Larry Hagman - Larry Hagman Will Bounce Back From Cancer, Says Strong

Larry Hagman's Dallas co-star Brenda Strong is convinced the veteran actor will win his cancer battle, insisting: "He'll bounce back."
The 80-year-old star announced in October (11) he is receiving treatment for the illness but vowed to continue shooting his scenes for the hit show's relaunch next year (12).
Strong has been drafted in as a new addition to the Ewing family - playing Bobby's wife Ann - and she's revealed Hagman is bravely fighting his illness and is keeping a positive mood on set.
She tells the Hollywood Reporter, "You know, his spirit astounds me. This man is so incredibly resilient. I have been doing scenes with him and his eyes are sparkling and he is on top of his game. And I know he is dealing with a tremendous amount of things in order to combat and deal with his health, but he is absolutely resilient and incredibly present and talented and it hasn't really impacted his ability to work per se.
"They have scheduled him very well around his treatment and he is showing up... So I am really impressed with his strength, not only physically, but he is made of iron, that man. It is steel. So, we are really proud of him... He is extraordinary and I see him having no trouble bouncing back."
