Goal, Ted Lasso fans! Richmond has scored a new, promising player in Zava. But before we dive into whether or not a new player will help the team win the season, let’s get to know the actor. Who plays Zava in Ted Lasso? That would be American actor Maximilian Osinski.

Richmond has very much improved from when we first meet the team. However, they still have a long way to go if they want to win the season. Or, specifically, if they want to beat Rupert’s West Ham. But in season 3 episode 2, Richmond manages to get a seemingly promising new player.

Who plays Zava in Ted Lasso?

In the Apple TV+ series, Zava is portrayed by Austrian-born American actor actor Maximilian Osinski. Marvel fans may recognize the actor from Agents of SHIELD, where Osinski portrayed Agent Davis. Osinski has also appeared in New Amsterdam, Shameless, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and other projects. Audiences will be seeing plenty of him in Ted Lasso, as Osinski is signed up in the recurring role of Zava.

Now, we’re not sure if Zava will help Richmond or sink it further. After all, he appears to have a snobby and pretentious personality, Zava may start a conflict or two before he gets along with the others.

Is Ted Lasso’s Zava a real soccer player?

It has not been officially shared if Zava is based on a real footballer, but there was a Ukrainian football midfielder who is considered one of the greatest of all time, and his name is Aleksandr Zavarov. After Zavarov stopped playing, he became the head coach at FC Arsenal Kyiv. He has since retired.

Ted Lasso season 3 episode 2 only lightly introduces Zava, but we’ll be getting to know more about him in the upcoming episode on Wednesday, March 29.
