Brennan Brown Interview
Q: How did you prepare for the role of Robert Childan in The Man in the High Castle?
Brennan Brown: Started with the book and devoured that many times—so the book was the foundation for the character. There’s so much in the book that details Childan’s inner monologues and the way he’s thinking about various situations and the contradictory aspects of him, so that was a really rich source material. I was really lucky to have that to refer to.
Brennan Brown: The book was the starting point, then I actually watched a few antique dealers in New York—kind of went and shadowed them and hung out in their stores for a few days and watched the way that they dealt with customers and basically handled objects and antiques in their stores.
Q: What was it like working with DJ Qualls and Rupert Evans?
Brennan Brown: It was great. We’re really close. We’re very lucky in this show in that we’re so fond of each other, because we’re all in a strange city where none of us are residents except for a few. A few of us are residents, but most of us are ‘out of towners’ shooting in Canada, and there’s not a huge social group up there for us. We’re all really, really tight. It’s an incredible group of people. They’re really sweet, and DJ and Rupert are just a joy to work with.
Q: What was the dynamic like with the directors?
Brennan Brown: There’s a different director for every episode, so that dynamic changes according to which director it is. But all of the directors that were brought in for the show are pretty fantastic. It’s such a big show in terms of its scope, that whoever’s directing an episode has a giant job to do just in terms of the scope of the storytelling and the time that they have to do it in.
Q: Is it difficult to adjust to kind of different scenarios every episode?
Brennan Brown: No. It’s something you get used to doing when you’re working episodic television. I mean, that’s something you just kind of get used to doing, very frequently. (When) a director comes in and gets hired to work on the show, they generally have a good idea of what that show is about, and they want to contribute to it. So they’re very conscious of the overall storytelling of the season.
Q: What were the most intensive scenes for you to film?
Brennan Brown: Intensive? Emotionally or physically? I don’t know. They’re all sort of—it’s funny. Sometimes, a scene, if you watch as an audience member and you think “Oh, it’s just people sitting around a table talking,” that can be the most difficult to shoot; because of the emotional underpinnings of it or just the logistics of shooting it technically. You’ve got to get a huge amount of coverage and lots of different angles, and it takes a lot of time. Every scene is challenging in its own way.
Q: What were some of the most memorable moments working on the set?
Brennan Brown: Don’t know. Let’s see. Well, Joel and I had a scene together, and we just made each other laugh the entire time, so we would giggle desperately while we were rehearsing and then have to pull it together for the scene. I’ve known Joel de la Fuente for a long time, so it’s kind of dangerous when we start working together because we just give each other massive amounts of grief. The aforementioned dinner scene at Paul and Betty Kasoura’s house was a memorable one to work on, just because it was so challenging that way.
Q: What emotional experiences did you draw upon to portray your character?
Brennan Brown: That’s a vast question, you know? Thinking how to answer that. I mean, what I do—Okay, I don’t want to get too actor speaky about it, but if I put myself in the imaginary circumstances of the scene, then hopefully, the emotional reactions….
If I know what my character wants and I’m trying to get that, and I know what the stakes are, then I kind of behave naturally within that scene according to those emotional objectives. Though I’m not really drawing on a past experience, but so much as I’m trying to live fully in the moment. Does that make sense?
Q: Yes, that definitely makes sense.
Brennan Brown: Yeah. I’m not really drawing on anything in particular, like for a specific moment. In terms of just the character’s needs and personalizing, I mean, Childan so desperately wants to belong. He wants to be loved. He wants to be appreciated. He’s stuck in a society. You know, he’s trapped in a conquered society where he’ll never fit in, racially, and it’s interesting.
Q: What do you think about the possibility of simultaneous coexistence of alternate realities within our world, like the fact that one dimension can affect the destiny of another?
Brennan Brown: I think it’s kind of cool. I think it’s a cool idea. Obviously, a lot of theoretical physicists are pretty excited about it in terms of there being a multiverse and also in terms of the multidimensionality. I mean there are multi dimensions. There are definitely more than just the dimensions that we humans can see. When you get into quantum theory, things get really, really bizarre, and I’m always amazed at the idea of interdimensional stuff happening.
Q: For sure. Can you tell us what is next for Bob Childan as he travels to the neutral zone, what will be next?
Brennan Brown: I don’t know—season three is being developed right now, so no I have no idea. They’re just hard at work, and we’ve had lots of meetings with writers and stuff, but it’s a little early to know exact things/specifics.
