Berlin is one of the most iconic characters in the Money Heist series, while he died in season two, the producers didn’t eschew to bring him back at multiple occasions throughout the series.
According to actor Pedro Alonso a.k.a Berlin, the fifth and final season of Money Heist will be a “war movie but within four walls.” The Spanish star who is taking part in the hit show also spoke about how he is taking the season finale on a personal level.
Here’s what we noted actor Pedro Alonso (Berlin) speak about life without Berlin post the season finale.
Pedro couldn’t stop being happy and proud to be part of a show which went on to become “spectacular” at a global level. “I try to be clinical about it when projects come to an end. I leave it behind. But it is true that some big things have happened. And somehow, I feel like a door has opened, or at least it has opened a little, which, beyond any personal considerations, has given visibility to a type of work that was being done here for the world. And if we make a small contribution in that sense, I think it is spectacular,” stated Pedro Alonso.
The Spanish artist, Pedro Alonso, played the character of Berlin, the elder brother of Sergio Marquina also known as ‘The Professor’, and the second-in-command of the robbery at the Royal Mint of Spain. In the series he is portrayed as a charming sociopath and a male chauvinist, despite his squabbles with his team members, he always has a way to lead them.
In the process it is revealed that Berlin is terminally ill, and he ends up sacrificing his life so that his team members can successfully escape the ill-fated Royal Mint of Spain at the end of season two.
Pedro also added how being part of the show from its inception, he’s seen it grow not just in terms of popularity, but also in its production scale. “I’m a guy who started shooting series at a time when you could kick a screen and ruin an entire set. And I still think it’s amazing now when I see these kinds of sets and artifacts,” Pedro claimed.
While in the present plot, Berlin is not actively involved in the action inside the Bank of Spain, the ongoing robbery has always been his original plan. Pedro revealed that what we are going to see in the season finale “is rock’n’roll, because from what I’ve seen, you’re making a war movie but within four walls. It’s not an action sequence, it’s an epic war film.”
Just a note: Money Heist 5 will be a two-part and ten-episode season. Its first part will premiere on Netflix on September 3 and its second part will premiere on December 3.
