FUN FACTS ABOUT BRIAN KRAUSE


Brian Krause has been a household name since he played the role of Leo on Charmed. Since then, he has charmed us with every role he has taken on and always leaves us wanting more.


 He is now in the new Lifetime movie Expecting Amish, and to celebrate, TVGrapevine has a special interview with him, where we discuss his career, life and what's next. Below are some of the highlights from our chat.


THE BEGINNING.: Brian took acting classes in college, but majored in sports medicine and played soccer. However, he decided to go into acting and booked Return Of The Blue Lagoon, which helped launch his career. 


In addition to acting, he has also tried his hand at writing, producing and directing. He adds that he loves the business and hopes to be a part of it for the rest of his life.



EXPECTING AMISH: Brian plays the father of Hannah, an Amish girl who is on Rumaspringa. He is a widower and a father of three and has a hard time letting his little girl go, especially when he is torn between allowing her to be happy and staying with his faith. 


 {sidebar id=8}Although he was only brought into the role a few days before filming began, Brian tried to do as much research as possible to prepare for the role. He watched documentaries, read articles and even checked out some of the Amish reality shows to get a feel and idea of how they project their religion and lifestyle. He says he has a lot of respect for how they protect what they have and how they choose to live their lives. 


A CHARMED LIFE: Brian is best known for his role as Leo on Charmed. He says that because the show is in syndication, people are recognizing him more than ever. He loves going to Comic Cons and Wizard Worlds because it makes him feel good when people remember him and realize how many fans he has due to his portrayal to Leo.



He adds that he had a fantastic time being on the show and says that he loved working with the entire cast. 




WHAT'S NEXT: Now that Expecting Amish is set to air, Brian has some other projects on the horizon. He just finished wrapping a movie called Within The Dark, which deals with sleep paralysis and things that go bump in the night, a Christmas movie called Christmas Gamble, which is holiday version of Freaky Friday. 



In addition, he is in the process of writing the second draft of a psychological thriller that he describes as Jaws meets Seven. 



ON HIS DVR: So what is Brian currently watching? He is obsessed with the Investigative Discovery Channel, historical documentaries and is watching Breaking Bad for the third time. He also is a fan of 48 Hours and even has an app on his phone that allows him to watch on the go. 


Thank you to Brian and his team for this interview and be sure to check out Expecting Amish on Lifetime.
