Rob Kazinsky thinks Stephen Moyer will have huge career as a Director

Check out the latest podcast from EJ Scott. This time, EJ’s guest is Rob Kazinsky known for his appearances in Pacific Rim and East Enders in the UK. Also, he was most recently seen in “Pacific Rim” and has just been cast in the films, Warcraft and Kingdom of Rain.

True Blood fans know Rob best as “Ben”, aka Warlow in Season 6 of True Blood. Listen to hear Rob talk about how he got the part on True Blood, (at about 1:25) what it was like to work with Anna Paquin and how much he enjoyed it. He did mention that it was a bit difficult being tied to a gravestone for several episodes and how Anna teased him about it.

He also praised Stephen Moyer.  He said that being a fellow Brit, Stephen took him around the set the first day and he appreaciated that very much.  He also thinks that Stephen Moyer will be a great director.  

He enjoyed working with him and said:

Steve has a real surety about him; a real kind of intelligence…just naturally, I trust him as a director.  I really do.  I think he’s going to have a huge career as a director. I think he really knows how to work with people. I think he knows how to structure a scene. I felt as comfortable with him as I did with Guillermo del Toro [director of Pacific Rim] and I think he has a real future as a director; I was really blown away by it.

Rob also discussed his sex scenes with Anna and that he spoke to Steve about it before the first scene was shot and Steve replied:

“Don’t be stupid, just act man, it’s your scene, she’s great, your great and just do it.” 

Now, that to me really sounds like Stephen, don’t you think?  Love it!!!




  1. Lovely to read those words of praise from Rob.  The TB episodes Stephen has directed have been winners with me.  I’m delighted he’s directing the first episode of Season 7.  His advice to Rob about the sex scenes with Anna … forthright and to the point.  Well said!

  2. Great interview and love the praises for Stephen’s directing and his quote! sure sounds like him!

    I am getting antsy for June….

  3. I am so glad to have heard this.  Rob sounds liker a down-to-earth, no drama kind of guy.  I wish Warlow could have had a scene or two that gave us a clearer picture of his anguish and self-hate, as Rob’s remarks indicate.

    He was generous and candid in his descriptions of Ryan, Anna, and Stephen.  So glad to hear his praise of Stephen as director.  That makes it unanimous from the cast of S6…they all loved working with Stephen.
