Karate Kid & Cobra Kai Actor Rob Garrison Dies at 59
Rob Garrison has passed away. He was 59-years old. Garrison is arguably best known for playing Tommy in 1984's The Karate Kid, a role which he reprised this year for YouTube's successful Cobra Kai series. The actor died Friday morning in a hospital in West Virginia. According to his sister-in-law, Garrison was suffering liver and kidney problems and was in the hospital for over a month. He died as a result of his organs shutting down. His family is currently setting up funeral arrangements.

"Rob was a great person and ambassador to The Karate Kid legacy," said his talent manager Rick Henriques in a statement. Henriques went on to say, "His performance in season 2 of Cobra Kai, being his last, was simply amazing and he stole the episode." Garrison's Tommy character was the one in Karate Kid who excitedly cheered on William Zabka's Johnny Lawrence during his final match with Ralph Macchio.
