For any movie to be successful, you need quality actors who can bring the story to life. One of the hardest working and most versatile actors in Christian films today is Kevin Sorbo.
While coming to fame in the role of “Hercules” in the TV series of the same name, it is Sorbo’s journey of faith that has truly defined his career. One of his brightest projects, “Abel’s Field,” is an inspiring story of hope during difficulty.
Getting to Know Kevin Sorbo
Sorbo was born in Minnesota to hard-working, down-to-earth parents who instilled in him the work ethic he demonstrates to this day. He worked through college and after making commercials and getting small parts on shows like “Murder She Wrote” in the 1980s, he eventually landed his breakout role starring in “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.”
During the fifth season of the series, however, Sorbo suffered three strokes and an aneurysm. Recovery took over a year. This didn’t stop Sorbo from working, however.
Sorbo has talked openly about the difficulty in Hollywood of getting parts or even finding opportunities to read for roles once it became known that he had become a Christian. Rather than bemoaning his difficulties, however, Sorbo began working more in independent and faith-based films. Where Hollywood lost a great actor, the Christian film industry gained an inspirational, dedicated addition. Below, you'll see some powerful Kevin Sorbo movies you can stream now!
