Maximiliano Hernández, a Brooklyn native, began acting in high school in order to get out of detention. Although his parents, both originally from Honduras, wanted him to study a trade, he chose to study the craft of acting. After leaving the BFA program at Leonard Davis Center for the performing arts in Harlem, Hernández began working Off-Broadway at theaters like The Cherry Lane and The Public, and was a founding member of Axis, an experimental theater company based at the Sheridan Lane Theater. He then graduated to guest star on Law & Order and other New York-based TV shows and small parts on locally-shot films like Mira Nair’s The Namesake and James Gray’s The Yards. Hernández was then cast and worked opposite Edward Norton in Gavin O’Connor’s Pride & Glory. Since then, he and his family relocated to Los Angeles, where he co-starred on the Fox series K-Ville, and appeared on numerous other shows, including 24, Numb3rs and Shark.
On the big screen, Hernández was recently seen in the Dreamworks/Nickelodeon film Hotel for Dogs. He also reunited with Gavin O’Connor on the film Warrior. Hernández lives with his son, Diego, and his fiancée Marta Cabret in Pasadena. He still avoids detention at all costs.
Holly Taylor was born in Middleton, Nova Scotia, Canada on Halloween 1997. Although her parents only lived about 500 yards from the hospital, it was clear that Holly wasn’t going to wait!
On the way to the hospital Holly made her first “debut” and became front page news in the local newspaper as the first baby in 25 years to be born in an ambulance and the first ever delivery for the two Paramedics on duty that night.
As a toddler there was always a smile on Holly’s face and she danced and sang along with everything she saw or heard on TV or Radio.
In early 2000, when Holly was just three-and-a-half, her family moved to New Jersey and enrolled her in a dance class. About a year later, she announced to her parents that she was going to dance on Broadway when she grew up. By age 11, that dream became a reality, and Holly was dancing eight shows a week in Billy Elliot at the Imperial Theater on Broadway in New York City.
While performing in Billy Elliot, Holly continued to attend middle school in New Jersey, excelling in her academics. She was invited to attend the Johns Hopkins program for Gifted and Talented Children and the following year was invited to the International Student Exchange Program for Gifted Children. Holly also attended the two-week summer intensive program at the ABT (American Ballet Theatre in NYC), after which she was invited to attend their Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (JKO) Fulltime Dance Program.
Although she had to turn down all of the above opportunities due to her commitment to Billy Elliot, Holly remains very proud of her academic achievements and continues to excel and dream “big dreams” in her life, especially now that she is a Freshman in High School and has a new role to play, as Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys’s daughter Paige, in the FX production of The Americans.
Born in Colorado, Keidrich Sellati has been a New Yorker since 2009.

He is currently excelling in the fifth grade, and loves reading, traveling and hanging out with his friends and family. He stays active playing hockey, snowboarding, practicing parkour (a.k.a. “free running”), riding his bike, and playing with his dog, Oscar.
