As he starts a new fitness regimen, EastEnders great Rob Kazinsky has talked openly about his weight and mental health.
The actor, 39, published his fitness plan on Instagram. He is best known for playing Sean Slater in the BBC One serial opera.
Rob informed his fans that he is concentrating on becoming healthier for a new acting job while uploading some topless images.
Over the upcoming months, you’re going to see a lot more activity, and it’s the type of activity and vanity I vehemently abhor. He said, “Fitness S**t.”
Rob remarked, speaking candidly about his mental health, “I’m going to try to prevent self defeating embarrassment and general autistic self destruction as much as possible and not die of shame.”
“This is day one, where I’m starting. I am 220 pounds and 19.7% body fat. I’m turning 40 in a few months, and one thing I’ve discovered is that training and recovering are growing tougher and harder every single day; I can’t function the way I did in my 20s, so what’s the plan?
The actor continued by announcing his intention to prepare for a new gig by getting into “superhero form.”
In order to prepare for a fantastic job that may become available once the strikes stop, he said, “I have a terrific job coming up and I’ve chosen to get into superhero condition, without drugs, without PEDs, without help, just a 40-year-old big b*d making do with what I still have going for me.”
We shall thus begin here while I sort this out. And we will do check-ups and updates; maybe, I will be able to explain its purpose to you shortly.
Rob has always been forthright and honest about his problems with mental illness. Several years ago, he explained why Sean Slater’s mental health storyline was so crucial to him during his week-long comeback to EastEnders:
I have battled depression throughout my life; 40% of individuals will receive a mental health diagnosis at some point in their lives, and that just includes those who really seek care. According to Rob, a person’s mental health has an impact on both them and others around them.
“We don’t discuss it.” In the UK, 27 males commit suicide every day, with many of them being under 35. The second leading cause of death in America is suicide; this is a pandemic. We are frightened to discuss it.
Kate [Oates] and I discussed it. I wanted to talk about it, and EastEnders has always been a place where you can do that because it is morally right.
