Branko Tomovic: “the best is yet to come” for Belcheck

You’ve had some great scenes – from breaking Jack and Chloe out of the CIA to confronting Adrian Cross. When we last saw Belcheck, Jack was telling him to wait by the phone, so I take it we haven’t seen the last of him?
The escape in the opening episode was really cool, that was my very first day. I suddenly found myself standing on top of that van, holding this rocket propelled grenade launcher in my hands and blowing things up. But the best is yet to come! That’s all I can say though…

You have great on-screen chemistry with both Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub. What is it like working with those two actors?
When you are on set you have Jack Bauer in front of you… Kiefer is one of the greatest. He is so focused, precise, intelligent, generous and prepared. I have learnt so much from him. That loyalty that Belcheck has towards Jack probably comes a lot from myself, as Kiefer is also such a wonderful person so I find that very easy to play. I kind of saw Belcheck always like his watchdog, his doberman even. I am actually very lucky to be a bad guy but on the good side. If I’d been an enemy of Jack, I’d probably be dead already. I love the ‘new’ Chloe, her darker character now. Chloe and Belcheck have probably a lot in common. Mary Lynn is fantastic, she is wonderful to work with as well and great fun. She is really funny, she did some gigs in London’s underground comedy clubs after shooting.

Cool, really looking forward to seeing this. I was really intrigued by his character! The close-ups in episode 6 when he was on the roof were pretty intense, he could kill with his eyes haha

Belcheck is an excellent, interesting and mysterious new 24 character and I’m really excited to see what’s in store for him in the final five episodes of the season. He has had so very little screen time and so very little dialogue so far this season. He has been so very underused so far this season.

Sexyyyy, mysterious and touching at the same time. Can’t wait to see more! A great actor that makes impressions without many words. More, please!!!

“Belcheck, one word, like Madonna”…one of the best 24 lines!!!
