Elizabeth Shue and Ralph Macchio play the lead roles in Karate Kid.
In the third season of Cobra Kai, Elizabeth Shue reprised her role as Ali Mills. The character was introduced as the love interest of Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) in the 1984 martial arts film Karate Kid. Even though we haven’t worked together in over 35 years, Macchio and Shu have strong chemistry in a well-known series.
Ralph Macchio talked about his chemistry with Elizabeth Shue in a recentinterview.

In a backstage interview with Entertainment Tonight and his co-stars, Cobra Kai Makkio revealed why he thinks he and Shu still have chemistry on screen. He explained that they have a strong bond because they share the experience of working on a popular movie franchise.
We’ve been walking in the shoes of these characters for so long and we have the Karate Kid movie which, like I said, is part of pop culture and has a strong meaning for people. It’s part of childhood, we’ve all experienced it from different angles, and when we see each other there’s a kind of brotherhood spirit that makes us share something, even if it’s not said….. You instinctively have a chemistry, or you instinctively have something that you share, the actor said.
He went on to say that working with Shu again was like reuniting with someone from high school.
But even then, it’s more than that, Macchio said. It’s not just that you had that relationship and that time together provided experiences and inspiration for people all over the world, so it’s a kind of unspoken language that you have that lends itself to these scenes and gives you nostalgia.
Elizabeth Shue made similar comments in an interview.

During the interview, Shue made similar comments about McKio and William Zabka, who plays Johnny Lawrence, Ali’s ex-boyfriend. The actress revealed that she has not had any contact with her opposite number since the filming of Karate Kid. However, she did say that she happened to run into Zabka at a recent Comic-Con appearance. Although they haven’t seen each other in years, the actress says it’s like the movie never stops, especially when you play her.
It seemed like our chemistry and relationship was exactly the same, the Leaving Las Vegas star said.
Shu complimented Zabka and Macchio on their acting skills.
I have a deep, deep respect for them both as actors. That’s the one thing I really felt like, ah, these guys are great actors ….. That’s what’s important to me right now. I really enjoy working with great actors and they love it, the 57-year-old revealed.
Later in the interview, Zabka also revealed that he felt a connection with Macchio and Shu because of their involvement together in Karate Kid.
We’ve really all become friends and family. It’s like doing everything, it’s like a high school reunion. It’s very familiar, and we shared that special moment in time, and it still resonates today, the actor said.
