Best known for his roles as Hercules in Hercules, the Legendary Journey’s and Captain Dylan Hunt in Gene Roddenberry’s, Andromeda, Kevin has been a driving force in Hollywood for over three decades. In 1997, during his tenure as the strongest man in the world, Sorbo suffered three strokes resulting from an aneurism in his left shoulder. He tells the compelling story of his grueling recovery in his book, True Strength: My Journey from Hercules to Mere Mortal and How Nearly Dying Saved My Life.
The recipient of numerous professional awards, Sorbo was honored by Movie Guide for “Most Inspirational Performance of the Year” for What If… His tremendous performance in God’s Not Dead, which was dollar-for-dollar one of the most successful Hollywood films ever, transformed and refocused the Hollywood star. Speaking publicly as a stroke survivor inspired him to talk more openly about his views on life. Passionate almost to a fault, in 2019, Kevin was the third-highest fundraiser for pro-life causes in America.
Continuing in his dedication to advancing the gospel, Sorbo directed and stared in the feature film, Let There Be Light, which he co-produced with his wife, Sam, and Dan Gordon. The team’s second movie together, Miracle in East Texas, hits theaters this fall. The Sorbo’s home educate their three children in Florida. www.kevinsorbo.net/news.htm
