There are countless films that draw inspiration from the Bible, including the 2014 film 'Noah', which centers on Noah and his ark, as well as the historical epic 'Ben-Hur', which follows the story of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant, Judah Ben-Hur, living in Jerusalem during the time of Jesus.
These are just a few examples of films that have a religious background. In the picture gallery we show you actors and actresses who have already embodied religious roles.
These stars have already slipped into roles with a religious background
A star who impersonated religious roles several times was Charlton Heston. In the 1950s he acted in two films inspired by the Bible. One of them is the strip The Ten Commandments, published in 1956.It tells of the life of Moses, portrayed by Charlton Heston. But that wasn't his only role.
Also in 'Ben Hur' (1959) he slipped into a role with a religious background. The historical epic tells the story of the fictional Jewish prince and merchant "Judah Ben-Hur", who lived in Jerusalem at the time of Jesus. 'Ben Hur' is still one of the greatest historical films of all time.
