Robert Pike Daniel (AKA Rob Daniel) was born in the Western Isles of Scotland, raised in South Africa.  Daniel studied acting at the Durban Academy of Speech & Drama in Glenwood, Durban, South Africa.
Daniel started acting at 5 years old, but made his professional stage debut at 10 years old.
By 1975, he would return to the UK where he studied writing/directing at the National Film & Television School in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, England. While attending school he also worked as a journalist for newspapers, radio, and TV, including the BBC, and Radio TV Hong Kong, as well as doing voice work for London Broadcasting Company, and to act as the London correspondent for Radio Television Hong Kong, which all led to commercials, books on tape, and animation.
