As grifter and card shark Albert Stroller, Vaughn appeared in all but one of the 48 episodes of the British television drama series Hustle (2004–2012). From January to February 2012, he appeared in the long-running British soap opera Coronation Street as Milton Fanshaw, a love interest for Sylvia Goodwin, played by veteran English actress Stephanie Cole.
In his memoir, A Fortunate Life, Vaughn recalls watching his good friend Jack Nicholson stumble his way through a scene of Bus Stop in a mid-1950s acting class without the "confidence" to carry it off. "Nicholson declared, 'Vaughnie, I'm going to give myself two more years in this business. Then I'm going to look for another way to make a living.' 'Hang in there, Jack,' Vaughn told him. 'You're too young to quit.'"
Vaughn married actress Linda Staab in 1974. They appeared together in a 1973 episode of The Protectors, called "It Could Be Practically Anywhere on the Island", in which Staab played a ditzy American whose dog was stolen; eventually Vaughn's character, Harry Rule, found the dog. They have adopted two children, Cassidy (born 1976) and Caitlin (born 1981). They reside in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
For many years it was believed Vaughn was the father of English film director and producer Matthew Vaughn, born when the actor was in a relationship with early 1970s socialite Kathy Ceaton, but a much later paternity investigation subsequently identified the father as George de Vere Drummond, an English aristocrat and godson of King George VI. Early in Matthew's life Robert Vaughn had asked for the child's name to be Vaughn, and he continues to use the surname professionally.
