Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Apr 6, 2020

Homeland + The Americans + Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor Costa Ronin and I jump on Zoom for a talk about his TV shows and his life philosophy.

We get into:

  • Homeland (he plays Yevgeny, the Russian intelligence officer deeply entwined with Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes)
  • The Americans (he played Oleg Burov, who we all remember!)
  • Once Upon a Time in America & what a genius Quentin Tarantino is
  • Persistence
  • Following your purpose
  • Listening to your heart instead of your brain
  • Self-reflection
  • Acting
  • Getting a gig at a radio station at age 14
  • Growing up in the USSR
  • The coronavirus outbreak
  • Self-taping auditions
  • Sailing
  • Way, way more
