Party of Five: Brandon Larracuente

Brandon Larracuente plays the oldest kid, Emilio Acosta, in Freeform’s Party of Five reboot. Just like Matthew Fox’s Charlie Salinger into the initial, Emilio has got to place their life on hold to improve their siblings. Only this time around, the Acosta moms and dads performedn’t perish. They got deported back into Mexico.

Emilio had been an aspiring musician when their household crisis occurred. He won’t have actually enough time to try out gigs as he needs to operate your family restaurant, but he’s not dangling up their electric guitar once and for all. Larracuente spoke with Showbiz Cheat Sheet about his character’s musical talents, and just how he’s getting ready to show all of them. Party of Five airs Wednesdays on Freeform. 

Music currently split the Acostas before ‘Party of Five’ started

There’s songs when you look at the reputation for Party of Five. The Bodeans sang the first motif track “Closer to Free” and Shawn Mullins’ “Lullaby” became linked to the initial show in television recreations. When the reboot starts, songs has recently made Emilio kind of a loner.

“He’s the eldest out of the five siblings and he has dreams and aspirations to be a musician,” Brandon Larracuente stated. “This is something he’s been pursuing for quite some time. He’s trying his best to separate from his parents as much as possible because he doesn’t feel like his father fully supports him and his dreams of being a musician.”

Brandon Larracuente will need to understand how to play guitar

The first couple of attacks of Party of Time don’t show Emilio playing guitar or performing. However, Brandon Larracuente verified he has got to simply take songs classes for future attacks.

“I think audiences will be delighted to see that yes, music is a huge component of the entire show,” Larracuente stated. “I did have to dust off the old guitar there and I took some lessons, vocal lessons and some guitar lessons. Yes, throughout the season, audiences will be surprised to see Emilio does pick up the guitar every now and then.”

Brandon Larracuente had some music abilities before ‘Party of Five’

When Brandon Larracuente said “dust off the old guitar,” he implied which he currently had one before Party of Five. Indeed he performed.

“My mom actually bought me a guitar years ago and I dabbled a bit but never on a consistent basis,” Larracuente stated. “Coincidentally, I decided to pick up the guitar about a month or two again prior to even knowing about the audition and then when the audition came in and they said that he was a musician, I went, ‘Oh great, wow. How convenient for me.’”

Emilio Acosta should be a significantly better musician than Brandon Larracuente, so he dove into lessons.

“It definitely helped that I had kind of a history in playing,” Larracuente stated. “I had to become a lot more adequate in how to play as the series went on because this character is a musician and music in the show is a huge component. So I had to just dust off the old guitar and build my childhood back up which took a while but luckily I had really good teachers.”
