A former Disney star says that playing a role in a Christian film brought him back to faith. David Henrie, who is known for his previous role in the Disney show “Wizards of Waverly Place,” said that he was agnostic before accepting a role in the upcoming Christian film “Little Boy.”
Christian Today reports that Henrie will portray London Busbee, the older brother of a boy who will do anything to end World War II and bring his father back home.
The actor said that he was moved to tears reading the script and knew he had to be in the movie.
The cast and crew all had different beliefs but Henrie says they were a positive influence in his life.
"They were instrumental in changing my life, helping me to find the greater good and awaken the little boy in my heart, and led me back to my faith, led me back to my beliefs, and it has completely changed my life," he told Breathecast.
“I will forever be grateful for little boy because it was the film that saved my life.”
“Little Boy” was written by Alejandro Monteverde and produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. It will hit theatres on April 24.
