In a new photo by Sutter on day 10 of filming, he captured actor JD Pardo, who will play lead character Ezekiel "EZ" Reyes in the new biker drama. Reyes is a young prospect in the MC, fighting for his full spot with the club.
In the black-and-white shot, Pardo looks upon a shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a Roman Catholic symbol of the Virgin Mary.
Yesterday, Sutter shared the first on-set photo of newly-cast actor Raoul Trujillo sitting atop a bar pool table.
Trujillo has been tapped to play Che "Taza" Romero, vice president of the Mayans San Padre chapter and founding member of the club. The character will also be good friends with Mayans MC president Marcus Alverez.
Day 10 of reshoots for the Mayans MC pilot comes after FX called for a re-written script and casting changes, but Sutter told PopCulture.com that it isn't unusual. He said a similar situation happened before SOA premiered.
"Ironically, I don't know why I was surprised," Sutter said of the decision to reshoot. "It was the same situation we had on Sons, we had major recast and we reshot 95% of the pilot and that's gonna happen again."0comments
"What it does for me is it allows me to watch it and then go what didn't work, what did work, and really do a big rewrite," he added.
