Rob Lowe Shares Details About ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’

Prior to the premiere of 9-1-1: Lone Star’s first season, Rob Lowe opened up to Entertainment Weekly about what fans can expect in the series.  

“I love action; I love a good procedural,” Lowe explained. “But that kind of special sauce they throw on it makes it not only really interesting to watch but really, really interesting as an actor.”

Lowe then explained that the 9-1-1: Lone Star role was pitched to him as being an athletic, adventurous, rugged, brave firefight who cares deeply about skincare. “That was the pitch! Like I said, I’ve known Ryan [Murphy] forever, and Brad [Falchuk] and I are very close friends.”

The actor also shared that he would get through entire scenes of 9-1-1: Lone Star and think the part was writing just for him. “It’s also this great dichotomy of a traditional action-oriented first-responder character. Who also has a streak of larger-than-life narcissism about him.”

When asked about preparing for his role as a firefighter, the 9-1-1: Lone Star castmate revealed that he has experienced some wildfires and floods throughout the years. This is due to the fact that his home in Santa Barbara has gone through it.

“Through that, I’ve not only had so many firsthand experiences with losing people in my community, I’ve also become very, very close with the [firefighters] in that area.”

Lowe goes on to add that he did training with the L.A. Fire Department as well. He also hosted a bunch of the firefighters at his home during the wildfires. “There’s always somebody on set to tell you what equipment you would use and what you would wear.”
