There is another, perhaps less famous, Kevin Smith
-- Kevin Tod Smith of Auckland
, New Zealand
Though his dream was to play professional rugby, he stumbled (almost literally) into acting while sidelined by a rugby injury in college. His girlfriend (later wife) coerced him into trying out for a musical, and he eventually pursued acting professionally.
This Kevin Smith is most famous for his many appearances on the campy TV shows "Hercules" and "Xena", most commonly portraying Ares, the God of war (though like most everyone on those shows, he occasionally had other roles as well).
Kevin Tod Smith was born on March 16, 1963 and died February 15, 2002 after falling from a height of roughly six stories ten days prior, on the set of Warriors of Virtue II. He is survived by his wife Suzanne and three children.
