Mar 11, 2024

ROB MILLS is a born entertainer, he is singer- songwriter, presenter, actor, MC, author and media personality. He has built an impressive career across screen & stage for nearly 20 years and in more recent times he has developed into an accomplished presenter and subsequently an author.

Rob first came to the nation’s attention in 2003 as a finalist on the first series of Australian Idol. Subsequently he spent 3 years as Erinsborough villian and series regular in Neighbours, where he played the ever troubled Finn Kelly.

He is currently performing the role of William Shakespeare in the brand-new smash hit musical "&Juliet" at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne. Last year saw Rob playing the role of Corny Collins in the Melbourne season of the 20th Anniversary of Hairspray the Musical.

He has also had celebrated roles in musical shows Wicked, GHOST, Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Chess, Puffs! and on screen in Neighbours, Winners and Losers, the Peter Allen Telemovie, Dancing With The Stars, The Masked Singer, Have You Been Paying Attention and has been a regular on Carols by Candlelight. Rob has enjoyed hosting all the colour from Flemington across Network Ten’s Spring Racing Melbourne Cup Carnival coverage for the past few years and presenting travel and tourism stories on the Nine Network’s Postcards.

In 2022, Rob was on Dancing With The Stars – ALL STARS, where we wowed the judges and the home viewers with his impressive Latin and Ballroom moves.

He recently released his first book exploring what it is to be a modern Aussie man- ‘Putting On A Show’ and is available through Affirm Press.

We chat about being the Moomba king, life after fame and Australian idol, ego, taking ownership, emotions, his new book, losing his singing contract, his favourite day February 2nd, embracing your weird, entertainment, success and plenty more!
