Kevin Sorbo: The Meaning Of 'True Strength' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

For years actor Kevin Sorbo was the picture of health and strength playing the titular role in the action-adventure series "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys". In between seasons 4 and 5 of the show the star experienced an aneurysm in his shoulder. This would later trigger three strokes leaving Sorbo to battle for his life.

After an intense rehabilitation, wherein he had to learn how to walk again, Sorbo's perspective on life began to change. In his own words, "I literally went from a guy in his 30s, in as good as shape as most athletes in their early 20s, to a guy who was 90 years old within seconds." Sorbo began turning his attentions away from maintaining the Herculean image he had crafted and started looking inward.

In his new book "True Strength", Sorbo aims to share his never-say-die story and what it takes to come back from an acute illness. AOL's daily series "You've Got" recently caught up with the former fictional demigod and got his perspective on what it really means to have "True Strength".
