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 the origin of his career and how did the passion for acting come about in his life. Check out full interview below!

Throwing back to the origins of your career, how did the passion for acting come about in your life?

RONEN RUBINSTEIN: You know, this is so cliché, but acting very much sort of saved my life in many ways. You know, in high school I was on a very bad road. I was around the wrong kids, around the wrong influence, you know? Messing with drugs, fighting and missing school and it was just not good stuff. One of my guidance counselors noticed that I really needed to get my act together and she suggested I go into theater because she thought it could be good for me, to sort of release that energy. And that, I guess, fire into something productive and it’s almost like she knew and it worked.

I fell in love immediately. Rehearsing a play, working with other actors, being held accountable because after school I would go rehearse and work on the play instead of going out and, you know, drinking or smoking or fighting or doing some stupid shit. I dedicated my time and passion into a creative outlet and I fell in love immediately. I knew immediately that’s what I wanted to do. I just didn’t necessarily know how to do it professionally, but eventually I sort of figured it out and everything happened really fast, you know?

Like by the time I was eighteen, I had a movie at Sundance and I was the male lead and everything just happened – Just one thing led to another and I got thrown into it really quickly and much quicker than I thought I would.

I think also quicker than I was ready for because I was still a kid, trying to figure out my life and my priorities. So the fact that at 18 I was already in the middle of the industry around all these adults, it was pretty scary and I had to grow up much faster than I thought I would have to. But I’m so grateful for that because it made me, I think the person I am today and maybe the the the actor that I am today. So it’s almost like I needed that kick in the butt from the universe.

Among all the roles you’ve had the chance to play throughout your career, is there any particular role you’re most fond of?

I mean, it’d be hard not to say TK, you know. I think, just because I’ve had so much time with him. And again, I really feel like Tim Minear has blessed me with some of the most intricate, complex storylines on the show. You can really feel that he’s pouring his heart and soul into TK, and I’m so grateful for him and his writing. I’ve been on such a journey with this character.

I’ve done it all and I’ve seen it all with TK and and I’m sure there’s still stuff in the future that I’m not going to see coming. So I think with TK, it is definitely the proudest work of my career. It’s an incredible opportunity to be on a show like this, with so many people watching it and so many people appreciating it and you’re actually proud of the work that’s being put out there. I think it’s very rare and just very special. I’m just beyond grateful for all of it.

If you had to give some advice to people who want to pursue an acting career, which kind of advice would you give them?

I would say, stay patient. Stay persistent as hell, and be extremely prepared. I think those three things are crucial to anybody, I think to any form of artistry – you know, it could be music, it could be painting, it could be acting, any artistic outlet. Because rarely does it all happened immediately, or you make it big immediately, it takes a lot of time and you need to be prepared because there are a lot of people that are trying to do the same job. And it’s sort of like ‘what is going to separate you from the rest?’ And I think I truly believe in like ‘work harder than anybody else, be driven more than anybody else’ .

Just work your ass off and just be really, really persistent. I think obviously this goes without saying, but just be professional, just be a decent person, you know what I mean? That should go without saying, but that’s not always necessarily the case. I think those four things would be really crucial.

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