'9-1-1: Lone Star' Cast: Meet Rob Lowe, Gina Torres, Ronen Rubinstein and all old and new stars in Fox's action drama
'9-1-1: Lone Star' returns for its second season on Fox somewhat shaken up by the pandemic. One of its main stars, Liv Tyler, has had to drop out of the series due to coronavirus concerns, whose spot will be filled by a new character, played by Gina Torres. We take a look at some of the show's cast and where else you might have seen them in their acting careers.
Rob Lowe stars as Owen Strand, firefighter captain from New York City who moves to Austin, Texas with his son after losing his entire firehouse in the 9/11 Twin Tower attacks. Rob Lowe is a longtime Hollywood icon, who made his acting debut with the ABC sitcom 'A New Kind of Family'. From there, he quickly went on to become a member of the famed Hollywood "brat pack," as it was called, with roles in films such as 'The Outsiders', 'Class' and 'St. Elmo's Fire'. He is best known for his roles on 'The West Wing', 'Parks & Recreation' and 'Code Black'.
Gina Torres is a new addition to the show, playing Tommy Vega, a paramedic captain, as well as the mother of eight-year-old twins. She is returning to work after her husband's restaurant has problems due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Torres is most widely known for her role as the gun-slinging Zoe Washburne on 'Firefly', and its sequel, 'Serenity'. She's also starred as Jessica Pearson on 'Suits' and its spin-off, 'Pearson'. She's appeared in a number of film and television roles, including 'Hercules', 'Xena: Warrior Princess', 'Angel' and '24'.
Ronen Rubinstein plays TK Strand, Owen Strand's son. TK is a firefighter and paramedic who joins his father's team, is openly gay, and is also a recovering opioid addict. Ronen is an actor best known for his roles on 'Orange is the New Black', 'Smiley Face Killers' and 'Dude'.
The series also stars Sierra McClain as Grace Ryder, Jim Parrack as Judson "Judd" Ryder, Natacha Karam as Marjan Marwani, and Brian Michael Smith as Paul Strickland.
