Greg Robbins is an American actor/director. Creating the world’s first true Christian sitcom, “Pastor Greg” (2005), this actor originally stepped in front of the camera in 1984 playing a redneck thug in a PBS special, The Grand Baby (1985) (TV). Born in Glendale, California, Greg lived the first 13 years of his life in North Hollywood. He felt he would act for a living at a very young age. His grandfather gave him an 8mm camera when he was 9 years old and he began making home movies with his younger brothers. The summer before eighth grade he went to see the motocross movie On Any Sunday (1971) starring Paul Newman and Steve McQueen. Back then theaters had double features, and the movie playing first was Sometimes a Great Notion (1970), also starring Paul Newman. There is a scene in that film when Newman’s brother, played by Richard Jaeckel, is trapped under a log and drowns. Two things happened that day to Robbins: he acquired a fear of drowning and realized that he wanted to be an actor and tell stories.

Greg Robbins started his life in a body cast when, at four weeks of age, he was in a car accident with his parents. His legs were broken, and his doctors thought he would never be able to run and he could even possibly have a limp. IT was not to be, however, and Greg became a very good athlete. His grandmother said during that time that this boy would do great things for the kingdom of heaven. His storytelling ability surfaced in 1971 when his uncle was killed in Vietnam. The story of how he died made Greg decide to write the story down. This ended up being the first movie he ever wrote at age 11, called “John Henry”. Even though the film remains unproduced, it still remains his favorite story.

It was not long after this that Greg’s mother divorced his father, ending a very volatile life for Greg, his mother and his two younger brothers. Sometime after that Greg’s mother re-married, and Greg’s new stepfather was a good man and treated him well. Greg and his family moved to Granada Hills, California, when he was 13 and he stayed there until he was 25 years old. He bounced around Hollywood, attending the LA Actors Theater and Van-Mar Acting Academy and held a string of modeling jobs. Then after the SAG and WGA strikes in the mid-’80s, his grandfather talked him into going to “dealer college” in Las Vegas. Every time he had an audition or landed a role in a play or a modeling job he would leave Vegas and then return after the gig. This went on until he met his wife in 1991, when he settled down and started raising a family. In 1990 he met Jesus Christ in a very unusual way and that became the beginning of the many stories he would later tell in his sitcom “Pastor Greg”. The sitcom idea came in 1996 and, after writing it and developing the series, he was sure Hollywood would not like it, so he shelved it and went on to do the wildlife series “Animal Action” (2001). Through this time he kept developing his Christian sitcom. When he finally believed that it was God leading his steps, he surrendered and started the marketing process of the sitcom. This would continue a very powerful journey for Greg Robbins. Today he lives a wonderful life with his wife and two children, and is still producing faith- and family-friendly entertainment, the way God intended it to be.
