Episode Fifteen: Ryan Robbins
Ryan Robbins’ Twitter bio describes himself as “that guy, from that show” – and it’s a well-earned and apt description. He’s Henry the nerdy werewolf from Sanctuary. He’s Tektor Murphy from Falling Skies. He’s Leslie’s sketchy first husband from Republic of Doyle. He’s Raiden from Mortal Kombat Legacy. You’ve seen him in Stargate Atlantis and Hell on Wheels and jPod and Continuum and Ascension and Ghost Wars and dozens of other shows you love. That Guy From That Show can currently be seen in one of his most nuanced and soulful roles to date: Noah Funk in Pure, about a Mennonite Mob and the pastor who is intent on bringing them down from the inside. In the lead-up to Pure’s second season premiere, RyRo drops by the YVR Screen Scene studio for a freewheeling and soulful interview about his childhood, his time in an Australian circus, and what he loves about Henry from Sanctuary and Noah from Pure.
