Tanner Buchanan admitted that he was “kind of” a nerd in school. He revealed to Page Six that although the character he plays on Cobra Kai, Robby Keene, is quite troubled and ends up in reform school under the control of Sensei John “No Mercy” Kreese (played by Martin Kove), it has nothing to do with him or his own personal life.
According to Page Six, Tanner Buchanan is “the opposite of Robby.” As a child actor, Buchanan had no problems making it as his lifelong career. He was so driven to have this job and knew what he wanted in life. He did not have time to play and would instead focus on learning and getting homework done.
In the article, Buchanan confesses that he doesn’t have many friends and would rather stay at home and watch TV. He has a broad background in show business; acting in the past but now preferring to be a dancer.
The producer of “Cobra Kai” teased the upcoming season by mentioning that intense action scenes are coming up.
