Local actor Robby Griffith passed away on Friday. He often appeared in plays at Theatre Knoxville Downtown and in Tennessee Stage Company’s Shakespeare on the Square. Robby also worked at Lawson McGhee Library and occasionally as an English teacher at Pellissippi State Community College. The Knoxville theatre community will certainly mourn his loss.
I only had one scene with Robby in Fish Bait but we posed for a photo together at the movie’s premiere at Patrick Sullivan’s in October, 2009. Robby played a scary character who warned us about the dangers lurking at the bottom of the lake.
