Cobra Kai continues to be a huge hit on Netflix and season four included the ultimate cliffhanger. Daniel LaRusso (played by Ralph Macchio) teamed up with Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) once more to take down the Cobra Kai dojo. Fans are keen to find out more about the LaRusso actor’s daughter and Express.co.uk has all you need to know.

Who is Julia Macchio?

Julia Macchio, 30, is one of Ralph Macchio’s two children, as he also has a son called Daniel.

His daughter is an actress herself and fans may be interested to hear she has worked alongside her father.

The star actually had a cameo in the latest season of Cobra Kai, and she played a key role.

The actress played Daniel’s cousin Vanessa LaRusso, and she gave Daniel and his wife counselling when it came to their children’s behaviour.

Her character was a grad school student in year two studying child psychology.

She offered her help to find out why Anthony LaRusso (Griffin Santopietro) was misbehaving at school.

However, Amanda LaRusso (Courtney Henggeler) was not keen on the idea and slated her for her techniques.

Vanessa had in fact been analysing Daniel and Amanda as parents, rather than their son’s behaviour.

Julia Macchio has also starred in the film Stella’s Last Weekend and Girl Most Likely.

Addressing her cameo in Cobra Kai, the actress said on Twitter: “I’m so beyond grateful to have worked with/been in the company of such an incredible cast, crew and team.

“Extra big thanks to the wonderful writers for the opportunity to join the party.”

Co-creator Jon Hurwitz shared the star’s Tweet and revealed she had dished the dirt on her father.

He said: “Loved finally having a chance to work with the talented and supremely kind @Julia_Macchio!

“She had everyone on set laughing as she criticised Daniel’s parenting.

“Her real dad @ralphmacchio could teach the LaRussos a thing or two!”

On Instagram, the actress said: “The love that I have for this experience and for every person involved is beyond measure.”

She shared some behind the scenes photos of herself and her father, along with a loving message.

She penned: “Before I started/After I wrapped with the best dad in the world!”

Her appearance alongside her father is likely to get her noticed as she had only ever starred in a few titles beforehand.

Julia’s other credits include the short film Across Grace Valley and the TV movie Wholly Broken.

Fans took to Twitter to say they would love to see the star’s character return in future seasons of Cobra Kai.

CobraKaiNoMercyFan said: “@Julia_Macchio I’m hoping they use you more in #CobraKai because u have a lot of potential on the set.

“It was funny when u set ur dad off on the show.”

Brendon Smith added: “She absolutely nailed this role #CobraKai.”

Dominick Ruocco said: “I love these photos of you and your dad and hope we get more of Vanessa in season 5.

“#CobraKai is one of the few shows that always introduces awesome new characters.”

Cobra Kai seasons 1-4 are on Netflix now.
