Daphne, Alabama (WKRGMore) – He has made a name for himself in the world of acting at just seven years old.
Blake Brown of WKRG News 5 asked, “Did you ever think this could happen at your age?” “No,” EJ Sanchez replied.
After modeling for several years, Sanchez added acting to her resume last September when she auditioned for a Netflix series, not knowing at the time that she would be joining one of her favorite shows.
“I was excited and very happy,” he explained.
“We didn’t really know what we were auditioning for until we got word that he got the part. We were in Atlanta the next day, so it was a big surprise, but a good one.” ‘ said his mother, Tiffany Sanchez.
EJ soon landed the role of Lewis in Season 5 of Cobra Kai, a martial arts drama series that debuted last Friday. While searching for his father in Mexico, one of his characters, Miguel, comes across Luis and his father and believes they could be family. Once these speculations surface, EJ will appear in the first two episodes of the season.
“What do you hope happens next? What do you expect from this?” Brown asked. “I will participate again,” he said.
He shot scenes in Atlanta and Puerto Rico last year, and since then, due to non-disclosure agreements, his role has been kept secret until now.
“When I first started auditioning, I was a mess, but now I love auditions,” said EJ Sanchez.
His mom can’t wait to see where EJ’s acting takes him next. “He’s never been shy and he loves it, so I’m all for that,” she said.
As for EJ, he says he’s ready to audition for more gigs in the future in hopes that his acting career will eventually pay off. Because I can do it and I can have fun,” he joked.
