Rob Estes is on set today for the first day of filming the feature film Hello Herman directed by Michelle Danner. After graduating from USC, Estes took a utilitarian approach to entering Hollywood and made plans for a career as a stuntman. However, it was quickly apparent his talents deserved a wider berth. Following several years on the hit show Melrose Place and 90210, he starred in several well-received but ultimately unsuccessful television pilots. Frustrated with being limited to his work on screen, Estes made the decision to rediscover his craft on stage. He received excellent reviews in his starring role in The Rose Tattoo at the Hudson Theatre in Los Angeles. When he moved with his family to Seattle in early 2003, he sought out opportunities in that city’s thriving theatre scene. He had co-starring roles in productions in Seattle and at the nationally recognized Coeur D’Alene Rep in Idaho. This experience culminated in his co-starring performance as Solyony in Chekhov’s Three Sisters (adapted by Craig Lucas) at the Intiman Theatre, under the tutelage of Bartlett Sheer.
