Tanner Buchanan explained how he is different compared to his "Cobra Kai" character and how he used to hang out with very few people as a kid. The actor revealed that he was more focused on his career growing up, PageSix reported.

Buchanan, who is popularly known for playing the bad boy character named Robby Keene in "Cobra Kai," noted that he is "very much the opposite" in real life. "I’ve been acting since I was a kid, so I was very much focused because I knew this is what I wanted to do and I had to be very professional," the 23-year-old actor said.

He further added that as a kid he used to go home straight from the set and do his homework at night before sleeping.

"I was very driven and knew what I wanted to do," Buchanan said.

While the actor is now playing a bad boy on the Netflix show, he revealed how he used to always get roles of a nerd and could relate to them, according to PageSix.

Before landing a role in "Cobra Kai," the actor had worked in TV series like "Game Shakers" from 2015 to 2019, "Designated Survivor" from 2016 to 2018, and "Fuller House" in 2017.

The actor also appeared in movies like "The Goldbergs: 1990-Something," "Anything," "The Heyday of the Insensitive Bastards" and "The Real St. Nick."

"I didn’t hang out with a lot of people. I always kept to myself," Buchanan admitted. The actor revealed his favorite thing growing up was to play guitar and watch the History Channel. "I still like to do that … that was my jam back then, and now," he added.

Buchanan also opened up about his fame after "Cobra Kai" and said that he appreciates how people love the show. Moreover, he noted that working as an actor has been always been one of his "dream jobs" and now, he is glad that people are liking the show.

"Cobra Kai" season 4 is slated to premiere this Friday on Netflix.

Regarding the series, the actor explained that this is going to be the most "intense" season and packed with a lot of action scenes. Buchanan teased that some new characters will be introduced in this season along with some old ones from the original franchise.
