Ludmilla Drago: Brigette Nielsen set to return in Creed 2?Written by Leroy Cleveland
The lovely Brigette Nielsen, 54, who played the ice-cold wife of villain Ivan Drago in Rocky 4, might make an appearance in Creed 2 (or Rocky 8).
Creed 2, which will be released in November, is a sequel to Creed (or Rocky 7) which debuted in late 2015.
In the latest Creed segment, Rocky's protege, Adonis Creed, faces the son of his father's killer, Ivan Drago. And yes, appearing in a Rocky movie for the first time since Rocky 4 (1985), Dolph Lundgren will reprise his role as the infamous Drago.
So, what about Ludmilla Drago, Ivan's beautiful-but-sadistic wife, who served as the secondary antagonist in Rocky 4?
Rumors abound Brigette Nielsen might reprise her role as Ludmilla as well although nothing has been confirmed. Should she resurface, expect Ludmilla's part to be smaller than her previous role in Rocky 4.
Married to Sylvester Stallone in real life at the time, Nielsen was perfect for Ludmilla's role. Stunning and cunning but with a vile evil streak, Ludmilla was part of her husband's promotional team and reveled in Apollo's death at the hands of her husband.
