2017 is proving to be another busy year for Roy.

He has travelled to Chile and New Zealand to visit family and friends and another trip to Chile is planned for October. He went pheasant shooting in NZ's South Island in July and attended the Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival in the outback town of Winton in June.

Work so far this year includes doing weekly promos for Fox Sports Friday Night Football, a role in sci-fi movie OCCUPATION, a regular role in new TV series SISTERS and major voice campaigns for Crimsafe, Arnotts and Aldi.

Coming up are roles in new series of RAKE and JACK IRISH and a series of videos for the Australian Turf Club.

Roy’s charity work continues for the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation (of which he is Patron) and he also helped out with this year's Black & White Ball to raise money for Vision Australia.

He continues to work tirelessly on behalf of the Australian screen industry. Roy has become the industry spokesperson in lobbying Government to deregulate the current outmoded restrictions (requiring unnecessary, but compulsory, union consultation) on producers’ abilities to import “name” foreign actors who can attract much needed private investment to top up Government subsidised local productions.

He is still very concerned with issues relating to copyright theft and works closely with the Australian Screen Association.

As a graduate of the NSW Police Community Awareness of Policing Program (CAPP) he attends NSW Police events and functions.

Roy still finds time to follow his sporting interests and is a regular at Randwick and Rosehill racecourses; Sydney Swans Aussie Rules football games at the Sydney Cricket Ground; and Clay Target shotgun competitions at the NSW Gun Club in Sydney’s Terrey Hills.
