Robert Boyd Holbrook[1] (born 1981)[2] is an American fashion model, actor, and artist.

Early life and modeling career[edit]

Holbrook was born in Prestonsburg, Kentucky, the son of Ellen and Don Holbrook.[1] He was discovered while he had a part-time job, working as a carpenter for a theatre in Kentucky.[1][3]

Since first signing with Elite Models in 2001, Boyd has worked for other agencies, such as Wilhelmina Models, Major Paris, Next, IMG, 2pm Model Management, View Management, Models1, Bleu, Friday, D'management Group, ScanElite, and Public Image Worldwide.[citation needed] Holbrook has been a model for such designers and labels as Gucci, Jean Paul Gaultier, Versus, Hugo Boss, Bill Blass, Calvin Klein, Moschino, Marc Jacobs, Dsquared.[citation needed]

Boyd and model Omahyra Mota were the subjects of photographer Ellen Von Unwerth Paris gallery exhibition "Omahyra & Boyd" and the 2005 book of that title from Exhibitions International (ISBN 2-914171-20-X).[4][5]

Other work[edit]

He released a short series of poems through the website Model-Max.com, accompanied by illustrations by Jamie Strachan.[6]

From modeling and traveling throughout Europe and Asia, he raised enough money and studied film in NYU [7] where he received a SCPS Certificate in 16mm Film (photography, lighting and editing writing). Boyd also audited classes at Columbia University on screen writing and film history. He has since produced five short films.

Boyd has also studied acting in William Esper Studio[8] and completed the prestigious two year Meisner Program as well as Shane Ann Younts - Voice and Speech 2 Year Program.[9] It was in 2007 when he sent a screenplay to director Gus Van Sant, who was impressed enough to give him the role of Denton Smith for the movie Milk.[10] His prior acting work includes a role in the "Allison" music video for Permanent Me alongside model Tiah Eckhardt.[11]

Boyd's other talents outside of modeling include photography, working for David Armstrong, and also sculpting, working for an established sculptor. He opened his first art show called "Iscariot" in RARE gallery in Chelsea, New York from April 19 to May 17, 2008.[12]

Personal life[edit]

Holbrook has been dating actress Elizabeth Olsen since 2012 after meeting on the set of Very Good Girls. In March 2014, the couple became engaged.[2][13]
