Speaking as part of a cast panel for the upcoming Christian film “Do You Believe,” actress Cybill Shepherd revealed that she has been reconnecting with Jesus after long forsaking her Christian upbringing.
“I was born a Christian, sang in the choir then I lost touch with my savior Jesus Christ. I stopped talking to Him and praying,” she told the audience. “Then I just started talking to Jesus and I started to feel really good and I got the offer to do this film.”
Do You Believe? is Pure Flix Entertainment’s first project since the breakout hit God’s Not Dead. The movie – due out next spring – follows a group of characters struggling with various problems. Shepherd’s character Teri Newton and husband JD, played by Lee Majors, are grieving the death of a daughter. As Teri, JD and the other characters’ stories begin to intersect, their journeys reveal the “redemptive power of the cross.”
Shepherd, a Nashville native who began singing in church at age 8, said it “gives me chills” to think how she became involved with the project after reconnecting with Jesus.
