THE ROCK FINALLY GETS TO MEET 'YOUNG ROCK' CAST MEMBERS, DISCUSSES MEMORIES OF HIS FATHER & GRANDMOTHER

By Mike Johnson on 2022-09-25 09:15:00

With the majority of Young Rock filmed in Australia for the first two seasons and the COVID-19 pandemic, The Rock revealed today on Instagram that he had never actually met a number of the core cast members in person.  With the third season currently underway and now filming in Memphis, that changed, as seen by the following social media posts:

"I love and miss you grandma ??????

I’m emo as I type this, because I just didn’t want to let her go…..

@atuisila has played my grandmother on Young Rock for the last two years.

This is the first time I’ve met Ana.

But right now I’m holding my grandma one more time.

Looking at her and talking to her one more time.

Young Rock is so surreal and has served a greater, deeper purpose far beyond than just entertainment for me.

If the show goes on for 10 more seasons or it all ends today — I’m so good and grateful, because I got to hold my grandma one more time.

If you guys have the blessing to have your grandma or grandpa around, make sure you hug em hard because you never know when it could be your last.

I love and miss you grandma and one day we’ll dance again.
Your Tuife’ai ????

Thank you, Ana.
Thank you."

"After two years, I finally met the man who plays my dad, Rocky “Soulman” Johnson on YOUNG ROCK.

@officialjosephleeanderson ????????

I didn’t want our hug to end.

It was moving to finally meet Joseph, who’s resemblance, mannerisms and spirit of my dad is uncanny.

It was as if I was right there talking with my dad one more time.

All the memories came back to me.
All the tough and often complicated love he gave me growing up.
But it was still love.
As a man and a father - years later, I understand.

My dad died suddenly on January 20th of 2020.

I never got a chance to say goodbye one last time.

But finally meeting Joe, I got a chance to say hello one more time.

Thank you Joe.
Love you brother.

DJ ????"

"Growing up as a kid and even as a man, I never took a walk with my dad.

If he were alive today, I would’ve loved to have tried this with him.

I asked @officialjosephleeanderson (who plays my dad on our show Young Rock) to take a walk with me because I wanted to feel what it was like to walk and just shoot the shit with my old man.

This felt good.
Kinda cathartic in a way.
Helps me reconcile some complicated father/son shit.

See ya down the road dad.
Let’s get a walk in.

(thanks Joe, for everything)"
