Actor who played Frodo’s Sam is a Lutheran

Sean Astin, who played Samwise Gamgee in the Lord of the Rings movies, has gotten vocal about his Christian faith.  Not only that, he has become a Lutheran.

From ‘Lord of the Rings’ Actor Opens Up About His Christian Faith | TheBlaze.com:

Actor Sean Astin has had a long-standing career in Hollywood. From starring as Mikey in “The Goonies” to his role as Samwise Gamgee in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, he has entertained and inspired audiences for decades. In a new interview with Beliefnet’s John W. Kennedy, Astin recently discussed his career, his faith and a Christian movie he recently filmed called “Mom’s Night Out.”

It may come as a surprise to some that Astin, who has said in the past that he doesn’t wear his faith on his sleeve, is religious. But a close look at his career and his public comments corroborate this very fact. In his discussion with Kennedy, Astin described his faith journey in detail and didn’t hesitate to call himself a faithful Christian.

He detailed his fascinating faith journey — one that encapsulated experiences with Buddhism, Judaism, Catholicism, agnosticism and Protestantism (they all touched him in some way). Today, Astin is a Lutheran, having been officially baptized along with his wife at a church in Indiana.

Here he says how he and his whole family got baptized at his wife’s Lutheran church in Indiana.
