* TheCastShowoff: Sang a bit and did all his own stuntwork in ''Some Mothers Do 'Ave Em''.
* CelebrityVoiceActor: As Cornelius in ''Once Upon a Forest''.
* CoverAlbum: All his albums have been this, each with their own particular [[ConceptAlbum theme]] in terms of subject matter. For example, ''On Eagle's Wings'' is his "Christian" album, ''The Disney Album'' contains [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin songs from Disney movies]], etcetera.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Was approached for the film version of ''Phantom'' in the 1990s but refused; he wouldn't play opposite anyone but SarahBrightman, his original Christine in London and on Broadway.
* WrittenByCastMember / DirectedByCastMember: Is known for having (and wanting) a ''lot'' of creative control in his chosen field. This was arguably the FatalFlaw of both ''Dance of the Vampires'' and ''[=EFX=]''.

* AuthorAppeal: Was fascinated by the idea of joining the air force, so much so it even crept into Frank Spencer's backstory in ''Some Mothers Do 'Ave Em''.
* AwfulWeddedLife: Was married for ten years to a woman called Gabrielle Lewis, which spawned two daughters. He has gone on record in saying that marriage burned him so much that he refuses to marry again.



* FriendToAllChildren: Has worked for many charities for the benefit of children. He even used to visit schools in-character as Frank Spencer.
* LimeyGoesToHollywood: And succeeds!
* NiceGuy
* SilverFox: Was fast approaching his 50s when he became really popular.

--> '''Chad''': Have you ever seen Michael Crawford on a cereal box?
--> '''Troy''': Who's Michael Crawford?
--> '''Chad''': Exactly my point! He was the [[ThePhantomOfTheOpera Phantom of the Opera]] on Broadway. Now my mom, she's seen that musical twenty-seven times. And she put Michael Crawford's picture in our refrigerator. Yeah, not on it, in it. So my point is, if you play basketball, you're gonna end up on a cereal box. If you sing in musicals, you're gonna end up in my mom's refrigerator.
--> '''Troy''': Why would she put his picture in her refrigerator?
--> '''Chad''': I don't know, one of her crazy diet ideas..
