Back in the 1990s, Kevin Sorbo set the TV screen alight as the eponymous hero of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. The actor looked set to go on to even bigger and better things, too, when he later took a role in sci-fi hit Andromeda. But since then, Sorbo has seemingly vanished from Hollywood entirely. So, why don’t we see the star anymore? Well, it turns out that there’s a good reason – and Sorbo hasn’t completely given up on the world of entertainment, either.
Yes, as fans know, Sorbo made his name in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. The show – which was shot in New Zealand – proved a massive hit, soaring in the ratings during its six-season run. Sorbo’s likeness even found its way into many kids’ homes in the form of action figures, while Hercules: The Legendary Journeys itself ultimately sparked a host of other series that were set in ancient times.
