9-1-1’s Oliver Stark is open to romantic relationship between Eddie and Buck

The fans of 9-1-1 have feverishly shipped Buck and Eddie throughout the series’ tenure and they are in good company with the actors themselves.

“I’m open to it. You know, there’s obviously stuff there and there’s a chemistry between us,” Oliver Stark who played the role Evan ‘Buck’ Buckley on the ABC drama, said during Friday episode of Zach Sang Show.


Since the season 1, Stark’s Buck has been firefighting staple. Eddie Diaz, played by Ryan Guzman, joined the station 118 crew the following season, quickly striking up a friendship with Buck. While their fans have always been platonic, many among their fans sense a deeper connection.

Recently, during season 7 on show, Buck came out after having his first same- sex kiss with LAFD helicopter Tommy, played by Lou Ferrigno Jr. While Buck and Tommy’s romance is being played on the show, Stark was asked the potential of romance between Buck and Eddie in the future.

While admitting that he definitely sees a potential story there, he stated, “I don’t know what’s going to happen with Eddie’s character. But then I also think you have to tread carefully because I don’t want to tell this story where [a] guy comes out and now all his males friends” think he got a crush on them.
