Mike Barnes is introduced in “The Karate Kid Part III” as the main card of Daniel LaRusso. Listed by Terry Silver to face and defeat Daniel at the upcoming All Valley Tournament, Barnes proves himself no match for Daniel. While Kanan does a great job as one of Daniel’s most challenging enemies, his role in “Part III” is almost non-existent.
He explained: “I passed out in the Dunes casino and it turned out that the pain in my leg was caused by internal bleeding and it was blood going down my femoral artery. Doctors aren’t sure if they’ll be successful in treating this problem. “It was the scariest thing that ever happened to me in my life,” said Kanan.
Thankfully, he survived, but Kanan’s troubles are far from over. Although he managed to convince the surgeons to perform the surgery without cutting through his abdomen (“I knew if they cut through my abs, I’d be out of the movie,” Kanan recalls), the producers for “Part III” were less sympathetic to his recent death. “I got a call from the studio – no flowers, no balloons – just get back to work, I think in 12 days or we’ll do it again,” says Kanan.
Kanan explained: “I asked them to leave the hospital for not following the doctor’s advice. A risky decision on its part, Kanan’s portrayal of Barnes is priceless for “Part III,” and hopefully today, Hollywood can behave a little less like Cobra Kai and show some mercy for happiness. happiness of the actors.
