ACTOR, PRODUCER & DIRECTOR

Kevin Sorbo is a Hollywood actor who became internationally famous in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. He has appeared in TV and Film.

Kevin was born on 24th September 1958 in Mound, Minneapolis. Showing his early physical prowess, Kevin excelled at sports in High School but his true ambition lay in getting into show business. After leaving college, Kevin joined an actor’s theatre troupe in which he travelled to Europe and Australia appearing in numerous commercials along the way. At the end of 1986 he settled in Los Angeles where, because of his obvious ability and looks, he went on to feature in several advertisements. Kevin went on to perform in many plays and gained his Screen Actors Guild card. His big break came in 1995 when, due to his 6′ 3″ muscular physique, he became the natural choice for the title role in what would become his signature series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, he even co-write some of the episodes himself.

On television, Kevin Sorbo portrayed an invincible demigod; in his real life, a sudden health crisis left him partially blind and incapacitated at just thirty-eight years old. Yet since appearances are everything in Hollywood, he hid the full details about his condition from the press and continued to film Hercules, which was the number one TV series in the world. In this inspiring memoir, Sorbo shares the story of the crisis that ultimately redefined his measure of success.

 
True Strength is the story of transformation, persistence, and hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Sorbo reflects on his childhood in Minnesota and his early acting days in Hollywood, to his charmed life as television’s beloved Hercules, and where he is today. He recounts the onset of his symptoms, his frightening hospitalization, and his arduous path to recovery. With this honest account of personal tragedy and triumph, Sorbo aims to blaze a trail for those who have ever suffered acute illness or a serious setback in life and are now struggling to find their way back.
