Ruth Christianson

Producer & Production Asst

How did you get into the industry?

I got into the industry originally by way of theatre. I was a performer professionally since I was young, before switching over to the agency side. I worked in town first as an actor, then agent and also did some casting work, before becoming a franchised talent agent in NYC for B'way/TV/Film. I had met some wonderful people in our local photo industry during my time here on set in my early twenties and when I moved back home after my time in New York, I thankfully reunited with some wonderful faces.

What inspires you?

My spouse, passionately dedicating every single day to change the future for our youth through education, an often exhausting and thankless job, with grace and aplomb.

What is your hometown?

Alexandria, MN

Favorite restaurant?

The Monte Carlo - (the wings!)

What do you like to do on the weekends?

I love to get outside as much as possible, head to the lake, explore our state parks, or get in a nice deep clean of my house!

What is your favorite band or type of music?

Definitely 90's R&B or 60s Soul

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

If you don't ask, you can't get. - Barbra Streisand

What book, movie read/seen recently you would recommend and why?

Currently obsessed with The Gilded Age, the HBO show, so many great Broadway actors in it, and the time period in general. Along with Anderson Cooper's great books Vanderbilt and Astor and about a hundred PBS documentaries on the period. It's a fascinating, troublesome, and formative era for our country and so many of the institutional and socio-economic landscapes we are a part of today. I think really studying history helps us develop a greater understanding of the world and ourselves.

Are you a traveler or a homebody? Why?

I love traveling, the new people, food, views, always open up my mind and heart. Really reminds me we are all connected and searching for joy on this big, beautiful, planet together.
