Today’s featured actor is Robert Rensin, finally revealed as Mr. Coen in Episode Six! Learn more about him, below!
I was born and raised in NYC. As a high school student I worked in the Catskills at the Concord Hotel as a folk singer (it was the 60’s) and actually opened for Rodney Dangerfield.
After a career in the mental health business I stumbled into an acting class and performed in community theater in St. Louis, quickly moving to professional theater there. I have had the pleasure of performing the works of Harold Pinter, Neil Simon, Arthur Miller and more. I was honored to be nominated twice for St. Louis’ premiere acting award, The Kevin Kline Award, for Best Supporting Actor, and won a Judy Award in the same category. I produced the teaser for City of the Blues,a script we hope will be picked up as an episodic cable TV show. During my six-month stay in LA trying to promote City of the Blues,I also auditioned for SAG projects that caught my interest.
3. What is your dream job/role/project?
My dream job is being a minor deity on a mosquito-free tropical island and being part of an acclaimed theater/film production company where an older character actor can grow and take pride in and be challenged by working with the best actors. And don’t forget film; I would love to perform important roles that add (QUIETLY) to the power of the whole.
