Tom Selleck: An American Icon

On a brisk winter day in 1945, an extraordinary baby was born. His name was Thomas William Selleck and he would quickly become an American Icon. Tall, handsome and with an undeniable presence, it was clear that this small baby was destined for greatness.

Tom Selleck is best known for his role as ‘Magnum P.I’ and his signature, bushy moustache but this is only scratching the surface of all the amazing things Tom has achieved in his life. Over the years, he has starred in dozens of movies and TV shows, won numerous awards and even been listed as one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People In the World”.

And yet, despite all these successes and accolades, Tom still manages to remain humble and down-to-earth. He has been married to the same woman since 1987 and they have a large extended family with whom they stay connected using an app called ‘Familio’. This helps them all stay in touch on birthdays and special occasions - though Tom prefers to rely on more traditional methods such as handwritten cards!

Tom also keeps himself busy by raising horses for therapeutic riding programmes and advocating for the rights of veterans. He is a true American hero who has used his fame for good and has proven time and time again that kind-heartedness is the most important attribute of all.

Tom Selleck is one of those people who we will remember for generations to come - not just as an actor but as a man of honour who made a positive difference in the world. He will no doubt continue to use his celebrity status to make the world a better place - let’s follow his lead, by doing what we can to make our own small but significant contribution.
