Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) was played by a very handsome man…
Lise in Montreal sent this great story about a year ago (my humblest apologies for posting it so late, my friend) of how she became a Kevin fan. Please enjoy!
This is how it happened:
I would watch every Friday night on CBS a vampire series I liked very much, “Forever Knight.” It would play at 11:30 pm, and that was in the 1990s.
Then one week, they removed the show and put “Hercules” at first, and I must admit, I wasn’t very pleased, but, I watched it. I got hooked immediately. I always loved Ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt and mythology in general.
It didn’t hurt that Hercules was played by a very handsome man whom I found out was the same age as me and single at the time. Not that I ever expected to meet him or anything.
So, I got hooked to the show and would watch every episode. I also got interested in “Xena,” which was an offspring from “Hercules.” (I mean here that one of the characters who was on “Hercules” got her own show.)
I even watch reruns of “Hercules” to this day, and even bought a book about Hercules. Even felt a bit sad when Kevin got married, but, I guess all fans do feel that way a bit, but, I got over it.
I did check out “Andromeda,” and watched it for a while, but on account of being extremely busy, I did miss some shows.
I had seen Kevin in Meet the Spartans, and I must admit that he was my favorite in the movie.
I have the VHS tape of Kull and still watch it.
So, now you know the full story.
