Costa Ronin “Oleg Burov” The Americans


Theater professional Costa Ronin joins the ranks of FX's enticing drama series THE AMERICANS now airing its second season Wednesdays at 10p/9c. Ronin stars as a sly young KGB officer, "Oleg Burov", with a talent for technology and an obsession with American Culture alongside Kerri Russell and Matthew Rhys as Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings.


Costa was born and grew up on the West Coast of Russia where he discovered his passion for sailing at the young age of five taught by his father and grandfather. His tenacity showed no bounds when at the age of fifteen he began working at a radio station teaching English through music and learning American Culture through the radio waves. After moving to New Zealand with his mother, he studied international relations and political science at his University before relocating to Western Australia. He immersed himself in training in the performing arts which landed him a starring role on the Australian Film Institute Award winning TV series THE CIRCUIT. He continued to expand his theatrical resume with a one-man show entitled THE WALL, and starring roles in TRAITORS, THE VISIT and NOIR. His silver screen debut landed him next to Josh Lucas as "Dzambaski" in Australia's highest grossing film 'RED DOG'.

In his free time, the Los Angeles resident rides his motorcycle on the city streets, practices cross fit and hikes the local trails.
