Chuck Norris was born on March 10, 1940; his birth place was Ryan, Oklahoma. His parents were, Wilma Scarberry (the mother) and Carlos Ray Norris (the father) who had several jobs which are bus driver/truck driver, and mechanic. Chuck's grandfather and grandmother were both from Ireland. Also Chuck's other grandparents were Native Americans, so in other words, Chuck Norris is half Irish and half Native American. Chuck's birth name was Carlos Ray Norris , before he changed it to Chuck Norris (a nick name that was given to him during his service in the Korean War) Chuck wasn't the only child though, he has two younger brothers, Weiland who now passed away (died heroically warning his troops of an enemy ambush) and Aaron who is a Hollywood director. Chuck learned the martial arts while stationed as an MP in South Korea . Chuck Norris is the only westerner to earn the 8th degree grand master black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do.

Chuck has starred in such films as, Delta Force, Delta Force 2, The Missing in Action Trilogy, Lone Wolf McQuade, Code of Silence and many other police movies.
