Spoiler alert: The following article contains spoilers for Seasons 1 and 2 of Sweet Magnolias.
There’s something so special and thought-provoking about Netflix's new romantic series Sweet Magnolias. It stars Joanna Garcia Swisher in the leading role of Maddie, a woman who relies on her best friend to lift her up through the many struggles she’s facing in her relationships, family life, and career.
There has been quite a bit of drama revolving around the character of Noreen since she’s played by Jamie Lynn Spears, and petitions have been created to get her removed from the cast, thanks to the scrutiny she's receiving over Britney Spears’ former conservatorship. Right now though, the big question on the minds of fans is regarding who plays Ronnie on the show. Here’s what you should know about the newest Sweet Magnolias actor, Brandon Quinn.
Who plays Ronnie in 'Sweet Magnolias'?
The actor behind the role of Ronnie on Sweet Magnolias is named Brandon Quinn. The character of Ronnie was first introduced to viewers in Season 1 of the show but is now a much bigger deal in Season 2. Ronnie is Annie’s father who has an extremely complex relationship with Annie’s mother, Dana Sue.
Ronnie and Dana Sue broke up several years ago, but when Dana Sue reached out to him during the Season 1 finale seeking a little bit of help, he responded positively. Dana Sue revealed she needed help raising their daughter Annie and managing the family restaurant. Ronnie realized the right thing to do would be to return home and make himself useful.
