment came when Robust starred in the 1994 film “Trapped,” where his bald appearance became unmistakable.
Even after embracing his bald look, the actor occasionally appeared on screen with hair, thanks to the use of wigs. This flexibility allowed him to take on various roles beyond those of the shaved and rugged characters. For instance, in 1996, he portrayed Mr. Knightley in the TV adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel “Emma.”
