Mary Mouser, who stars as Samantha LaRusso in YouTube’s Cobra Kai series, revealed Rocky Stallone was her inspiration for getting in fighting shape.
“Whenever they, like, approached me about it, they were like, ‘we want a Rocky IV,’ I think is what they said. They were like, ‘we want that,'” said Mouser, “and I was like, ‘I got you!'”
Rocky IV contains the famous sequence of Sylvester Stallone’s character training in the snow in Russia.
Mouser said her and her boyfriend are working their way through the whole Rocky series now after watching the fourth movie.
Now, she finds herself imitating the fighting moves whenever she has free time.
“This was so fun,” said Mouser, “this whole thing, like, all the different pieces of the training sequence.”
