Derosa initially auditioned for the role of Tony Hutchinson, however it was Nick Pickard who was eventually cast. Two weeks later, Derosa received a call from the producers and was offered the role of Rob. The actor auditioned two days later and he began filming his first scenes shortly afterwards.
Derosa left Hollyoaks after his character was stranded at sea in the video spin-off, Hollyoaks: Off on One. He told Wendy Granditer of All About Soap that he thought that was it and he did not want to return to the show. However, the producers called him and asked if he would return for a four-night special. Derosa said he read the scripts and knew he had to return. He added "Since then the storylines have stayed strong and the producers have allowed me to turn Rob into a real theatrical villain, which I love."

Famous quotes containing the word casting:
“This I do know and can say to you: Our country is in more danger now than at any time since the Declaration of Independence. We dont dare follow the Lindberghs, Wheelers and Nyes, casting suspicion, sowing discord around the leadership of Franklin D. Roosevelt. We dont want revolution among ourselves.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
“For the gods, though slow to see, see well, whenever a man casting aside worship turns folly.”
—Sophocles (497406/5 B.C.)
“All we know
Is that we are a little early, that
Today has that special, lapidary
Todayness that the sunlight reproduces
Faithfully in casting twig-shadows on blithe
Sidewalks. No previous day would have been like this.”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)
