Actor Joseph Fiennes, star of the new movie, “Risen” — a feature film about the aftermath of Jesus’ crucifixion — told The Church Boys podcast on Thursday that he was “deeply affected” while filming a scene involving Christ’s death.
“When I rode up and saw [Jesus] on the cross, it’s a very, very powerful and emotional feeling,” Fiennes said. “It went against what my character should be feeling, but somewhere deep inside of me I was deeply affected by that.
”The actor portrays Clavius, a fictional Roman military official who does not believe that Christ is the Messiah, and who is tasked with solving the mystery surrounding why Jesus’ body disappeared after the crucifixion.
