Brandon Larracuente Bio, Wiki, Ethnicity
Brandon Larracuente was born in Pleasantville, NY, USA on 16 November 1994. He’s a Puerto Rican family. At the age of 4, he was introduced to the world of theatre when he was asked to be a part of two operas at the New Rochelle Opera House. Nevertheless, his acting career started at the age of 8, when he starred in an Off-Broadway show called Desire. When his family moved to Florida, Brandon played a role in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and at the Orlando Repertory Theatre in It’s a wonderful life.
He has had several feature film credits including 2017’s Baywatch and 2016’s Max Steel. But Brandon first swung to fame for his role in the Netflix series Bloodline. He portrays Ben Rayburn, the son of Kyle Chandler and Jacinda Barett’s characters John and Diana Rayburn in the show.
Subsequently, he bagged the role of Jeff Atkins on another Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. While Brandon had auditioned for Zach Dempsey’s character in the 13 Reasons Why he got selected for Jeff Atkins instead. In the end, the role got huge popularity among fans.
Within three weeks after its debut, the show quickly became Netflix’s most popular on social media. For the most part, one thing a lot of fans have come to agree on is this: #JeffDeservedBetter. In the series, a star baseball player who needed more than a little help with his English homework, Jeff Atkins pushes his tutor Clay Jensen to take risks in life, especially where Hannah Baker is involved. Notably, he knows Clay likes Hannah and coaxes his friend out of his shell as much as he can.
However, a painful reality sets in at episode 10 when Jeff died before the school year started. His death was a result of a car accident that was ruled as a drinking-and-driving episode. His death affects a lot of the kids at Liberty High, especially Hannah and Sherri, who knocked over the stop sign at the intersection which would become the site of the car crash.
Clay is also affected as he didn’t realize how close he and Jeff were until it was too late.
After his on-screen death, Brandon took to Instagram to share a throwback photo from behind the scenes of the show’s production, shedding light on one of the series’ most sensitive moments. He prompted fans to continue their campaign that his character, Jeff Atkins, deserves justice after his untimely death.
Consequently, fans immediately started responding through the comment section that Jeff deserved better and that they wish the character had been kept around for longer. Apparently, we just have to wait and see if the writers end up re-visiting Jeff’s storyline and possibly bring him back. From his performance in the 13 Reasons Why, Brandon has been a new crush to most of his fans. His great acting prowess is really something to write home about.
