From us here at VULKAN, Happy Birthday Rudy Pankow!
Today, August 12th, 2020 it’s your birthday. If you could invite anyone (living or dead), who would you pick?
What was a moment on set of OUTER BANKS that had a strong impact on you as an actor?
I think the hot tub scene really will forever be a feeling I will never forget.
If you could go back to one specific day on set, which would you pick and why?
The day we filmed Mid Summers. Really loved that day.
Share with us your first reaction when you read the script.
My first reaction was well hell yeah, I love this show even more than I thought.
Tell us more about your other projects. In what ways do you believe you have evolved as an actor thanks to these prior experiences?
I feel like my responsibility to do good and honest work has been set. And since I only want to get better at what I do, my goals need to evolve and aim higher then I have ever even imagined.
If you could be in any Disney movie, which would it be and why?
One they haven’t made yet, because I know Disney has the ability to create beautiful original stories that change people.
When you need to find some balance, what do you usually do?
Sometimes all it takes is a nice long walk. But also soccer, surfing, a good run, listening to music that you haven’t listened to before as well.
To someone who is struggling out there, what advice would you give them?
Whatever you are struggling with, I know you feel like it’s on you, but communicating your struggles to someone who really wants to listen is an amazing help. I’ve had to do that plenty of times. It takes bravery to put yourself in that situation but it needs to happen.
Describe to us the perfect date.
A normal day with the perfect person.
Share with us a childhood memory that has never become “old news.”
When I turned 15, my godfather took me out at night to listen to whales, and we were in the pitch black, and just listened to whales surface at 12 am at night.
What do you hope to accomplish as an actor?
I hope to accomplish making an impact in the industry and the world at viewing art, and how we make it.
Do you see yourself venturing towards working behind the camera as well?
Absolutely! I would love to work behind the camera.
Where do you go next?
That’s something me and my team are discussing now. Hopefully starting season 2 soon.
