Sally Quinn, of the Washington Post, recently sat down with Roma Downey to discuss the actress’s faith life. Downey, a devout Catholic, recently released a new educational DVD series for preschoolers called Little Angels. The series follows twins Alex and Zoe as they learned about the alphabet, animals, and important values. According to the press release:
LITTLE ANGELS is an animated DVD series created exclusively for preschool-aged children to teach not only practical learning skills, like ABCs and 1,2,3s, but also to introduce them to the spiritual, moral and ethical principles of the Bible.
Downey and her husband, Mark Burnett, are also co-producing a 10-hour biblical docu-drama that is set for release next year on the History Channel. The series is currently in production. Downey and Burnett are also involved with Bible 360, an interactive biblical experience that I covered here last month.
I have to say that I admire anyone who steps out in faith, especially in the often blinding lights of the entertainment industry. Roma has long been and continues to be an inspiration. Blessings, Roma!
