"I think the film had such a profound impact on culture because we knew how to reach all audiences and that we were not so specific in our approach Jesus"Powell told the History Channel.
Today the actor has 73 years and now far from autographs and flashes, is devoted to literature. He vehemently denies having been on psychiatric treatment for believing that he is Jesus, having fulfilled his role.
Claim Robert Powell, that after the series, decided never again to use long hair or beard. "However, although I always try to minimize it, I can not help but be surprised that they interrupt me in the streets of different parts of the world, even with short hair, glasses and no beard," he added.
