We chatted with Hannah Defler about season 4 of Cobra Kai on Netflix and other fun things she is currently involved in. Hannah played Lexi DiMarco, Nate’s junior date to prom. Check out our conversation below.
When did you decide that storytelling was something you wanted to do?
Hannah Defler (HD): Sharing my experience and passion that I have towards something has always been what I love to do. For others to know and understand more of what I experienced gives people more of an inside scoop of the reality.
How did you get involved with Cobra Kai?
HD: I first saw Cobra Kai S4 was filming from Facebook groups that I was in. Filming is something I always wanted to get into, I just never knew how, so I figured this would be a perfect opportunity. I ended up getting lucky one day on set when they told me I was going to be Nate’s date/gf Lexi DiMarco.
What can you tell us about Sony Music U?
HD: I am a college marketing representative for Sony Music. Through this, I work on marketing campaigns with other reps to create an ideal plan to market these artists songs. I’ve worked on campaigns for Niko Moon, Tai Verdes, Seaforth, Old Dominion, Jamie Ray and more to come.
What do you like the most about storytelling?
HD: I like being able to tell what happened and what I experienced from my own perspective. Working on the show, I got to experience so many amazing things and getting to share what I went through and the opportunities that were thrown my way are so special.
What are some of your hobbies outside of the entertainment world?
HD: I love making tiktoks, taking Instagram pictures, and making vlogs. I’m highly acclimated in the social media environment. I do a lot of brand partnerships with companies and sponsored videos and pictures. I also am in a sorority at my college so being able to hangout with them and help out with Girl Scouts events, which is our philanthropy, is amazing.
What is the ideal project you want to work on in the future?
HD: I would love to work on something pertaining to Marvel or DC. I love action and stunts so being able to play a role in one of these amazing universes would be a dream.
