What The Cast Of Hercules Looks Like Today

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys was silly,
campy, and a lot of fun to watch. The ’90s TV phenomenon earned a dedicated
worldwide fanbase—and generated the successful spinoffs Young Hercules and Xena: Warrior
Princess. Let’s take a look back at the pantheon of
stars from the Hercules universe, and find out where they are today. Kevin Sorbo From 1995 to 1999, Kevin Sorbo starred as
the title character of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. In the show, Hercules adventured through ancient
Europe, confronting evil beings and other challenges along the way. Despite facing challenges with his personal
health—like the three strokes he suffered because of an aneurysm in his shoulder—Sorbo
has continued acting, starring in projects like the sci-fi drama series Andromeda from
2000 to 2005. More recently, Sorbo had a recurring role
in the CW series Supergirl, and he’s lined up nearly a dozen films for release in 2017
and 2018. Michael Hurst New Zealand native Michael Hurst co-starred
in The Legendary Journeys as Iolaus, friend and sidekick to Hercules. Like Sorbo, Hurst reprised his role in a few
episodes of the Hercules spinoff show, Xena: Warrior Princess. He has continued acting since Hercules, and
he’s also turned his attention to writing and directing. He’s recently directed episodes of Ash vs.
Evil Dead and the New Zealand show Westside. Lucy Lawless What started out as a guest role on Hercules:
The Legendary Journeys turned into a career-making move for Lucy Lawless when she was given her
own spin-off series, Xena: Warrior Princess. Lawless has maintained a successful acting
career since then, appearing in dozens of films and shows. Notably, she guest-starred in 16 episodes
of Battlestar Galactica and in the Starz series Spartacus. Lawless also had a recurring role on Parks
and Recreation, and a major part on Ash vs Evil Dead. Robert Trebor When Hercules wasn’t partnered with Iolaus
for an adventure, he frequently traveled with the crafty salesman Salmoneus, played by Robert
Trebor. Trebor has continued to appear in television
shows and on the big screen, landing a list of parts that includes guest roles in Boomtown
and The Devil’s Rejects. Most recently, Trebor played “The Producer”
in the 2016 Coen brothers comedy Hail, Caesar! Jeffrey Thomas For 16 episodes of Hercules, Jeffrey Thomas
played the legendary ruler King Jason. Thomas later appeared as Titus in the Starz
series Spartacus and the dwarf king Thror in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. In 2015, he starred in the horror film The
Dead Room. More recently, Thomas appeared in The Light
Between Oceans alongside Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender. Kevin Tod Smith New Zealand actor Kevin Tod Smith landed a
major recurring role on Hercules and the Xena spinoff as Ares, the God of War. Between the two shows, he starred in over
50 episodes, often filming for both productions at the same time. Smith seemed to have a promising career ahead
of him, and was cast to appear in the Bruce Willis war drama Tears of the Sun, but he
passed away before he could film the part. Smith accidentally fell from a prop tower
and suffered major injuries which led to his death on February 15th, 2002. Bruce Campbell Although he’s much better known for his role
as Ash in the Evil Dead franchise, Bruce Campbell starred in The Legendary Journeys and Xena:
Warrior Princess as Autolycus—the self-proclaimed “King of Thieves” who occasionally assists
Hercules and Xena on their adventures. Campbell was also an executive producer for
Hercules. Campbell has appeared in dozens of films and
television shows in the years since. Most recently, he returned to his roots by
starring in the Starz comedy/action series Ash vs Evil Dead. Alexandra Tydings For 10 episodes of Hercules and 11 episodes
of Xena, Alexandra Tydings played Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and half-sister
of Hercules. Despite the “dumb blonde” stereotype she portrayed
as Aphrodite, Tydings is one smart cookie. She largely retired from acting after Xena
and turned her attention to writing and directing. Gina Torres While she’s better known these days for her
role as Zoe in Firefly, many fans will remember Gina Torres as the pirate Nebula from Hercules. Torres has had a strong Hollywood career since
Hercules, landing major roles in 24, Cleopatra 2525, and Alias. More recently, she appeared in the ABC series
The Catch and provided the voice of Ikora Rey in the video game Destiny 2. Joel Tobeck While he primarily played the Greek god Strife
in The Legendary Journeys, Joel Tobeck also appeared as Strife’s cousin Deimos in both
Hercules and Xena. In addition to a significant role in Sons
of Anarchy, Tobeck later reunited with several of his castmates for other projects, including
Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless in Ash vs Evil Dead. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our
