“Cobra Kai” exposes new karate champions to Netflix viewers with each season. There always seems to be at least a handful of underprivileged teenagers living in the San Fernando Valley that need to learn how to protect themselves, whether it’s for Cobra Kai, Miyagi-Do, or Eagle Fang.
In the first season, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) uses his recruiting abilities to turn Cobra Kai into a social media brand, and while Johnny remains a staunch Luddite, Miguel Diaz (Xolo Mariduea) does his best to assist his sensei in making the shift to the digital world.
Season 4 brings a fresh set of difficulties for Johnny that social media can’t solve. Johnny will need to find more female students in order to have a chance at winning the All Valley Karate Tournament. All hope appears to be lost for Eagle Fang Karate after failing to persuade any members of the track team and narrowly losing Moon’s ex-girlfriend Piper (Selah Austria) to Cobra Kai. That is until Johnny notices a young debate student who captures his attention right away.
All Scenes Devon Lee: Cobra Kai Season 4
While Johnny is thinking about a possible ruse that could have involved Miguel dressing up as a girl (probably not a winning plan), he observes Devon Lee destroying her opponent on the debate stage at school. Despite the fact that Bert (Owen Morgan) had suggested her in the first place, Johnny promptly declares, “I just found the most badass female in the valley.”
Devon rapidly becomes a valued new member of the Eagle Fang dojo, however she first perplexes Johnny when she declares her preferred pronouns during her first karate lesson.
So, who plays Devon, the young actress?
Devon is played by Oona O’Brien
Devon is played by Oona O’Brien, a British actress. The addition of Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny and O’Brien’s casting as Devon in “Cobra Kai” was initially confirmed in February 2021. (via Variety). According to O’Brien’s IMDb biography, Season 4 of “Cobra Kai” will be her first credited role. The young actor made her debut in the short film “Sky High,” which was released in 2020. (not to be confused with the 2005 superhero film of the same name). Devon’s performance in the fourth season of “Cobra Kai” led us to believe that the fifth season will be just as good.
By sprinkling references to the “Bloodsport” franchise, “Delta Force,” “Billy Jack,” “The Octagon,” and “Lady Dragon,” Devon rapidly becomes one of Johnny’s favorite students.
Sher goes on to prove herself immediately after the tournament’s opening round. When she starts to figure out how many points Eagle Fang will need to catch up to Cobra Kai, Johnny wisely declares, “Math isn’t something I’m interested in.
To defeat Cobra Kai, what will we need?” “Math,” Devon says, surprised. She then goes into detail about how many points the group requires, making careful to use language Johnny will understand. “The tighter the vices around Cobra Kai’s metaphorical balls become the further we progress as a unit.” Johnny gives her a thumbs up.
Devon puts up a valiant battle against Tory Nichols (Peyton List) of Cobra Kai, but she succumbs shortly. Devon responds to Johnny’s reassurance that she shouldn’t feel bad: “I’m in good spirits. I had only six weeks of training. Next year, I’m going to trample on all of these scumbags.”
