Oliver Stark’s ‘9-1-1’ Calling
Oliver Stark believes that he was destined to play Evan “Buck” Buckley on 9-1-1.
Ironically, Stark was watching the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy do a Hollywood Reporter roundtable on July 28, 2017, when he got the notification. He received the email to audition for the role in his inbox.
“I was watching that, when the notification email came through to come and audition, that is true,” Stark confirmed to Brief Take.
Before he got the part, he was actually a fan of the series. He also knew that joining a show that was already in progress and with such big names would be a challenge.
“So a bit like Buck stepping into the firehouse for the first time and being the rookie, that’s kind of what I was to this cast,” Stark explained.
At first, he believed that portraying a firefighter on television would be much easier than the actual job. It was much more than just acting.
“It’s funny, you used the term ‘problem solving’,” he shared. “That’s one of the things that I have come to appreciate about and respect about first responders, that I never really had in a conscious way before. The idea that every emergency call that they go on is completely individual and unique.”
He particularly enjoys the problem-solving aspect of his role.
“There’s a book of rules and things that you are meant to do. But every time they go out there’s a problem to be solved,” he added. “How are they going to get into this building? How are they going to apprehend this individual?”
