Hello Zazzlers and friends

The Bible is a new TV series. The role of Jesus Christ is portrait by Diogo Morgado, and, yes, he's a Portuguese actor. He's one of our top actors with a career spanning over 16 years in tv, film and stage productions. Now he's portraying the powerful role of Jesus Christ in the epic 10 hour mini-series "The Bible" produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey and premiering March 3, 2013 on The History Channel. Diogo's film credits include a  performance in the title role of Portuguese dictator Antonio De Oliveira Salazar in the hit feature film "A Vida Privada De Salazar".

Salazar's Private Life by Jorge Queiroga (2009), with Diogo Morgado, Soraya Chaves, Margarida Carpinteiro and others. Salazar invented the Estado Novo. This regime started as a result of a nationalist military coup against the Portuguese 1st Republic in 1926. Two years later, Salazar who was in the Catholic party, was called to make part of the military cabinet and to put public finances in order. Later he was appointed prime minister. In 1968 he had an accident from which he never recovered. His regime survived him! The Estado Novo regime collapsed with a revolutionary military coup in 1974, four years after his death.
