This year, Brandon Spink joined the cast of Series 2 of Berlin Station in the recurring role of Noah Kirsch, with the most recent episode airing in America earlier this month. Previous roles for Brandon include Peter in the 2016 feature film Mother’s Day, which saw him work alongside his on-screen mother Jennifer Aniston, and Young Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We talked to Brandon about playing Noah Kirsch in Berlin Station, working with an all-star cast in Mother’s Day and his acting career so far.
Can you tell us about your character Noah Kirsch in Berlin Station?
I play Noah Kirsch, son of Robert Kirsch, AKA Leland Orser, my parents are divorced, and I have come to live with my father in Berlin, Germany. I am not sure exactly what my father does. I think he works for Office of Regional Affairs, but I soon find out something different!
You played Peter, the son of Jennifer Aniston’s character, in Mother’s Day, how did you get the role?
I taped my audition, my manager sent the tape to casting, and then I had a callback with the late Garry Marshall, which was truly amazing! I found out a week later that I booked the role.
What was it like acting alongside an all-star cast?
Awesome; working with them has taught me so many things to help improve my craft as an actor.
Had you watched any Batman movies before appearing as Young Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
Yes, I have seen them ALL!
How different do you find filming TV shows to movies?
Movies, I have the script before filming so I know how the story ends. With TV, you learn the story as you go, which can change each week.
What would you say has been the most fun role you’ve played?
I have enjoyed all my roles, but recently to play a recurring role as Noah Kirsch on the series Berlin Station was so great! To be a part of a series and work on such a cool project was pretty amazing! Of course, playing Young Bruce Wayne was a dream come true, being that he was my favourite superhero.
We understand you’ve previously performed in theatre, would you like to do more theatre work?
Since that is where I started, I would not mind having the opportunity again.
What instruments can you play, and would you consider going into musical roles?
I can play guitar a little. I started taking lessons for my role in Mother’s Day.
When did you know you wanted to get into acting?
After having the opportunity to perform on the stage for the production of Peter Pan, I knew then I had a passion for it!
Do you have a favourite part about being an actor?
I love that I have the opportunity to play so many different characters, and to work with so many talented actors!
Can you see yourself continuing acting as your future full-time career?
Yes, I love acting, and look forward to all the opportunities that I may have in the future.
Do you have any projects coming up soon?
Now that I am back from Berlin; just auditioning again and looking forward to a busy 2018.
