Robert Seeliger was born on October 13, 1966, in Prince George, British Columbia, and is the oldest of three children. His mother Anne McGregor, a health care worker, is Scottish, and his father Juergen Seeliger, a steam engineer, is German. Robert was six years old when his parents divorced. He and his brother were raised by their father on a hobby farm with cattle and horses in a remote area of Northwestern Alberta, in the foot hills of the Rocky Mountain Range. The closest village from where the Seeliger's lived, was Elmworth, consisting of a school, curling rink, and a Post Office. Robert attended Elmworth Elementary School, and then later Beaverlodge Highschool. He left home at sixteen and graduated at Spectrum Highschool in Victoria, British Columbia. After attending one year at Camosun College, Robert dropped out and worked as a tree feller, DJ, and a carpenter for several years before entering show business. In 1996, Seeliger began studying at the Actors Ensemble Workshop, mentored by Janine Manatis in Toronto, Ontario. Four years later he got his first break, while auditioning for Tony Bill in 'The Harlan County War' (2000), staring Holly Hunter and Stellen Skarsgard. In quick succession, Seeliger appeared in television, getting guest spots on 'The Relic Hunter' (2000), 'Earth: Final Conflict' (2000), 'The Two Us' (2000). Seeliger quickly gained notoriety and played opposite Nicolette Sheridan in the television thriller 'Deadly Betrayal' (2003), Anne Heche's biker boyfriend in 'Gracie's Choice' (2004), and the charismatic cowboy, Greg Oneal, in the mini-series 'Miss Texas' (2005). It was Stefan Krohmer, an acclaimed German director who was seeking out an American Actor to play the role of Bill, in his film 'Summer 04' (2006) staring Martina Gedeck, that landed Seeliger in one of his most challenging and mesmerizing performances. A sizzling German love story, written by Daniel Nocke, for which Seeliger performed in German. 'Summer 04' was first launched at the 2006 International Cannes Film Festival, and later that year at the International Toronto Film Festival. Both Seeliger and Gedeck were pre-nominated for the Deutsche Film Prize, and critics were taking notice. In 2007, Seeliger and his then wife, Natalia Woerner, were garnered with 'Couple of the Year' by Gala Magazine.
