“The sci-fi aspect and the supernatural powers that are endowed to this character, are just really, really fun,” he shared. “You’ve got the fun, dramatic aspects, but then anything could happen, and the action sequences are really cool.”
Burkely adds of filming the sequences: “There were many days where it was me on a giant green screen studio, where you have a bit of dirt on the ground and a whole bunch of green and the directors are shouting things that are happening around you…you get to work really collaboratively with directors and writers to be able to create something that really isn’t there to begin with.”
With a second season coming, Burkely is excited for more: “I am excited to see where Adam [the director of Beyond] take these characters. The first season was so amazing to lay these ground rules and entire world out for the audience to live and breathe and understand where they live and what goes on. I think that as we explore the rest of the seasons I can only imagine that things are going to get more interesting and gritty.”
Beyond airs Mondays @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform, or hop on the Freeform APP to watch the entire first season now!
