The Chosen | – The Cast of The Chosen Talk about Season 2

You asked questions and The Chosen cast answered them. This one’s especially loaded—What does Liz think is the hardest part about playing Mary? Why does Alaa think Simon Z would throw his lifetime devotion out the window? What does Noah think of Andrew’s breakdown?

You’ll hear from the actors who play Mother Mary, Tamar, Shmuel, Thaddeus, Big James, and John. And, if that’s not enough, somehow our writers Tyler & Ryan snuck in there too. Make sure you watch until the end for a special appearance…

About The Author

The Chosen WHY A TV SERIES ABOUT JESUS? We've been making movies for some of the biggest studios in Hollywood for 20 years. But a subject this important shouldn't be entrusted to Hollywood. It needs to be made by us. Isaiah 43:19 says, "Behold, I am doing a new thing..." The Chosen is a new thing. * How it was financed is new: We're the #1 highest crowd-funded media project of all time -- over $10 million from over 19,000 people. * The content is new: We're the first-ever multi-season show about the life of Christ. * The way to watch it is new: We're the first show to have our own app that connects directly to your streaming devices. No subscription needed. Just search "The Chosen" where you get apps and download to your phone. * How it's reaching the world is new: The show is free, but by "paying it forward," you help ensure people around the world can see it -- we're currently in every country. Welcome to a new thing!

  1. Why in the world would anyone WANT to move to California? If she is hoping to get into the Hollywood scene then all my respect for her is gone! You can't serve two Masters. California is a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah and anyone choosing to move there should have their motives questioned.

  2. DALLAS Thank you for doing these EXTRAS and letting us get to know these extraordinary actors and people. I love the so many ways you let us see the people of the bible as real people…… just like us. I pray for you to be strong and continue…. LOVE and PEACE

  3. I always refer to the slo-mo shots as the Bad-to-the-Bone shot. When the in 80s and 90s showed the good guys gearing up to take care of business they always played Bad-to-the-Bone. On Miami Vice it was In the Air Tonight.

  4. I don't know if Dallas reads these comments but if he is I would like to recommend he find a role for Brad Heller. I just watched "The Ride" on Amazon because I noticed that the guy who plays Gaius, Kirk B. R. Waller, was in it and I liked him in The Chosen. The other character in The Ride was played by Brad Heller and he was amazing. If anyone reading this hasn't seen The Ride, check it out. It's wonderful.

  5. Such an amazing project! Such amazing people working on it. Thank you Dallas and the entire "The Chosen" team.
    There are all fantastic…..but I think Austins character Nathaniel is an unsung hero. I feel like his story, is my story in a lot of ways. Keep up the strong work. I will be praying that you have EVERYTHING you need to keep this rolling forward for His glory.

  6. This show changed my life, I’m a trucker, spend a lot of time alone,, watching on the app is so easy,, I’m blessed,, I’ll never think of Jesus the same way again,, he’s real, the Apostles are real,, Mary Magdalene is real, and the Blessed Virgin Mother is awesome

  7. Each actor is perfect for the person they play.
    I love Vanessa as Mary. Vanessa is precious and loving. I love all the other actors of course, equally. They are kind and heartfelt and they immerse in the moment. Miracles are happening in The Chosen. I don’t see a chat. So I said this in comments!
    This is a huge blessing!

  8. You know this is just an opinion,,,,,but i think that not only was this one of the greatest surprises of the Holy Spirit of this Century,….we who are on the receiveing end have to say who'da thunk we would have this in this sick age we live in,,,,,here comes the Redeemer of it all,,,,,and He sure is the Top Dog of this Series,,,,We on the receiving end are so super grateful and glad to play it forward,,,,and Jonathan Roumie …well ..there are no adquate words,,,,He and Jim Caviziel are on the same boat,,,,,they make Jesus so real,,,,and I know I speak for millions of us,,,,Viva!!Viva!! Viva.,,,,,you hve given to this media the message that i get anyway,,,it's one beggar telling the other beggar(that's us) where the bread is, No one on this earth could never have played John the Baptust (*see i don't even know his actor's name)and no on onthis earth could play our Blessed Savior than Mr, Roumie,,,and does so much to make the scriipture so alive,,,i can never read them again without thinking of all i've seen,,,,I think about years ago,,,,none of us would have ever dreamed this was flooding the earth and theobvious outpouring of the Holy Spirit,,,,what a gift,,,,whoever watches this cannot help but be not only mesmerized but as John , my friends brother put it so right,,,,His sister Rodina convinced him to watch,,,,and his comment was " iF Jesus Christ was like this(and he was) John just never knew,,,,well John said,,,i'd have no problem following him,,,,It's just we neverknew,,,,and now we do,,,,,His life wasn't easy and if we follow Him ,,,ours won't be an easy ride either,,,,but the benefits are out of this world,,,,,Maranatha, Lord Jesus, Maranatha and soon

  9. I have shared The Chosen with many many co-workers who have all said how blessed the feeling watching every episode and it is true! We talk about the Scriptures and life of Christ and thank you all for helping us grow closer to our Lord and Savior!
