We talk to the actor behind the Netflix show’s most mysterious superhero, and what lies in wait for a potential season 2.
Welcome back to More of a Comment, Really…, a weekly interview show hosted by Clint Worthington! Every episode will feature interviews with actors, filmmakers, producers, and more, giving you the skinny on the latest films and TV.
Being a superhero is never easy, but it’s doubly difficult when you’re dead. Such is the fate of Ben
However, the pressures of their powers and the emotional distance from their father led to no small number of dysfunction – including Ben’s untimely (and, for the audience at least, unexplained) death by the time the series begins. But thanks to his brother (and medium) Klaus (Robert Sheehan), we get to see Min’s Ben tag along with the ragtag group of misfit heroes, a warm counterpoint to Klaus’ drugged-out quirks and a stark reminder of the many ways this family has let each other down.
It’s a role that comes with its fair share of challenges, and Min was kind enough to sit down for a quick interview to talk about playing a dead guy who can only interact with one other person on set, the mysteries behind his character’s untimely end, and what he’d like to see out of Ben if Umbrella Academy goes to a second season.
