In 2019 Roy will be spending time between idyllic Waiheke Island, (a half hour fast ferry ride from New Zealand's biggest city, Auckland) and his Sydney base at Coogee Beach. He intends to keep working in Australia using his downtime to relax with his wife on Waiheke and spend time fishing, gardening and visiting vineyards and the many other attractions on offer.

2018 was a busy year with weekly promos for Fox Sports Friday Night Football in the early part of the year, another portrayal as Harry Strang in the second series of JACK IRISH, and work on the final season of RAKE. He also appeared as Judge Burton in the feature film MYALL CREEK DAY OF JUSTICE about the appalling Myall Creek massacre of Aborigines in 1838. Other work included a short film for writer/director Kane Guiglielmi , THE CONFESSION, and a video clip for Kangaroo Valley band Baxter Stone and the Chocolate Dogs.

He worked with Paul Hogan again on Hoge's new movie THE VERY EXCELLENT MR DUNDEE directed by long term collaborator Dean Murphy.

He finished 2018 with a major role in the See Saw Films TV series THE END, playing the character of Art Weinberg alongside actors Francis O'Connor and Dame Harriet Walker. The series is to screen later in the year on Foxtel’s rebranded Fox Showcase, Sky Atlantic and streaming service Now TV in the UK and Ireland next year.

Roy continues to be one of Australia’s busiest voice over artists with continuing work on the iconic Crimsafe radio campaign,TV campaigns for real estate company Purple Bricks, Aldi supermarkets, Drummond Golf and voluntary v/o work for the Temora Aviation Museum.

In between work Roy found time to visit friends and relatives in New Zealand and to spend time with daughter Kelly, son in law Carlos, and grandchildren Jason and Mateo in Santiago, Chile.

Due to his intention of taking more time out Roy reluctantly resigned as Patron of the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation, after many satisfying years of fundraising work.

He continues to support the Australian screen industry and is still very concerned with issues relating to copyright theft.

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

Roy will still find time to follow his sporting interests in Australia 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.
