Ludmilla Vobet Drago is the wife of Ivan Drago and a member of the Soviet Union. She serves as the secondary antagonist of Rocky IV. She was the double-gold medalist in swimming. Six months before Ivan Drago actually fought Rocky Balboa, Ludmilla and Ivan were very poor. Tall, blonde and statuesque in stature, Ludmilla shaved her head to make profit, and so did Ivan in return. It is shown in the beginning that she is extremely arrogantly self-confident and has somewhat of a sadistic, cruel streak about her. Two examples being that she was shown smiling while Drago beats Apollo Creed to death and when Rocky challenges Drago; she insisted that it would be held in Moscow whilst criticizing America. In the end though, Ludmilla actually expresses concern over Drago's well being almost as equal to Adrian's concern over Rocky. Following Drago's defeat by Rocky, Ludmilla is last seen dismayed over her husband's humiliating defeat. The part of Ludmilla was played by actress/centerfold TV personality Brigitte Nielsen, a former wife of Sylvester Stallone.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, she gave birth to her son, Viktor Drago.
