That One Audition with Alyshia Ochse

Jul 21, 2020

Today’s guest has put in his 10,000 hours and then some. As he says, he’s marked his spot.

We’re talking with Maximiliano Hernandez, who’s an actor, writer, producer, and teacher. Many of you will know him for his role as Agent Jasper Sitwell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s appeared in Thor, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Endgame, as well as Marvel’s hit TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

His journey began in Brooklyn and continued to the stage in New York City before moving on to a prolific career in film and television. His credits range from TV dramas like FX’s The Americans, TNT’s The Last Ship, Amazon’s Hand of God, and Audience Network’s Mr. Mercedes. As well as critically acclaimed films like Sicario and Warrior.

He shares how being dyslexic is one of his superhero talents, how being a ‘nice guy’ can seal the deal, and how important it is to stay open, stay prepared, and to let go of how we think things should happen. That’s when the magic can happen.
