Kelsey Grammer is in a new film, Jesus Revolution, about a revival movement from the 1970s. Naturally, the question of his own beliefs came up.
Despite the open hostility Hollywood has toward Christian belief, he didn’t pull any punches in his answer.
Grammer will play real-life pastor Chuck Smith, who eventually founded his own movement within Christianity that eventually had over 1,000 churches worldwide.
Reflecting on his faith ahead of the film’s release last month, Grammer said he would no longer be apologising for his faith.
Speaking to USA Today, he said: ‘Jesus made a difference in my life. That’s not anything I’ll apologise for. I have found great peace in my faith and in Jesus.’
The Frasier actor also remarked upon a period in his life when he temporarily lost his faith, after the death of his sister, who was just 18 when she died.
‘Sometimes I rejected my faith, sometimes I rejected God even, in a period of being pretty angry about it.’ His sister, Karen, was murdered in 1975.
Paying tribute to his faith in Jesus Revolution, Grammer revealed that the subject of the film was inspired by his own faith and the role Christianity has played in his life.
‘It’s really uplifting. It’s a good movie. My wife and I saw it together. She was just dissolved in tears and said, “It’s the best thing you’ve ever done.”‘ — Metro
