‘9-1-1’ Star Oliver Stark Offers High Praise For Co-star Peter Krause On Show

When it comes to actor Oliver Stark, he’s all down to work with Peter Krause on 9-1-1.

Stark plays Evan Buckley and Krause plays Capt. Bobby Nash.

These two have developed a rapport across the time they’ve spent together.

Nash has been a mentor for Buckley and many others in the firehouse.

Stark spoke about working with Krause in an interview with Assignement X.

“Peter Krause is the nicest man you can imagine,” Stark said. “For me, coming into this show, and the whole cast around me is supremely experienced, I was intimidated the first day, you know, ‘What are these guys going to be like?'”

Stark said everyone on 9-1-1 is lovely and welcoming. “It doesn’t feel like there’s any ego or anything involved, and they’ve all been incredible at making me feel comfortable,” he said. “And they’re great people, and a great group to work with. So no. No fear. Not yet.”

Krause Spent Time With NYC Fire Captain To Get More Info on Bobby’s Role

Speaking of Krause, did you know he spent time with a New York City Fire Department captain?

He did because Krause wanted to get more information on Bobby’s role.

The 9-1-1 star talks about that time.

Krause says “it’s a difficult job” when looking at the hours they keep, the number of hours they are awake, and do what they do.

There is a deep reality around those events on the show. Also, it’s good to recognize the bravery it takes to work in a fire station.

“Any time we’re experiencing difficulty onset, all of us always remind each other that this isn’t the real deal,” he said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. Krause also said that even though the role is a difficult acting role, “this doesn’t even come close” to real life.
