A tall (6'2"), dark-haired, handsome and quietly charismatic Bronx native, Robert Clohessy had enough talent and appeal to go places in the entertainment business, but got stuck in short-lived TV clunkers along the road to the top until he carved out his own niche with frequently sinister series guest work and a regular role as Officer Sean Murphy, one of the few genuinely likable characters on HBO's prison drama "Oz." The son of a police officer in the notorious 41st Precinct of the South Bronx, Clohessy relocated with his family to Rockland County in his late teens. Here he first took a stab at acting, his New York City-accented line delivery bringing down the house in a high school production of "Kismet." He found a love for the craft in his subsequent college years.
