    MAYANK SAXENA

  • About

    Mayank was born in the United Kingdom to highly educated parents, with his mother being a physician, and father being an architect. He inherited his parents international flair, as they left their native India in the jet age to work throughout Europe and the Middle East. At a few years old, Mayank, too, relocated with his parents and sister from the UK to the United States - New York City to be exact!

     

    Mayank grew up on a healthy living of playing Sega, scarfing down Cheetos, and using his 18-story building as a staging ground for playing Cops-and-Robbers with friends. And while life was fun as a youngster, he wanted to follow in his mother's footsteps and become a doctor.

     

    However, Mayank always had a knack for entertaining, telling stories, and more importantly - for being taken with film and television. That gnawing voice precipitated during his high school graduation, and he had to decide;

     

    "Choose what you like, or, choose what you love."

     

    So he paused.

     

    Took a deep breath.

     

    Looked towards his mother, smiling...

     

    ...and pulled the trigger.

     

    The rest is history!

     

    Mayank has had the privilege to study under Bob Krakower in New York City, and Saxon Trainor in Los Angeles. While studying Economics in college, he dived into the world of performing arts training, by taking movement, voice, dance, and scene study classes at various studios in NYC to emulate his own version of a BFA/MFA experience.

    Since then Mayank has worked on critically-acclaimed shows, acting opposite award-winning actors like Matt Bomer, Kevin Bacon, Edie Falco, Viola Davis, and gaining two coveted Top of Show Guest Star roles.
     

    In his free time, Mayank enjoys road trips in the Pacific Southwest, as well as traveling the globe. His most recent journey included a 5-week tour of Egypt, India and the UK. He loves connecting with the locals, learning common phrases and trying to immerse himself in their world & understanding... after all, isn't that what it means to be a explorer?

     

    He hopes to one day spearhead his own philanthropic organization with the triple aim of providing food to the hungry, a safe and educational space for children to play and learn, and financial literacy to young adults. From giving fish, to teaching others to fish - Mayank firmly believes in arming people with the knowledge to be self-sufficient.

     

    In Los Angeles, Mayank enjoys hiking on Los Liones Canyon, or any trail with a view. He also enjoys a good surfing class in Malibu/Venice, as well as going to smorgasbords and endless events LA has to offer. Life's about exploring - so don't be surprised if you see Mayank in a seemingly new environment. He strives to experience 2-3 new things per year that he's never tried before.

    Mayank has roots and frequents New York City.
