As most Xenites know, the lovely and talented Kevin Smith, who played Ares God of War on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, and also Young Hercules died shortly after Xena finished, while he was shooting a movie. It is a great loss, both to the world at large, and to the entertainment industry. Kevin, you are sorely missed, but know that you did not live a unfullied life. Your career as an actor was one filled with success and acheivement, and I am sure that you got much happiness out of it. I am very sorry that I never got to meet you in person, but alas, that is life. Here lies my tribute to the wonderful Kevin Tod Smith.
