EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Ronen Rubinstein on the “stressfull” Season 4 of 911: Lone Star and the future of ‘Tarlos’- WATCH

911: Lone Star Season 4, which stars Rob Lowe, Ronen Rubinstein and more, is premiering January 24th on FOX. We at Survived The Shows had the pleasure of chatting with Ronen Rubinstein, about his experience on 911: Lone Star, the future of ‘Tarlos‘ and some highlights of Season 4. Check out full interview below!

What’s the main element in TK’s character and show in general that fascinates you the most and drew you to join 911 Lone Star?

Great question. I think, first and foremost, just how genuinely selfless he is, and I think he is a was truly born to be some sort of helper and some sort of someone that can do better for other people. And you know, we’ve seen in the past sometimes he puts his own life at risk in order to help someone else. And I think that’s sort of a double edged sword of TK, you know, he is so selfless that sometimes it’s extremely risky and dangerous. But I think that’s the beauty of TK.

You know, he’s a very complicated character and the fact that he has dealt with addiction and suicide and has lost his life almost many times and he had to deal with his father who had severe cancer and then lost his mother and all the drama with his first boy boyfriend and now Carlos – It’s just he’s dealt with so much and I think his strength and his just mental endurance is really impressive that he’s able to sort of overcome all these obstacles and still be a genuinely good, happy, passionate man. It’s really that the journey of TK has been incredible to watch, an incredible to play.

Where are you and TK most similar and where most different as human beings?

Without sounding too full of myself or, please don’t take this the wrong way – I think we both share a beautiful similarity: I truly care about other people and helping other people. You know, for me personally it’s stemmed from trying to take care of the planet and the people that live on it and the animals that live on it and being an activist has very much become something that I hold very near and dear to my heart and just as passionate about that as I am in my professional career.

I think with TK, you know, that’s something that obviously plays a – you know, he is a paramedic, he’s a firefighter, he’s someone that helps people with their darkest times, and I think the biggest difference is – the fact that he is actually a firefighter and a paramedic seems so daunting and intimidating and probably extremely scary at times and I think I would much rather play that on television and I have so much respect for the men and women that do it in real life because it just seems really scary. I don’t know if I’d be brave enough to do it. I’d like to think I could, but it just seems really intense. So, you know, that’s something that we’re very different.

What’s been the biggest challenge for you in portraying TK?

The subject matter with TK, you know, is very intense. From the first moment we meet him, you know, there’s addiction, suicide, heartbreak, you know, moving to a completely new state, which feels like a completely different world. I think just the subject matter, you know, we’re dealing with really heavy, heavy topics. You know, I think season three, episode 8, the fact that we’re dealing with addiction and losing a parent – that was the most challenging thing I’ve ever done in my career. And the fact that we’re doing it on a network show is really special because you only really sort of see that kind of stuff on cable or streaming.

And the fact that Tim Minear blessed me with that storyline. It challenged me like as an actor more than I’ve ever been challenged before.

I’ve been craving something like that and I’m just so happy that I’m able to show that and and. Represent that sort of those subject matters as respectfully as possible, because I know a lot of people watching the show are dealing with that or have dealt with that. You know, I’ve spoken to a lot of people who are either addicts or in AA or have lost a parent and. They just are really, really grateful for the show that we we show these kind of things. In as a respectful and truthful way as possible. And I and I I I hold a lot of responsibility. And I carry that sort of as a badge of honor to make sure I do it as best as I possibly could because of how serious these subject matters are.

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Ronen Rubinstein on the “stressfull” Season 4 of 911: Lone Star and the future of ‘Tarlos’- WATCH
To all the fans looking forward to watching the new season, how would you describe Season 4 of 911 Lone in just 3 words?

I could give you one word, stressful. It is stressful this season, whether it’s. The weather phenomenons or personal storylines? There is some stressful things this season and especially with TK. You know, like from the moment we watch episode one, there is a very stressful situation that he has to go through with Carlos that has to do with their future wedding and Tim has not held back at all and we are starting from the very beginning and very stressful season for all the characters, not just TK.

What can you tease about TK’s and Carlos’s journey throughout Season 4?

Roller coaster. A complete roller coaster. We’re going to have such amazing highs and such crazy lows and. You know, again, it just shows. How TK and Carlos can overcome anything and their love and their bond and their. You know, their ability to overcome obstacles is just. Truly amazing because. I think most couples would not have been able to survive what they’ve been able to survive and season four truly shows that and we we are going to deal with. Perhaps one of the most stressful situations of their relationship and we’re going to see that very soon in the beginning of the season, so. Yeah. But I think overall. They can overcome anything. And they’re they’re such a strong, beautiful couple. So I truly believe in them.

What’s the next challenge for TK in Season 4 of 911 Lone Star?

There’s many things. There’s many things. I think one of the biggest ones is we immediately find out in episode one. You know, it’s the big secret that we keep teasing that Carlos has and. I think there’s another huge one in Episode 4, which I think is the episode I’m most proud of so far this season. And then, you know, there’s always challenges of being a a paramedic, there’s challenges every single day.

I think there’s challenges that we may not necessarily see on camera, but there’s always challenges of being an addict. I think that’s something we can’t forget that. TK is going through this journey and this battle every single day. Um, and you know, he’s constantly, I think in some sort of. Journey or challenge? Um, that’s just sort of. The cards that have been dealt to him and yeah, it it it makes sense why he is such a sort of resilient person.

Talking about the environment on set, how would you describe your experience while filming 911 Lone Star and do you have any fun anecdotes to share?

You know when, when it’s the big group scenes, when it’s all of us, it’s like a circus. It is hilarious and especially if julians on set. That boy makes all of us laugh, and me and Julian have gotten very close and it’s hard for me to be around him on set. We’re like a couple of little kids in a playground. But you know, the the beautiful thing about the cast is like when it’s time to work, everybody’s so on their a game and it’s so dedicated and and and and cares about what we’re doing. Yeah, we have our fun you know? But I think. Most importantly, everybody’s there to work and do a really good job. And you could see it on screen, you know.

If you could choose any other character from 911 Lone Star, apart from TK, that you would have loved to play, which one would it be and why?

For the last three seasons I’ve said Grace and I don’t know. I think my answer is still Grace. Maybe it’s because the way Sierra plays her, she’s just brilliant. She’s my favorite character on the show. And I don’t know, she’s just such a soulful, beautiful human being, you know? And again, she has to deal with a lot of stressful situations. Just being a 911 operator is really really stressful. And then all for, you know, marriage drama and you know, now she has a baby and I think her character is just beautiful and that that would be really fun, yeah.

Did you take anything from set, any prop or piece of costume, to remember your experience as TK?

Yeah, so I took the necklace that I’ve had since the very first episode. It has the Firehouse number from New York. I have a couple of Austin fire T-shirts, a hoodie. Let’s see, what else did I take? I’m sure I’ve taken something else. Um, but yeah, I think there’s probably some other stuff I took.

911: Lone Star with Ronen Rubinstein will premiere on January 24th on Fox.

They say our favourite heroines’ strong characteristics live in each of us. Right for this reason I’d like to be beautiful like Brooke Davis, clever like Raven Reyes and confident like Stella Kidd. Instead, I’m flabby like Kate Pearson, dreamy like Belle Gold and determined like Brianna Fraser. I love passionate TV series, great cinema, and good books. To combine my greatest passions, I gave life to the world of Survived The Shows, which I’m currently running, as well as creating digital content and writing articles and reviews.
