Kane Brown: ‘I’ve Been Wanting To Do Acting Longer Than Music’
Kane Brown is making his acting debut on Friday (4/7) on the CBS drama Fire Country. Kane talked about his wanting to act and getting to do just that in the new drama.
Brown told The Hollywood Reporter, “They wrote a script specifically for me to jump on the show. Acting’s something I’ve always wanted to do, so it was cool to be a part of [this] for my first time, especially the character. He’s so laid back and trying to stay out of the spotlight, which I felt like was kind of perfect for me. It was the perfect start of my acting career.” Kane plays a character named Robin, a mysterious train hopper who helps injured patients on the scene of a crash.
Fire Country was co-created by actor Max Thieriot, who plays Bode Donovan, a firefighter participating in a program to fight fires in hopes of a shortened prison sentence. Brown said he enjoyed conversing about the series and acting with Thieriot, a massive fan of country music. He said, “I didn’t know what to expect until I was [on set]. And once I got there, it was Max and all them — they were so family-oriented and made me feel welcome. They were saying that I was a natural at it.”
He added, “It felt good. I wish I could go back and do it again. So at least in my next role, if I get one, I’ll be a little bit more experienced. And that’s what everything is — music, acting, whatever — the more experience, the better you get.”
Kane has wanted to act for a while now. He said, “It’s weird because I never really knew that I wanted to do music. And acting was like, ‘It would be cool.’ And I used to go for those little things you could sign up for online — the castings for extras. I tried to do those a couple times, and I never got picked. They just go off looks and stuff, and I never made it. “I’ve been wanting to do acting longer than music.”
