Are You Sliding In? Sarunas Jackson Says “My DMs Have Never Been Flooded Like This Before”
Eye candy comes and goes on Insecure, but one bae that doesn’t appear to be going bye-bye anytime soon is the character Dro, played by Sarunas Jackson.
At 6’8″ with a deep baritone voice and all the makings of a light-skinned lover’s paradise, many viewers can see how Molly fell for her best friend-turned-booty-call who may or may not be in an open marriage. And it appears there are many women off screen who’d be down to take that chance with the actor who’s been in an open relationship in real life as well.
In an interview with Coveteur, Sarunas talked about the Sunday his first sex scene with Molly aired on the hit HBO show, saying, “That week was just crazy. My phone was blowing up. And you know, my DMs have never been flooded like this before [laughs]. It’s been overwhelming, but in a good way.”
More than getting extra attention from the ladies, Sarunas is grateful for landing the part of Dro because it’s a a deviation from the stereotypical roles he’s been offered in the past.
“I got a little emotional because it wasn’t a basketball role or something that had to do with being a thug,” he said of being cast. “I was given an opportunity with a network I’ve always wanted to be on. That was on my to-do list, HBO, because I watched Sopranos with my dad when I was a kid. So [getting the part] was one of the happiest moments in my career.”
With the fanfare surrounding him right now, we’re sure there will be many more to come.
