The Meaningful Wrap Gift Ralph Macchio Hand-Delivered To His Cobra Kai Co-Stars


Peyton List, who has amassed more than 60 screen credits in the past 20 years — including the Disney Channel series “Jessie” and the Hulu series “Light as a Feather” — joined “Cobra Kai” in Season 2 as Tory Nichols, a scrappy teen from a broken home who eventually falls for the negative influences of the Cobra Kai dojo. Off-screen, though, List’s experiences have been positive, especially when it comes to the kindness of Ralph Macchio, who executive produces “Cobra Kai” in addition to starring in it.

In an interview with Collider about “Cobra Kai” Season 4, List recalled her warm memory of Macchio handing her a wrap gift as filming was nearly finished for the season. “I’ve received some memorable wrap gifts, especially on ‘Cobra Kai’ — people go so hard on wrap gifts, and each of the cast members does something individual and different,” List said “This year, Ralph gave us a cup that was identical to the one he received on the first ‘Karate Kid.’ It was basically a replica, and he just hand delivered it to my trailer, and I think he did that for everyone.”

List added that Macchio is “the most thoughtful guy,” and his wrap gift and the manner in which he gives them out is a reflection of that: “He hand delivers everything and makes sure he has his touch on everything, and he thinks about each little gift and each little piece of memorabilia he’s going to give … his heart is really in the show,” List said.
