Recently, Elgin James, co-creator of Mayans MC, discussed his route to working on that television show alongside Kurt Sutter. Now, in an interview with Collider, cast member JD Pardo, who plays Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes in the spin-off to Sons of Anarchy, has also had the chance to discuss various aspects of Mayans MC.
Here is what JD Pardo said when it came to the responsibility he has with being the leading man in this TV show:
“It is a responsibility. I remember this one time when I was on Revolution, and we were shooting the pilot and I was riding in the van with Jon Favreau. I’ll never forget it, but he really took me under his wing and taught me a little bit about the camera and performance and who to study.”
“He talked about being number one on the call sheet, or just the lead, and he said, ‘It’s not just your acting that puts you there. It’s also how you treat the crew, how you treat your cast, and how you treat everybody.’”
“You have a responsibility to breathe life into people. So, I love that part of it because I love people and I love the cast. As an actor, this is obviously a dream come true.”
“It’s so hard already to make a career out of this, but to be put in the position where you’re getting publicity and people are learning about you, and they’re able to see your work at a higher level, you get more opportunities from it. In that sense, it’s amazing. But you also find, more and more, that you still need time for yourself.”
