Mayans M.C. Actor Emilio Rivera on His Mayans Cast and Working With Rob Zombie

Fans of Sons of Anarchy and Mayans M.C. will recognize Emilio Rivera for his role as Marcus. Next up, Emilio can be seen in Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell, a sequel to The Devils Rejects. I spoke to Emilio about his role and working with Rob Zombie and his experience on Mayans.


I loved the real talk and authenticity that Emilio carries himself with. Sure he threw in some explicit words, but that’s who he is, I respect that. In an industry where people can be afraid to be themselves and want a certain image projected, Emilio is a rare one.

He genuinely seemed stoked to work with Rob Zombie. Hearing about how surprised Emilio was about what kind of a solid dude Rob was, is refreshing to hear. The image of Rob isn’t what you think he’d be. That was really cool for Emilio to share that.

The conversation was a lot about authenticity and carrying yourself in the industry. For any actor or performer out there, Emilio shared some fantastic advice about how to make a career as an actor and what it takes. That’s some real advice from someone whose done it.

3 FROM HELL’ will also screen for a final time in select theaters on October 14th. ‘3 FROM HELL’ will arrive on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital and On Demand October 15
