“It makes me ex­tremely grate­ful, blessed and hum­ble that I am where I am right now, in my ca­reer and in my life.”

When asked why New York is the per­fect place for a story like this, Ra­suk replies: “New York, in my mind, is the best city in the world! I think the show is not only ap­peal­ing be­cause of the majestical idea that ev­ery­body has about New York. But it helps the show be­cause shoot­ing in New York it­self – the back­ground, the peo­ple, the build­ing, ev­ery­thing else about it, the en­ergy – is a whole dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter, be­sides the char­ac­ters you see in front of the cam­era.

“I feel just be­ing in New York brings a lot more to the show. It has a lot to do with the mixed cul­tures and the dif­fer­ent neigh­bour­hoods and, of course, the peo­ple, too. These are what make New York a cool place.”
