Xolo Maridueña In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast

    • TV & Film

Xolo Maridueña is right on the edge of superstardom. The fifth season of his massively popular “Karate Kid” sequel series, “Cobra Kai,” crane-kicks its way on to Netflix on September 9th; after that, the young actor sets his sights on the debut of “Blue Beetle,” the DC Comics superhero movie that marks a massive leap forward in his career. All in all, you’d forgive him for being pretty excited—but Maridueña is taking this one step at a time.

“There's always got to be room to grow,” he says. “You have to be constantly expanding. I hope this is just the beginning.”

On this episode of In the Envelope: The Actor’s Podcast, Maridueña takes us inside the trajectory of a rising star, to the bittersweetness of “Cobra Kai” season 5 to the invaluable lessons learned from leading his own DC Comics movie.
