Robert Sellers was born in Leeds in 1965. Following graduation from drama school he aspired to a career on stage and screen. Alas, despite a few walk on roles, the world has been spared his acting, which is perhaps all for the best.
Instead he turned to film journalism - why not write about the medium he loves if he couldn't appear in it. Since the early 90s he has written numerous biographies, books on film and TV and popular culture including the bestselling Hellraisers. His book The Battle for Bond was the subject of controversial litigation and for a time was banned in Britain.
