Profile of Hopes: Robert David Hall by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health

Emmy award winning “Profiles of Hope” features CSI actor and Musician, Robert David Hall, who talks about overcoming physical trauma. Produced by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health’s Public Information Office.

In this interesting and informative Clip Robert David Hall tells of his life, his motor accident where he had both legs eventually amputated and his wish to continue performing playing many judges(sitting down) and eventually Doc Robbins, the coroner/pathologist in Criminal Science Investigation CSI for nearly all 364 episodes. He has taken forward advocacy for disabled people in the media through chairing the performers with disabilities committee of SAG(Screen Actors Guild).
