“Oleg Igorevich Burov,” played by Costa Ronin, has relocated back to Moscow, where the KGB enlists him into a crackdown on the rampant corruption in the Soviet food trade. Once again living at home, Oleg must re-acclimate himself to his roots and to his country. With a high-level government minister for a father, he has more security and clout than his co-workers within the KGB -- but will that be enough to protect him as both the KGB and the CIA begin to dig up his past?
In 2014, Ronin had the pleasure of working with Academy Award® winning actress Halle Berry in the CBS sci-fi thriller Extant in addition to a guest star role on ABC’s Marvel’s Agent Carter. In 2015, Ronin filmed an episode of Scorpion for CBS, The Player for NBC and Agent X for TNT working opposite Sharon Stone. During his hiatus in 2016, Ronin shot roles on The Strain (FX), Shooter (USA) and Gotham (FOX) as well as the indie feature Brighton Beach, directed by David Gutnik and produced by Molly Connors (Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)) out in 2017.
Born and raised on the West Coast of Russia, Ronin developed a passion for sailing at the age of five, a hobby he shared with his father and grandfather. He began exploring his love of the arts and performing at 15 when he began working at a local radio station teaching English to his listeners through music while absorbing American culture through the international radio waves. A move to New Zealand changed his focus a bit as he entered the local university to study International Relations and Political Science.
Not giving up on his artistic aspirations, he immersed himself in the performing arts, training and earning notable roles in a number of local Australian productions. 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 breakout on-screen role came with the award winning TV series The Circuit, followed by his feature debut opposite Josh Lucas in Red Dog, Australia’s highest grossing film.
In his free time, the Los Angeles resident rides his motorcycle on the city streets and loves to sail and travel the world.
