I strongly believe many Christians would have watched the movie named “Passion for Christ” and there was a man that acted the role of Jesus Christ in the movie, his name is Jim Caviezel.
Jim Caviezel is a great actor, due to his wonderful performance he exhibited in the movie.
Let’s quickly look briefly into his early Biography :
Jim Caviezel was born in Mount Vernon, Washington, the son of Margaret (née Lavery), a former stage actress and homemaker, and James Caviezel, a chiropractor.
He has a younger brother, Timothy, and three sisters, Ann, Amy, and Erin. He was raised in a tightly knit Catholic family in Conway, Washington.
His surname is Romansh. His father is of Slovak and Swiss descent, while his mother is Irish.
Caviezel portrayed Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson’s 2004 film The Passion of the Christ.
During filming, he was struck by lightning , accidentally scourged, had his shoulder dislocated , and suffered from pneumonia and hypothermia.
Prior to filming, Gibson reportedly warned Caviezel that playing Jesus would hurt his acting career. In 2011, he admitted that good roles had been hard to come by since, but stated that this movie, in particular the role of Jesus Christ, was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Caviezel is a devout Catholic. In an interview, Caviezel talks about the importance of his Catholic faith, the lasting impact that “The Passion” has had on his life, and his special devotion to the Virgin Mary.
During the filming of The Passion in Italy he received daily counsel, Confession, and Holy Communion from a local Catholic priest, with an interpreter.
