One would expect a non-English show to have a limited audience, but it is truly encouraging when shows like Money Heist break records and create the kind of numbers it has. It has gone to show how much the world has evolved and that audiences are just looking for good content, no matter what language it is in. With three successful seasons out and a fourth season in the making, we took a look at some of our favorite characters from the show that managed to make heroes out of robbers.
1. The Professor
Money Heist would not exist if not for the ever elusive Professor, both for the other robbers as well as for us as an audience. From the very first season, he is enveloped by an air of mystery and we cannot tell what his next step is going to be. His master plan is always a few steps ahead of the police and he manages to make the impossible possible every single time. One of the most interesting tracks in the show is him as a criminal mastermind and on the other hand, him as a devoted lover. This is truly fascinating writing.
One of the most fascinating robbers, Tokyo is also the narrator of the show for the most part. With a violent past, she is truly tough to predict. With a razor sharp bent of mind, she is crucial to the heists conducted by the gang. She is also a tough personality, seemingly heartless, but we also see moments of vulnerability, specially around her love interest, Rio. The most striking part about Tokyo is her magnetic presence and her unpredictability.
For most of the duration of the first two seasons, you absolutely detest Berlin. As leader of the gang, he is mostly met with hatred. Too cunning for his own good, it always seems like Berlin is going to betray the rest of the gang. He is shrewd, emotionless and absolutely ruthless. However, soon enough, you feel a change of heart and while he may be rough around the edges, you realize that Berlin has a heart of gold and is actually always looking out for his team.
