Diogo Morgado portrayed Jesus in both The Bible miniseries on the History Channel as well as the soon-to-come movie Son of God. Recently, in an interview given to Voice of America, he talked about how he was basically educating and motivating people. 

In the beginning, he just wanted to be an actor and excel in any genre. But after an unforgettable experience he had at the Wailing Wall, where he saw a father and son praying for a long time together, Morgado decided he must play an iterative function in this world. 

From then on he was a man on a mission. He wanted kids to learn the basics of religion via visual cues. Even if they don’t read much it doesn’t matter for they can pick up the same cultural influences from films and other media. 

In Morgado’s view, the Bible is the most important holy book and it should be the central linchpin in the lives of today’s youngsters. Via documentaries, films and television shows presenting the story of Jesus Christ, the little ones could gain valuable knowledge of the Savior. 

In particular, Morgado wants to portray Jesus in his humane and loving guise. This would make him a source of inspiration for virtually everyone. Since Morgado spent his life as a devout Christian, he wants to let others know of the personal experience he has of Jesus as someone who is close to his heart. The presence of Christ was a very real encounter in his life. 

Meanwhile, the role of Satan has been discarded for now in the movie Son of God. The reason is that the facial features of the actor who was to play Satan bear an uncanny resemblance to President Obama.  

Son of God producer Roma Downey told the Hollywood Reporter , "It gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting-room floor. This is now a movie about Jesus, the son of God, and the devil gets no more screen time."
