“I cried when I read the script,” he said. “I really fought hard for this role because I knew deep in my soul – I was so drawn to it.”
He also shared that he really studied the Bible to prepare for the role. He had to do so to embrace the plot of the Christian movie and never expected it would bring so much impact on him.
Baptized On Set
“And it really deepened my faith intensely to the point that when the character got baptized,” he revealed. “I actually, in real life, decided to get baptized.”“… This movie never left me in a sense,” Max further explained. “I feel like my character and my faith will never be where it was before. … It’s so much stronger now that I’ve done this film – that I get to carry it out with my art, being able to spread not only my faith but also the gifts that God has given me.”
Samuel, the lead role in the film, is about a rock star who grew up in church but hated Christians. Later, a life-changing encounter with God redeems him.
The actor stressed that films like this are what people need to see nowadays. He pointed it out because “it’s a film that has morals and spreads a lot of light.”
“It’s really about forgiveness and grace,” Max emphasized. “It’s really about the grace of God.”
According to the report, “Southern Gospel” will be released in theaters on March 10.
