Cliché: Tell us about your character in a couple of sentences.
Ronnie Rose Jr: Vinnie is the main character’s (Luke) best friend. He is a big, fun guy who has a laid back outlook on life and women.
Have you ever played this role in your own personal dating life?
Yes, I am Vinnie almost to a T!
What do you like/dislike about your character?
I like Vinnie’s brutal honesty and the fact that he isn’t afraid to say exactly what he is thinking to anyone who will listen. I don’t dislike anything about this guy.
Tell us about your most memorable experience while shooting this series.
My most memorable experience had to be the bachelor party scene, for obvious reasons. I also enjoyed the mob scene thanks to having the beautiful Michelle Prenez (Bambi) on my lap for a couple hours.
How did you come to be a part of this project?
I was approached by Lauren Patrice Nadler and asked to become a part of the webseries. Being in Lauren’s studio for only a few months, I was honored she believed in me to make me a part of her project.
What was it like working with your longtime teacher wearing the director hat?
It was interesting because Lauren approaches directing from an actor’s point of view. She really likes making sure each actor gets to where they need to go, and she covers it (literally) from EVERY angle [laughs].
How collaborative or how much freedom did you have to “play” or improvise on the set?
We had some freedom to play on set, but most webseries episodes are so short it is crucial to get to the point ASAP.
