Interview de l'acteur Ronen Rubinstein pour Flaunt en Février 2020.
Ronen Rubinstein. When thinking of the words to describe the budding star, a few come to my mind. Charismatic, talented, fashionable, but above all, passionate. Passionate about his work, about acting, fashion, activism. There is so much more to Rubinstein than meets the eye. Ronen got his first big break on the hit show Orange Is The New Black and has since been offered a starring role in the new Fox series 9-1-1: Lone Star. The show follows a group of law enforcement officers based in Austin Texas who fight for the people and work to make the world a better place, little by little.
Ronen stars alongside A-listers like Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler. Ronen plays Tyler Kennedy “TK” Strand, an openly gay firefighter who is a recovering opioid addict. The show portrays this new law enforcement team as his second chance to get back on his feet. Through my interview with him for Flaunt Magazine, I learned so much about the superstar in the making that I’m sure his dedicated fans from the start as well as his newfound fans would love to know about their new fave actor! Interview below, also catch Ronen’s new show 9-1-1: Lone Star on every Monday night on Fox at 8 PM central time!
That’s nice to hear, thank god for your guidance counselor! Let’s talk about the new show 9-1-1 Lone Star, could you tell me a little bit about it?
Oh my god it’s a mega, super crazy, cool show. We have the most collective group of cast and we have a really big cast and we have so much diversity and inclusivity. We have a female Muslim character, a Black transgender male, we have an openly gay man. I play the openly gay man without it ever being a fake or like a coming out story. We have every flavor of ice cream you could ask for. I think it’s a really beautiful reflection of the world that we live in. People that are actually out there, people that are watching, people that live in America.
America was created with all different cultures, flavors, walks of life, and it’s really beautiful to be part of a mainstream show that has such a massive audience but be able to sort of push the boundaries really of reflecting the reality of, our people, because we’re all from all different walks of life and all different backgrounds and cultures and it’s just really beautiful to be able to represent that. Still in a really respectful and fun way, because at the end of the day, the show is still really fun. We’re not trying to bash people and try to teach people about how they should think or like pick sides. We’re just showing in a really fun and honest way. And they’re already grappling on to that. It’s amazing to see the response just from promos and trailers. I expect really really big things for the show.
