Bruce Marchiano, star of's "The Encounter" series, is known for his many on-screen portrayals of Jesus — an iconic role that has come to define his career. But Marchiano wasn't always a Christian. In fact, his path to faith came after he found success in Hollywood and was soon faced with an essential question: who — or what — would be his 'God?'

"My career was everything," Marchiano said on a recent episode of "Pure Talk."



His success, though eventually eroded during the 1988 writers' strike and, with a lack of Hollywood projects to audition for, Marchiano suddenly found himself "with no career."

"I realized in the pit of that failure that I needed Jesus ... on a hill, overlooking Universal Studios," he said. "It was like I looked up and I looked down and I had to make a decision —who my God was going to be?
