Actress Catherine Lidstone was hiking near her home in Los Angeles when she learned of an opportunity that, eventually, would make her face seen by millions.

It was on that hike that she bumped into an actor friend who had just landed a role in a new Bible-based television series, The Chosen. At the time, she was filming a series on Fox, Proven Innocent, but the possibility of appearing in a faith-based project about Jesus piqued her interest. After all, it aligned with her Christian faith. It also would provide another job. 

“He was like, ‘I have no idea where this is gonna go if it's gonna succeed or fail. It's a pilot… It's very low budget.’”

The series has grown from a low-budget pilot to a multi-million-dollar global hit.
