Leeís Summit Actor On The Way To Fame Remembers His Roots

Leeís Summit Actor On The Way To Fame Remembers His Roots

March 8, 2014

Rob Fuller

By Wendy Hayworth

Working his way towards fame, actor Rob Fuller has not forgotten his roots as a 1989 Leeís Summit High School Graduate. He will be participating in the Head Shave for Hope House by auctioning off the ability to shave his head, beard, and for the right price: his chest.

Fuller, has made it to the big screen this past year in "The Escape Plan" with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. This film, on DVD now, will be followed by "Chavez Cage of Glory," on DVD in may, and "The Kidnapping of Freddy Heineken" in theaters later this year. In addition, also plays a major role in the season finale of "Star Crossed" on the CW Channel and has many projects lined up for this upcoming spring.

Fuller did not start out as an actor. In fact, he started out his adult life as a male stripper and bodybuilder.

"My senior year a friend of mine got into male stripping and I was really jealous because I thought of how many women he was getting and that kind of lifestyle. So, I ended up going into male stripping for seven years," Fuller said.

In addition to performing, Fuller began his career as a bodybuilder. Having always been skinny, he graduated from Leeís Summit High School weighing 140 lbs. A year and a half later, he was up to 235 lbs.

"I took second twice in Mr. Missouri and I won the Missouri Power Lifting Championship," Fuller said.

This competitiveness has given him an edge in the acting world as he does his own stunts.

"Most of the stuff I go in for, I usually get," Fuller said. "I donít waste my time going out for parts Iím not going to get."

So far, Fuller has found his specialty in playing the role of a prisoner. His built body and boxing history lends itself well to the part.

"It gets me good exposure because I donít do just normal background. Iím not doing this for the money. Unless itís a feature spot, Iím not going to waste my time," Fuller said.

In the last two years, Fullerís career as an actor has begun to take off. The upcoming spring brings many new auditions and opportunities.

"I am doing this for the future. Once I make it, the money will be there but I have to work for it," Fuller said.

Fuller lives in Leeís Summit with his wife, Julie, of 15 years and their 10-year-old daughter Reece.
