Career[edit]

In a telephone interview with Monster Kid Radio Browne said whilst he was studying acting and getting bit roles he supported himself as a physical therapist. One of his clients was going to Rome and asked Roger if he would come with him to carry on his work. As the 1960 Summer Olympics were is session, Roger eagerly accepted the offer. He remained in Europe where he was discovered and offered a role in the Jayne Mansfield film It Happened in Athens. Upon return to Rome Browne was asked to appear as Mars in Vulcan, Son of Giove and repeated his role in the film Mars, God of War. With the decline of the sword and sandal genre Browne moved into the Eurospy genre.
