The Chosen new series-coming to a cinema near you

A leading actor from acclaimed faith-based TV series The Chosen says that people are ‘hungry’ for more of the Gospel message-both inside and outside the Church.
 
Los Angeles-based actress and filmmaker Liz Tabish, who plays Mary Magdalene in the hit series, believes that the time is right for the story of Jesus’ life, as portrayed in The Chosen, to make a huge impact on people.
 
“People are hungry for it. It’s the type of show which people are wanting-it wouldn’t have happened without crowdfunding, pay it forward etc,” she told CCR.
 
The Chosen, the first ever series based on the life of Jesus and his followers, has become something of a cult classic, with the first series being funded through crowdfunding -£10 million was given by an eye-catching 19,000 people.
 
Audiences will be able to see this cult series in cinemas, with the first two episodes of season three being shown in 200 Odeon and Vue cinemas around the UK from 18th November.
 
Speaking of the new season 3, Liz Tabish believes that watching the episodes on the big screen will be ‘wonderful.’
 
“Everything is getting bigger and the masses suddenly know about Jesus and the struggles for his followers are getting more difficult,” she said.
 
“I think the scope of the project is getting bigger, so it will be really cool to see it on a big screen, and to watch it together will be wonderful. At the end of it, there is still a message pf peace and love, which is the core of what Jesus is teaching.”

Speaking of the impact of Mary Magdalene, Liz says she has learnt a lot from her own character. “(I’ve learned) that it’s ok not to be perfect. There’s a scene in season 2 where she comes back to Jesus. He forgives her and that’s something I come back to. We don’t have to be perfect and we really can’t be perfect. Just giving him your heart is enough,” she said, adding that her impact on women has gone beyond churchgoers.
 
“Women who have reached out have recognised themselves in her,” she said.
 
“Addicts who have watched the show see hope in her story. They see that there is so much more beyond and after addiction, that there is so much joy in life if you seek it and want it. It really is great to play this character who continues to struggle and to show that none of this is easy and it’s worth it. There is life beyond pain.”
 
Directed by Dallas Jenkins and distributed by Angel Studios, The Chosen became the No. 1 crowdfunded media project in history in 2019.
 
Tickets can be booked here.
