I am reposting this because there was a technical difficulty. I just want to thank everyone around the whole wide World for taking the Rocky family into their hearts for over 40 years. It’s been my Ultimate privilege to have been able to create and play this meaningful character. Though it breaks my heart, Sadly all things must pass… and end. I love you Kind and generous people , and The most wonderful thing of all , is that ROCKY will never die because he lives on in you ….
As far as we know, Rocky’s final appearance is in Creed II, in theatres now.
Such a beautiful online farewell.
Boxers or otherwise, we’re all drawn to the inspiration of Rocky Balboa and will continue to be for years to come!
