Interview with longmire s robert taylor on home family
Taylor was born on 7 July 1963 in Melbourne, Australia. His parents separated when he was nine, and he moved to a mining town in Western Australia to live with his aunt and uncle. He worked as a miner when he was a teenager; he had several jobs after that, including lifeguard and bouncer, and went to the university three times.
At 21, Taylor went to work on an oil rig in the Indian Ocean. His ship collided with another and sank off the west coast of Australia, but he and two crew mates escaped on a lifeboat. Taylor suffered a broken arm and ribs and, while recovering in the hospital, he saw an ad for auditions for drama school in Perth at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA). He joined WAAPA after a successful audition at the age of 24.
Taylor started acting professionally in 1988 after graduating from WAAPA. His first major role was in 1989 as Nicholas Walsh in the Australian television soap Home and Away. His first lead role came in 1993 when he was cast as David Griffin in the Australian mini series The Feds. He then appeared in various guest roles and on TV movies in Australia, such as Blue Heelers and Stingers, often being cast as a police officer.
Taylor's big break in Hollywood came when he was cast as the shapeshifting Agent Jones in the 1999 blockbuster The Matrix. In 2000, he starred alongside Chris O'Donnell in the action thriller Vertical Limit. His other film credits include The Hard Word (2002), Storm Warning (2007), Rogue (2007), and Coffin Rock (2009).
In 2000, Taylor took on role of Father Vincent Sheehan in Ballykissangel, a British television drama set in Ireland. His television credits after that include MDA (2002), Satisfaction (2010), Cops L.A.C. (2010) and Killing Time (2011). In 2011, Taylor was cast for the lead role of Walt Longmire in A&E's crime drama series Longmire. The series later moved to Netflix after the third season and the network has renewed the series for its sixth (final) season which is to air in 2017.

Roles & Characters
Robert Taylor played the title role in the series Longmire as Walt Longmire. Walt is a charismatic, unflappable and dedicated sheriff of Absaroka County. He is a man in psychic pain due to his wife’s death. He tried to bury his pain behind a brave face using his dry sense of humour. After constant reminding from his daughter, Cady, Longmire decides to come out of the grief and turn his life around. A new female deputy appointed in his department named Vic, helps him to boost his self-confidence. With her help, he once again becomes committed about his job and decides to run for re-election. Longmire feels betrayed when a young, ambitious, deputy named Branch, chooses to run against him for the post of sheriff. Even then, his decision to contest in the election remains unwavering as he was a man who was dedicated to the welfare of his community. Longmire had a close friend named Harry Standing Bear who he often looked up for support. The series tells us about the various challenges Longmire had to face both in his professional and personal life.
When asked about his character in Longmire in an interview, Robert Taylor said that he always loved to play lead roles. However, he felt that his character in Longmire was a bit different one when compared to most of the other characters he did. Taylor felt that if Longmire didn't have his daughter, he would have rather found peace going into the woods with a copy of Dante's Inferno, a rifle, a bottle of whiskey, and would have never bothered to come back. Taylor also felt that his character was of a loner and he liked that.
Robert Taylor played the role of Agent Jones in the film "The Matrix." Agent Jones was an accomplice of Agents Smith and Brown. He assisted his fellow agents with the interrogation of Morpheus. When Trinity and Neo attempted to free Morpheus from the government office where he was held, Agent Jones showed up as a helicopter pilot named "Kim" who was badly calling for backup. In the film, Agent Jones also leaves the audience perplexed when he uses his extreme speed to avoid Neo's bullets aimed straight at him. However, he is not able to kill Neo because he was also brilliant at avoiding fatal wounds. In the film, Agent Jones also suffer a close-range shot through his head, which was shot by Trinity in order to save his associate Neo. However, this does not kill Jones but merely sends him out of the body he had possessed.
Likewise, Jones manages to survive most of the movie. He was last seen in the film with Agent Brown. Both were watching the fight between Agent Smith and Neo. After that, Jones was believed to have either upgraded or deleted to become Jackson, Thompson, or Johnson.
Agent Jones became famous for his statement made towards Neo when he is ready to kill Neo in the film. He said the words "Only Human." at that moment. This statement implies that Jones had a certain degree of hatred towards humanity, even though it was not as severe as what Agent Smith had.
