'Mayans MC' Cast & Crew Defend Show Violence at Summer TCAs 2019

The stars of Mayans MC hit the stage for their panel discussion at the 2019 Summer TCA Press Tour on Tuesday (August 3) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Show creator Keith Sutter attended the event alongside stars Elgin James, JD Pardo, Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmost, Sarah Bolger, Danny Pino, and Emilio Rivera as they promoted the upcoming new season of their FX show.

During the event, Keith defended the show’s violent scenes.

“This is a world that has the language of violence,” Keith said via Deadline. “We’re exploring these damaged characters in this dark world…Creatively it’s our job to tell human truth through fiction. The truth of violence is that it’s never gratuitous. It’s not pretty, not sexy and it always has consequences…Violence shatters humanity and that’s my job – to put it in story.”

The second season of Mayans MC will premiere on Tuesday, September 3 on FX.

'Mayans MC' Star JD Pardo Reveals How He Got His Role

JD Pardo and Sarah Bolger hit the red carpet at the panel for Mayans MC during the final day of 2018 Comic-Con on Sunday (July 22) in San Diego, Calif.

Some of the other cast members at the panel included Clayton Cardenas, Edward James Olmos, Michael Irby, Carla Baratta, Antonio Jaramillo, Raoul Max Trujillo, Richard Cabral, Danny Pino, Emilio Rivera, Frankie Loyal, Vincent Vargas, and Joseph Lucero.

JD and series creator Kurt Sutter opened up during the panel about how he was cast in the lead role.

“I saw his read with a couple other actors and sort of knew what I was looking for,” Kurt said (via Variety). “It was one of those things where I knew what I wasn’t looking for and then I saw JD read and there was something interesting and commanding in what he was doing.“

“We had this honest conversation where he told me what he wanted the character to be,” JD added. “I told [Kurt], ‘If you give me this opportunity I will not let you down, I will not let FX down, I will not let the fans down.’”

Mayans MC is a spin-off of the beloved series Sons of Anarchy.

FYI: JD is wearing Aquatalia shoes.
