Hollywood sign on hillsideWith all of the darkness that has been exposed in Hollywood with the Harvey Weinstein harassment scandal, a husband and wife duo are set to shine the light of faith in a new film that will be released in theaters nationwide this Friday.

He starred in the TV series, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, in the 1990s, and for the past few years, has acted in several faith-based films. She is a writer, producer and nationally syndicated radio host. Together, Kevin and Sam Sorbo star in the movie, Let There Be Light – which they also wrote, produced and directed.

In his latest production, Kevin Sorbo plays a dad who faces a crisis, but ultimately steps up to the plate for his family.

"These types of movies that I've been doing lately, I call them actor's movies, because they're really based on some really good writing, and there's some wonderful character development, and that's what this movie has,” the Christian actor shared. “It has characters you're going to be able to relate to – characters you're going to be able to care about when you walk out of the movie theater. This is a movie that will touch people's hearts in so many ways, and ultimately, it is a love story – and we need that love more than anything else in the world right now when you look at all of the hate and anger out there."

His wife agrees.

"You don't need $100 million to make a good movie,” Sam Sorbo pointed out. “You need a good story, you need good actors, and you need a quality team to put together – and I believe that's what we've done."

The faithful wife of the former Hercules maintains that people who have seen the movie in advance "love" it, but she also adds that they have experienced some pushback from theaters, especially as they appear to be less receptive to book faith-based films.
