“He’s kind of like the brother I never asked for”: Xolo Maridueña on His Bromance With Cobra Kai Co-star Jacob Bertrand

“He’s kind of like the brother I never asked for”: Xolo Maridueña on His Bromance With Cobra Kai Co-star Jacob Bertrand

There is no denying the fact that the people who you grow up with become some of the most important people in your life. Especially if it is someone who you worked with closely. Just like William Zabka and Ralph Macchio became great friends while working together on The Karate Kid. And given that Netflix’s Cobra Kai is all about the next generation of kids, it makes sense that there are a couple of similar friendships among the actors. One such duo is Xolo Maridueña and Jacob Bertrand.

In a recent interview with Teen Vogue Firsts, Xolo opened up about his bond with the Cobra Kai co-actor and real-life best friend, Jacob Bertrand. It is honestly no secret that most Cobra Kai cast members are friends in real life. But the case of Xolo and Jacob is different. They practically address each other as brothers, and it is wholesome. And that is also the reason Xolo just cannot stop talking about his best friend “Hawk”. So, with no further ado, let’s see what all he had to say about Jacob.

Xolo Maridueña on his relationship with Cobra Kai co-star Jacob Bertrand

There have been multiple times when Xolo has addressed Jacob as a brother, and in the interview with Teen Vogue Firsts, he did that yet again. “My brother Jacob Scott-Thomas Bertrand, he’s the biggest wrestler when it comes to tomfoolery like that,” Xolo said while talking about the friendly fights that happen at the sets of Cobra Kai. However, things turn competitive quite quickly during these spars. Jacob apparently becomes invested and wrestles to win. And Xolo Maridueña is of the opinion that he can register a win against Eli “Hawk” Moskowitz, if Jacob takes things a bit more Zen.

It seems like Jacob Bertrand has this habit of forming tight bonds with his co-stars. It was recently confirmed that he is dating Peyton List, his co-star on the show, with whom he started as friend in their Disney days. And it is also so nice to see that the cast actually has all this love and affection toward each other. While talking about Jacob, Xolo said, “I don’t have a brother, I have four sisters, so he’s kind of like the brother I never asked for. And he’s great. I love him.
