A well-known actor from "The Chosen" shares his journey of faith and reveals his personal encounter with Jesus while playing his role in this hit Bible-based series.

He then shared a milestone event that happened last September when he was invited to a church conference.
"And it all piled up until last September, where I was invited to a church conference where the next thing I knew, a group of people surrounded me...and imposed the rules on me. hands and began to pray. And I could experience what it was like to feel the Holy Spirit moving from the outside in and it ignited my body."
This experience was overwhelming for him. He felt a profound transformation and said he felt like a new person. He expresses his gratitude towards the series and his role in it.
"My mind is blown by what happened. So the show was a blessing and I loved playing it. But it's definitely the channel I can't help but talk about."
Currently, Shakoour and the rest of the cast and crew are filming the fourth season of The Chosen.
