Chuck Norris established himself as a nightmare for all the villains through the roles he played as an actor. An expert in the martial art, Chuck's legacy has continued despite his retirement from acting, and he is still glorified as an undefeatable man and a force to be reckoned.

Also, according to her bio, the couple first met in 1996 when Chuck was an established actor while Gena was still young and struggling to get a steady modeling job. A romance soon pursued between the two, and they eventually got married in an intimate wedding ceremony on 28 November 1998.

At the time, Chuck was at the peak of his career performing the role of a Texas Ranger named Cordell Walker on the CBS' long-running show - Walker, Texas Ranger.
