Terry Crews is a former American footballer player turned actor who became well-known for his roles in several popular television sitcoms and game shows besides films. Crews played in the ‘National Football League’ as a defensive end and linebacker. He ended his rather mediocre career in football to pursue an acting career that proved more profitable. He made his debut in the early 2000s and followed it up with quite a few other appearances that got him public attention and recognition. He also appeared in a number of television shows, including a highly-popular reality show and his own reality series starring his entire family. As a model in television commercials for a popular brand of aftershave, he won the hearts of a lot of people. Crews has emerged as a vocal supporter for women’s rights and is an activist against sexual atrocities, striking an emotional chord with his audience by sharing the experience of abuse that his family suffered at the hands of his violent father. The ‘Time’ magazine included him in the list of people named ‘Person of the Year’ in 2017 for his courage in sharing with the public his experience of sexual assault.
