Production is officially underway for La Casa De Papel (a.k.a. Money Heist) spin-off series, Berlín, with actor Pedro Alonso back the title role. Cameras began rolling in Paris following a press conference a week ago with creators Esther Martínez Lobato and Álex Pina on hand with the cast:
“Berin’s character has the most sparkling personality to place it in another universe. We loved the idea of introducing a new gang around Berlin in a completely different emotional state.”
Plot details are unknown, while
Alonso, whose character recurred throughout all five seasons of La Casa De Papel, was also present last week to share a glimpse of what’s to come, reciting an opening line of dialogue from the first episode:
“There are only ten things that can turn a terrible day into a wonderful one. The first is love. And the truth, that wasn’t the case. My third wife had just left me…The second is a spoil of more than ten million euros. But it wasn’t the case either. We were going to steal the link to a much bigger heist, today’s was easy. But if you have a bad day, you can end up bringing a miserable man to his knees and aiming for his head.”
Alonso’s latest titular character is written by David Oliva, David Berrocal, Esther Martínez Lobato and Álex Pina and will be directed by Albert Pintó (Sky Rojo, Malasaña 32), David Barrocal (Sky Rojo, La casa de papel) and Geoffrey Cowper (Day Release). Netflix also unveiled casting and character details which you can read below, along with a character intro just beneath!
Pedro Alonso (La casa de papel) returns to the role of the hedonistic and clever Berlin. Alongside him, his new gang: Michelle Jenner (Isabel) plays Keila, an eminence in electronic engineering; Tristán Ulloa (Fariña) goes into the skin of Damián, a philanthropic professor and Berlin’s confidant; Begoña Vargas (Welcome to Eden) plays Cameron, a kamikaze who always lives on the edge; Julio Peña Fernández (Through My Window) brings to life Roi, Berlin’s faithful squire; and Joel Sánchez plays Bruce, the relentless man of action in the gang.
