Dallas star Larry Hagman received a frightening cancer diagnosis last year, just a few weeks shy of filming the re-launch of the popular series. In the time since, a lot has changed for the 81-year-old TV veteran.
"I had a bad patch there last year," he tells ET matter-of-factly of his October 2011 throat cancer diagnosis. While it wasn't the first time he'd been plagued by the disease, Hagman reveals co-star Linda Gray's insistence he pursue the vegan lifestyle has changed his life.
"I feel better for it," Hagman raves. "More agile. I mean, if you could call it 'agile' at 81.
I'm doing pretty well and I like [the diet]. I'm thriving on it."
