MONEY HEIST latest season was left on another major cliffhanger. Many fans want to understand about actor Pedro Alonso who plays the mysterious Berlin.
Fans of Money Heist had been eagerly expecting the fourth series to arrive after the dramatic finale in season three. Thankfully, the show returned earlier on Netflix and it’s not disappointed. So could there be a spin-off show starring the narcissistic Berlin (played by Pedro Alonso)? Here’s everything we all know so far about the series’ future and the actor who plays the character.
Who plays Berlin in Money Heist?
WARNING: this text contains spoilers from Money Heist season 4.
Berlin is one among the most controversial members of the team in Money Heist and one among the first masterminds.
Not only was he second-in-command, he was The Professor’s (Álvaro Morte) brother.
Berlin is portrayed by Spanish actor Pedro Alonso who has appeared during a plethera of films and tv shows over the years in Spain.
His credits include The Ministry of your time , Hospital Real, Diablo Guardian last year’s The Silent of the March.
But his time on Money Heist came to a dramatic and emotional end.
Will Money Heist’s Berlin have his own spin-off show?
Last year, show creator Alex Pina opened to Oprah Magazine about the show’s future and the possibility of any spin-off shows.
He said: “We do have many possibilities for a few spin-offs, yes, and that i think that’s because of the strong and powerful identities of the characters.
“We’ve always searched for characters to possess a really complex, layered design.
“So i feel almost every character of Money Heist features a duality that we might wish to see during a spin-off.
“We could watch any of them in other contexts.”
Pina then went into more detail a few show supported team member Berlin having a series.
He continued: “Berlin’s (Pedro Alonso) case for his own show is extremely clear.
“He’s a misogynist, a psychopath, egocentric, a narcissist, a delinquent, a rapist.
“But still there are many people that adore him, because he values friendship, loyalty or fraternity.”
So despite his major flaws, Pina could see potential in another show entirely dedicated to Berlin.
There has been no confirmation if there’s getting to be a Berlin spin-off show so far but with the growing popularity of Money Heist, this might be a pipeline project.
But there have been initially talks of removing Berlin from the series altogether.
In a recent documentary called Money Heist: The Phenomenon, creator Álex Pina spoke about getting obviate Berlin.
He said: “Someone said to me, ‘This character doesn’t fit with the days . you ought to take him out of the series.’
“I said I had no intention of taking him out of the series.
“He’s a misogynist, narcissist and psychopath in some ways .
“But we could have a personality like that within the series and therefore the audience could freely decide whose side they’re on, right?
“If television is bland it’s boring because less things happen.
“The audience wants things to happen, and there’s nothing better than a villain who we will empathise with.”
Money Heist season 4 is out on Netflix.
