Last week, the movie “Southern Gospel,” which tells the true story of singer Samuel Allen, was released, featuring actor, Max Ehrich. This faith-based film displays Allen’s journey from drugs to Jesus, which ultimately inspired Ehrich to be baptized on the movie set.
Why Was Max Ehrich Baptized on a Movie Set?
If you’re a soap opera fan, you may know Max Ehrich from “The Young and the Restless.”
Or maybe you’re a Demi Lovato fan. Then you know Max Ehrich as the singer’s former fiancée. That’s sort of where the story of this baptism starts.
The 31-year-old actor, who dated Lovato from March 2020 to July 2020 and then became engaged, sadly saw a split with the singer only two months later.
Sadly, tabloids focused substantially on the couple’s rise and fall, which made a hard time even more difficult.
Thankfully, during the same year of the split, Max Ehrich was on the movie set for “Southern Gospel” because the role required him to spend a lot of time in the Bible.
The actor talked about his role in the film with Leah Klett here:
When pondering the impact of the film on his life, Ehrich said the film came “during a very specific time in my life and I’m very grateful that I had that movie there.”
It was that pain and his role that led to him being baptized.
“My faith increased immensely…I think, just to get in the headspace, I was reading the Bible so much and I’d say that I definitely have grown so much as a person just from the experience.”
