Max Thieriot’s Co-Star’s Career Advice for Aspiring Actors
SEAL Team actor AJ Buckley, Max Thieriot’s co-star on the show, recently shared career advice for actors just starting out in the business.
Buckley, who’s played Sonny Quinn since 2017, has some sound advice.
“You’ve got to create your own path,” the “SEAL Team” star began. “You have to put the work in.”
The fact is true, as with any career. However, Buckley added that in the world of acting, “There’s no easy way, you have to commit and go after it.”
I was on two series prior to SEAL Team,” the actor explained. “I was on CSI: New York and also recurred on a show called Supernatural. Both characters I was playing these nerdy guys. In one I was this ghost hunter and the other I was a lab rat. When I got off the show I was perceived as this nerdy guy.”
While we now recognize Buckley for his macho role on SEAL Team, he shared he’d previously been iconic for what could be deemed as nerdier roles. However, he decided he wanted to break the mold of that typecast. This led the SEAL Team star to mold his physical body into one that would be more suitable for military roles.
However, the actor says that belief in himself is what propelled him forward.
“There’s going to be hard days but the hard days make you stronger,” Buckley concluded.
Buckley’s work paid off. Three years later, the actor revealed a friend had written a part with him in mind on the set of SEAL Team. After all of his efforts, Buckley said, “I got this role of a lifetime.”
