God actor Morgan Freeman seeks answers in Jerusalem

He, like many thousands before him, came to Jerusalem with questions.

Morgan Freeman at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City – one of Christianity’s most holy of places.

And somewhere the 78-year-old Academy Award-winner – who has played God himself on screen – sought answers about faith.

SOUNDBITE: Hollywood Actor, Morgan Freeman, saying (English):

“I’m primarily interested in “why”, what is the “why” of it? So we go to all of these places, and we talk to theologians, we talk to historians, we talk to theologists, we talk to, what’s that other group of people? (Audio off screen: “believers”) yeah, and we are trying to just find out.”

Freeman was shooting a documentary for National Geographic and Highlight Films, which is he presenting and executive producing.

“The Story of God” has already shot in locations in Egypt, Guatemala and Turkey, while India is reportedly also on the itinerary.

Worshippers and tourists at the Church normally in awe of God found themselves distracted by Freeman.

The Hollywood legend meanwhile took his chance for photos of his own.

The excitement also offered a reprieve from the violence that has surged in Jersulem recently, following clashes over access to the al-Aqsa mosque compound, a site revered by Muslims and Jews.

Freeman himself declined to comment on the conflict.

SOUNDBITE: Hollywood Actor, Morgan Freeman, saying (English):

“I don’t have a message for anybody. No, we’re just here doing a documentary.”

“The Story of God” is set to air in 2016.
