Do you know somebody who was truly born to be a star? Well, let me brief you on Ms. Mary Mouser. She belongs to the list of American stars whose quest to become popular started too soon in their lives. She’s already accomplished several things in her field of work, although she’s still in her twenties. Mary is best known for her performances in many American TV shows, like NCIS, Life is Wild, Body of Proof, and the latest, Cobra Kai as Samantha LaRusso.
Find out if Samantha from Cobra Kai is dating a boyfriend or is married to a husband. Also, her birthday and net worth in 2021 are revealed here.
Mary Mouser as Cobra Kai Cast Samantha LaRusso
Mary Mouser portrays the role of Samantha LaRusso, who is the daughter of Daniel and Amanda LaRusso. She’s the love interest of Miguel Diaz (Xolo Maridueña). Even though she spends time with the rich in school, she still prefers to be intelligent, kind and doesn’t allow bullying.
Sam’s father taught her karate at the age of eight (8) and became the second disciple (first if Robby Keene) in the newly re-established Miyagi-Do Karate. But, after the West Valley High School fight and her dispute with Tory Nichols (Miguel’s ex-girlfriend), Sam was hospitalized and eventually suffered from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). She was left indecisive over karate.
However, Samantha’s father took her to the All-Valley Sports Arena, narrated how Mr.Miyagi helped him prevail over his fears. And Sam, in the end, returned to their martial arts training. She was seen training with the other Dojo’s disciples to get ready for the competition versus Cobra Kai to decide which dojos would stay in the Valley.
In an interview, Mary stated that she auditioned for the character of Mary without knowing what the production was about. She had never watched the original movie series Karate Kid. The original film was released way before the actress came into existence, so no wonder she hadn’t seen it. When she began progressing with her auditions, she chose not to watch the film until she was positive she had taken the role to avoid the ‘jinx. And when she finally got a call that she got the part, she immediately binged watch it almost five times.
Portraying the daughter of renowned Daniel LaRusso, Samantha LaRusso had to experience emotional and physical hardship to ensure she would present Samantha as what others expected her to be. Just like all things, there were aspects of her training that were a bit more manageable and some things that were tougher for her, especially the “tornado kick.”
Samantha from Cobra Kai got bitterly disappointed and dismayed, though the production was so patient and helpful, and she finally succeeded in working it out properly.
