A repost for Remembrance Day

There are over 500 speaking parts in HBO’s mammoth war drama Band of Brothers. The series was shot in England, so it should come as no surprise that a lot of young British and Irish actors were in the cast. Michael Fassbender was in almost every episode as Christenson. Fassbender is fluent in German; he must have wondered why they cast him to play someone who couldn’t speak a word of it.
