Juan Pablo Di Pace, who plays the Messiah in the mini-series, reveals everyone reached for their cellphone cameras to capture the breathtaking moment on set and insists viral video and posts from his castmates are for real and not doctored in any way.

The Argentinian actor tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "It's a cross! The whole journey for this was incredible... I think something really special was happening while we were shooting."
