HBP: S09E09: Cobra Kai’s Jesse Kove chats to me about his career and more

Jesse Kove is an established and successful American actor who has a myriad of credits to his name. Having got interest in the entertainment industry at an early age, performing skits for his family and visiting film sets with his father (Martin Kove aka Karate Kid/Cobra Kai bad guy John Kreese). He has racked up some very good roles, one of his most memorable starring alongside Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love, Enemy at the Gates, The Handmaid’s Tale) in Wings of Eagles, an unofficial sequel to Chariots of Fire. Filmed in China and follows the incredible story of Eric Liddell.

Jesse has recently been seen on Netflix which brought him to the attention of a whole new fan base. In Cobra Kai he plays David, a high school jock who is the bully of the younger Kreese. Ironically he plays the bully rather than of the younger version of the character his father plays so well. We chat about his experience and his absolute love for the show and the nostalgia it brings. We also find out what muppet he would be, with a big clue being that Jesse loves cookies!
