Extra! Extra! Fun Facts From Blair Underwood! (GT Connext)

We chatted with Blair Underwood for our March/April 2012 issue of Gospel Today. He told us about his new film, Woman Thou Art Loosed: On The 7th Day, and much more.

He also shared some fun facts that we couldn\’t fit into the magazine. Check ‘em out!

  • The film, Woman Thou Art Loosed: On The 7th Day, was shot on-location in New Orleans.
  • In his new film, Blair Underwood plays hubby and wifey with actress Sharon Leal. This is not the first time that Blair Underwood and Sharon Leal have been cast as spouses, though—in 2004, the two co-starred as a married couple in an NBC television series called LAX.

  • Blair Underwood recounts that his new role in Woman Thou Art Loosed: On The 7th Day actually came about through Facebook! He and Director Neema Barnette are long-time friends who hadn\’t connected in nearly ten years. She reached out on Facebook and, based on his respect for her work, he took a look at the script, liked it and the rest is history!
  • In addition to acting, Blair Underwood is also a director. His first film, Second Coming, is a modern-day depiction of Christ coming to Earth in this era.
