Bio

Max Arciniega was born and raised in Chicago Illinois. A middle child, it was only obvious that he would find a way to get attention. And he did, playing the part of a homeless kid in his fifth grade play. After getting into costume, Max decided that he didn’t want his hair to look messy, because the girl he had a crush on, was going to be in the audience. So he decided to style his hair, enforcing it with a bottle of Aqua Net hairspray. End result, a homeless kid with perfect hair! But it wasn’t only the play that kept Max excited about performing.

His brother kept him busy choreographing dance routines to perform at local Quinceaneras, while his father kept him busy preparing for his next soccer game. Little did Max know how important both disciplines would help him in his career. The time he spent with his brother learning about the culture of Hip-Hop opened other avenues for Max. He started writing poetry in High School, which in turn led to him writing Hip Hop music. This gave Max an opportunity to perform and get more comfortable on stage as the years went on, playing in venues all across Chicago. On the other hand, his years spent playing soccer gave Max an understanding of teamwork and leadership.Max played since the age of six earning numerous scoring titles in local soccer leagues in the Chicago area. He credits his discipline and focus in his acting career to the sport, and credits his father for being not only a coach on the field but a life coach.

Max took what he learned from his father and brother and began his pursuit in the Entertainment business. He studied Acting at Columbia College Chicago where he earned his B.A in Theater. Throughout college Max made his rounds doing plays all over the city, working on his craft. His hard work paid off when he was offered to play the role of “Orestes” in the Goodman Theaters main stage production of “Electricidad”. Work led to more work, and soon enough people started to take notice. The ABC Network took notice first, casting Max in it’s first diversity showcase held in Chicago. Out of hundreds of actors, Max made the final cut.

This gave him the opportunity to show his talent off to the Executives of the Network, opening up opportunities in Hollywood. Not content, Max packed his bags and made the cross-country trip to L.A to test his talent in the big leagues. It paid off. The CBS Network also sponsored a showcase similar to the ABC one, and once again Max made the final cut. This time it was a group of over a thousand actors. Since then, Max has Guest Starred in a numerous amount of Television shows. Most notably, his recurring role on AMC’s hit series Breaking Bad, playing the role of “Krazy 8”. His third episode was ranked #4 in Entertainment Weekly’s top ten episodes of 2008. Other credits include, ER on NBC, The Unit on CBS, Lincoln Heights on ABC Family, Without a Trace on CBS, Private Practice on ABC, and many others. Max has also been seen in variety of National Commercials including spots for Bud Light, Pepsi, McDonalds, and Home Depot.

As he continues on his artistic journey in Los Angeles, he will return to his Theater roots this Spring playing the part of “Alvaro” in the Pulitzer Prize nominated play “Lydia”. It will be staged at The Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles CA.
