Aaron Stanford’s Birkhoff has had one of the most interesting character arcs of the entire series. His ascent from background player to loveable fan favorite essentially culminated in season three, where Birkhoff took everything to the next level by becoming someone pretty much instrumental to the success of every mission Division took on – and not just from behind a computer screen.
“I was hoping they would get there [with the action stuff] but as the computer geek, I spend almost all my time in front of a monitor…so any time I’m able to get out and get my hands on a gun has been a lot of fun,” the actor shared at Comic Con.
While fighting in the season finale and the destruction of Division were personal highlights for Stanford, he admits he can’t wait to see what’s in store for the final six episodes – which includes the unveiling of a long awaited Birkhoff origin story.
“I can’t wait to see where it goes,” he says excitedly. “I think it’s gonna be great, and although a lot of people were let down about the truncated season, I think it’s an opportunity to tell a really tight story.”
