Ralph Macchio FAQ
How old was Ralph Macchio when he starred in Karate Kid I?
Ralph was actually born in 1961, making him around 22-23 years old when he played the lead role of Daniel in Karate Kid. So really... maybe they should have called it Karate Man. Ha-dee-ha!
Ralph was such a good-looking kid, ahem, young adult... why haven't we seen him in any other films except the Karate Kid sequels?
Because unfortunately Ralph grew up to become Tom Hanks, and Hollywood didn't need another one of those.
