9-1-1: Lone Star – Brian Michael Smith comments for Paul


Emotions took over Fox’s last episode of 9-1-1: Lone Star, released this Monday (22). In it, viewers followed the reunion of Paul Strickland (Brian Michael Smith) with important members of his family.

Although it is the first time that the public has met the character’s mother (played by Cleo King) and also his sister Naomi (Regina Hoyles), there is a very good rapport between all of them. According to Brian Michael Smith, there was a very strong connection between the three from the first day of filming.

“It reminded me of my own family at home,” he revealed in a recent interview with the TV Line website. “This series always brings very wonderful people to make appearances and both [the actresses] were open for this work”, he added, saying that the atmosphere behind the scenes was very relaxed.

“For a large part of the episode, we dealt with our family’s history. We ended up joking that we were filming our own spin-off: Strictly Stricklands ”, he commented.

Paul and Naomi reunion shows the dramatic strength of 9-1-1: Lone Star

After many years, there is an exciting reunion between brothers seen in episode 2×6, entitled “Everyone and Their Brother”. The withdrawal was due to several hidden feelings and dialogues that never happened.

On this topic, Brian Michael Smith argues that he can understand what would have happened internally between the characters. “One of the most difficult things to deal with is when you are not accepted by the people you expect to be accepted,” he said, commenting that he has known many cases of transgender people who have also gone through this.

The actor also said during the interview that many things present in the dialogues between Paul and Naomi came from conversations he had with the series’ creative team.

“A good number of the brothers find it difficult to accept when someone makes the transition. They feel that they are losing someone, but what they are really losing is their idea of ​​that person ”, he explained, stressing the importance of addressing the theme in the series.
