Mr T was born Laurence Tureaud but changed his name to Mr T by deed poll so that people would HAVE to call him Mister. After a time working as a bodyguard and a bouncer Mr T won the "World's Toughest Bouncer" contest and caught the eye of Sylvester Stallone who wrote him in to Rocky III.
Mr T went on to appear in another boxing film before taking his most famous role as B A Baracus in the A Team. By now Mr T was hugely popular the world over and began pro-wrestling. However wrestling against the likes of Roddy Piper was nothing compared to his next battle.
In the 1990s Mr T developed a rare form of cancer (ironically called T-Cell Lymphoma) but as you would expect Mr T put up a strong fight and with God's help he beat it. Mr T is a devout Christian and thanks God for giving him the opportunity to meet so many lovely people in the hospital.
