Hi Brandon! Congratulations on your new role on season 2 of Berlin Station! What is your favorite part about being an actor on the show?
Thank you! My favorite part was working with such great actors. Acting alongside Leland Orser, Richard Jenkins, and Ashley Judd was pretty amazing. The show also has a great storyline, and I love spy thrillers so it was really fun to be in one.
You were in one of my all time favorite shows, Once Upon a Time. What was it like playing Baelfire?
I loved playing Baelfire because it was a challenging role. Baelfire’s relationship with his father is so different than my relationship with my real father, so I had to develop certain emotions in order to bring the character to life.
What role does social media play in your acting career?
It plays a large role, but I have to limit it as well. It can take over!
How do you manage school and filming?
I am lucky enough to go to a school that works with my schedule. I have access to all my assignments online when I’m filming. The teachers at my school are great because they send me all the information when I am out.
What is one weird thing about yourself?
I talk to myself when preparing for a role.
If you could go back in time, what movie would you want to play in?
The original Star Wars movie! I am such huge fan.
Who has been your favorite actor to work with?
OMG so many! Working with Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Aniston, and Robert Carlyle was amazing. Leland Orser was great to work with, too. He really took me under his wing and gave great advice not only about acting but also about life lessons.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Play baseball and video games.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I would love to continue to be in a TV series or be the lead in a superhero movie.
