Cobra KAI!!!!

image1  I’ve spent the last month and a half making treks to the set of Cobra Kai.  This is a show based on The Karate Kid and stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka as Daniel LoRusso and Johnny Lawrence — 30 years later!  I’m not positive who conceived of this show but I think it was the brainchild of the writers/directors/producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg.  Ralph and Billy are also producers so they’re invested in this somehow (of course!).  Also starring is Xolo Mariduena as Miguel, the teen who befriends Johnny and inspires Johnny to open up a dojo where Miguel will learn the Cobra KAI! way.  I’m appearing as Rosa, Miguel’s grandmother.  Xolo is such a huge talent and he’s also such a typical, dungeons & dragons playing, goofing-around kid who is very down to earth and respectful of adults.  So so great.  Vanessa Rubio is playing Carmen, Miguel’s mother.  Vanessa is truly a gentle soul; I’m amazed to have gotten the opportunity to work so closely with such a kind AND nice AND talented AND super-gorgeous person.  Vanessa and I are so blessed and thrilled about this opportunity — let’s all subscribe to Sony Youtube-Red please!  Also, by the way, my ATL friends- the show is hiring tons of Atlanta talent!  Yay!
