Played by Pedro Alonso, the Professor’s defiant second-in-command ‘hypnotised’ fans with his patronizing finesse.
Nice guys finish last, a good thing that Berlin is far from ‘nice’. The popular Money Heist character had become one of the most beloved characters of the hit Netflix Spanish language crime drama with his cold and calculating shrewdness, which ultimately gave way to his heart of gold (spoiler alert) as he sacrificed himself for his teammates in the season two finale.
Pedro Alonso’s in-depth portrayal of the multi-layered character, who also made appearances in the seasons following his death through flashbacks, made him a household name across the globe. The Spanish actor recently indulged in answering some of the very creative fan theories, giving his take on the same, with his delightful ‘Berlin’ style, in a video uploaded by Netflix.
Fans of the show had some bizarre to well-founded theories and queries, and Alonso did not hold himself back while responding to them. As per the video Berlin responds to Indian fan theories, one of the claims was that Berlin is not actually dead to which he quips that the fan ought to tread carefully because ‘one has to eat one’s words later’.
On the critically acclaimed Netflix series, titled La Casa de Papel in Spanish, Berlin is a part of skilled robbers who plan two well-formulated heists, concocted from the mind of the brilliant Professor. Alonso’s character serves as the Professor's right hand and brother, suffering from a terminal illness that gnaws away at him. The morally grey Berlin appears as a cunning and disturbing man, answering to only his own set of morals with his superiority complex leading him to clash even with his brother at times.
The fifth and final season of Money Heist dropped today at noon and is available to stream on Netflix.
