Before becoming an actor, Rus spent eighteen years in Brazil teaching English. On a trip back to London in 2004 he saw David Mamet’s Oleanna with Aaron Eckhart and Julia Stiles at the Garrick Theatre. From that moment his mind was made up to become an actor himself.
Rus is a self-proclaimed geek and lover of superhero movies. Right now, The Walking Dead, Killing Eve, Stranger Things and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are among some of his top TV shows. Favourite food: Pancakes!
