After appearing in "Jesus of Nazareth", British actor Robert Powell became a contemporary image of Christ.
Blue and crystal eyes took him away Robert Powell to fulfill the role of Christ in the television miniseries "Jesus of Nazareth" directed by Franco Zeffirelli, and from there the iconic image has changed forever.
The actor arrived at fame with a popular work from 1977 and 41 years after the premiere of this film, the work is still remembered.

"I think the movie 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 to Jesus"Powell told the History Channel.
Today, the actor has 73 years and now far from autographs and flashes, it is devoted to literature. He strongly denies being a psychiatrist to believe that he is Jesus after fulfilling his role.
Confirm Robert Powellthat after the series he decided never to use again long hair or beard. "Although I always try to minimize it, I can not stop wondering that they stop me on the streets of various parts of the world, even with short hair, glasses and without a beard," he added.
