Original Casualty star Robert Pugh is unrecognisable 36 years on from BBC debut

AIRING for the first time in September, 1986, Casualty has seen an array of actors take the lead.

Robert Pugh was one of them and he has gone on to work on many other popular projects both on TV and on the silver screen since his exit.


Viewers may not fully remember Robert being part of the Casualty cast as his time on the programme was short-lived.

Many perhaps thought he had gone under the radar after leaving Casualty.

However, the 71-year-old has had several successful stints in other series since his exit.

With a prolific career on the British box, Robert starred in shows in the likes of Midsomer Murders, Doctor Who (he appeared in 2010 episodes The Hungry Earth and Cold Blood), The White Queen (2013), Death In Paradise (2011), Doctor Foster (2015) and Mr Selfridge (2016), amongst many others.

He was also the narrator of The Repair Shop, before being replaced by fellow actor Bill Paterson.

Game of Thrones viewers may also recognise him for his recurring role of Craster from 2012 and 2013, an unsavoury ally of The Night's Watch and a member of the Free Folk living beyond the Wall.
