Elisabeth Shue, the 1963 born, never stops to impress her audiences and fans even after more than 20 years of acting.Her first role, as Ralph Macchio's girlfriend in The Karate Kid (1984), which unbelievably turned into a great success, marked her beginning of stardom.Miss Tomita, who currently stars on the ABC drama “The Good Doctor,” shared that she recently dined in Seattle with Yuji Okumoto, the actor who portrayed Chozen Toguchi, who challenged Daniel to a violent duel at the end of “Part II.”“We were joking [that] we better be in there,” Miss Tomita, whose show films in Vancouver, said of her meal with Mr. One way to accomplish this, she said, might be to fashion an “alternative reality” where “Chozen and Kumiko got together, and they [appear] in the last episode” of “Cobra Kai.”In 1989’s “The Karate Kid Part III,” Daniel and Miyagi return to Los Angeles, where the disgraced Cobra Kai head sensei John Kreese (Martin Kove) plots revenge against the teacher and student who humiliated him in the first film.Kreese is helped along in his vengeful quest by a Vietnam War buddy, Terry Silver, played by Thomas Ian Griffith. Griffith, who was supposed to be a contemporary of Kreese, is in real life 18 years younger than Mr. Macchio, who was, at the time, somehow still playing a teenager.)It is mentioned at the outset of “Part III” that Kumiko has found a dance studio in Tokyo and thus will not be coming to America. We did the DVD, a special edition, I think it was 25, where we did the special features on the DVD.Because the film and character are so engrained with fans, is it ever challenging for you to constantly have to revisit this one role? In the years after that, I kind of grew my hair long, I went to guitar school and got out of acting for awhile.Elisabeth Shue won Daniel’s heart in the original 1984 film as the Valley Girl Ali Mills — who also happened to be Johnny’s ex. While there, Miyagi reignites a romance with his old flame Yukie (Nobu Mc Carthy), which draws the ire of Miyagi’s former best friend and rival for Yukie’s affections, Sato (Danny Kamekona).When asked by The Washington Times if “Ali with an I” would be back for “Cobra Kai,” Miss Shue would only chuckle.“I don’t know. “I feel like Ali was definitely a part of their past, but I have to wonder if she really is a part of their future.”In 1986’s “Part II,” Daniel and Mr. Meanwhile, Daniel, now single after a only-mentioned breakup with Ali, feels stirrings for young Kumiko (Tamlyn Tomita).“It’s something we created together, and we’re iconic figures in some people’s minds, [so] of course we’re hopeful,” Miss Tomita told The Times of potentially returning for a “Cobra” cameo.
” will be echoing across the Twittersphere next year when “The Karate Kid” reunion series “Cobra Kai” bows on You Tube Red.
At some point is there an impulse to be like “look, I did that when I was a teenager.” You can lean either way on that. Friends of mine that I met around that time, like ten or 15 years after the movie, will remind me today of how I was like “Don’t mention to me.” There was a time of resistance against that, because you want to keep doing new things.
It’s like hearing a band and just hearing the same old song over and over.
I don’t think he actually jumped from one board to another, it was all editing.
He was a great diver and gymnast I think, but movie magic was how they did that really.
