Maridueña & Bertrand Spoke About Working Alongside Their ‘Cobra Kai’ Co-Stars in August 2021
During an August 2021 live stream, alongside their “Cobra Kai” co-stars William “Billy” Zabka and Peyton List, Maridueña and Bertrand answered a fan question which read “what’s the best part about working” with the show’s cast. Maridueña explained that he enjoyed he regularly films with only a handful of his co-stars, as “Cobra Kai” is an ensemble cast. He explained because he is not involved with many scenes, “seeing it all come together at the end it’s almost like watching the show for the first time.”
Bertrand also shared that he usually does not have scenes with quite a few of his castmates.
“We don’t always get to film with everyone, you know, I rarely get to film with Mary [Mouser] or Tanner [Buchanan] or Peyton sometimes and I like that we hang out a lot off set and that we’re all really tight even when we’re not filming and then the times that we do get to film with each other randomly and like the school fight where everyone’s there and actually be together and hang out,” said the 21-year-old actor.
