WATCH: Actor Joseph Fiennes Talks About Who Jesus Is to Him

Aleteia - published on 02/26/16 - updated on 06/07/17

Aleteia's exclusive interview with the lead actor of the new film, "Risen"

The much-anticipated film, Risen, is now out in theaters, and its lead actor Joseph Fiennes sat down recently in Rome with Aleteia’s Diane Montagna to talk about it. The movie depicts the first 40 days following the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In addition to his thoughts about the movie, the British actor talks about Mary, the mother of Jesus, in the film; his family’s recent meeting with Pope Francis; and who Jesus is for him. The full written commentary about this exclusive interview previously published at Aleteia can be found here.
