Netflix’s The Karate Kid spinoff series, Cobra Kai has introduced plenty of new, ambitious karatekas over the last few seasons. But recently in its fourth installment, a mysterious newbie character “Lia” who wasn’t a spry martial arts student came into the scene, and soon she was loved by many. Milena Rivero was the actress portraying this lovely girl.
Get to know more about her as this Milena Rivero Bio proceeds.
Milena Rivero On Cobra Kai
Milena Rivero played Lia, a middle school student who was stuck at the center of a love triangle between Kenny (Dallas Dupree Young) and Daniel LaRusso’s son, Anthony (Griffin Santopietro). Well, if you haven’t watched the show, Kenny aka the new kid, is the good one while Anthony’s the nastier one.
She first comes into the scene at Anthony’s close friend who asks Kenny not to pay Anthony and his groupies’ antics any attention. Soon, Kenny then falls for Lia’s empathetic nature. But, of course, she was liked by the bully as well.
Kenny is then further tormented by Anthony and his crew (even catfishing him under Lia’s name online), prompting him to join Cobra Kai.
Let’s hope that Kenny will grow stronger over time, not just physically, but also emotionally, and be able to confess to Lia.
