Actor Val Kilmer recently had a tracheotomy because he had throat cancer. His voice has changed since having the surgery. He previously revealed he had cancer in 2017. Luckily, Val is healing and doing very well after having surgery.
He admitted, “It’s just like any other language or dialect. You have to figure out a way to communicate that’s no different than any other acting challenge but it’s just a very unique set of circumstances. I’m doing great, I feel a lot better than I sound.”

It's been a little while. You may have seen or heard some news this past week. To say the least, I've been busy. So many wonderful projects have launched and all the planning and hard work is starting to bloom. It was such a thrill to hear all of the news coming from San Diego Comic Con. I could hear the raucous celebration all the way in NY. It would have been wonderful to be there, though my commitment and dedication to the @twainmania Foundation opened an opportunity to speak at the United Nations, where I was asked to join a group of incredibly smart and caring people to find ways to make this world better. I'm so humbled by the experience and can't thank everyone enough for their generosity and spirit. Still so much more to come. Buckle up!!

Recently, Val reprised his role in Top Gun: Maverick, the Top Gun sequel. The sequel has since been delayed until 2021 in hopes of a theater release. He also has a role in a film called Pay Dirt coming up, where his 28-year-old daughter, Mercedes, plays his daughter in the movie.

His daughter previously said, “I’m so proud to have been in this film and to have worked on this film like not just because my dad is my actual dad, but because I know you don’t really lead with this but you do have now a disability with your voice, and it really meant a lot to me to be able to be involved in this film that centers a disabled actor, or an actor with a disability.”
The plot for Pay Dirt reads “a parolee teams up with his old crew determined to find a buried bag of cash stolen five years ago from a DEA bust gone bad, while being tracked by a retired Sheriff.”
Glad to hear he is doing better after his surgery! We can’t wait to see Top Gun: Maverick and Pay Dirt!
