Actress Karen Abercrombie stunned and elated audiences across the world when she starred in the 2015 hit film "War Room," portraying Miss Clara, an octogenarian with a deep passion for the Lord.
But did you know that Abercrombie is actually decades younger than Miss Clara? That's a fun "War Room" fact that some might not realize, especially considering how convincingly the actress portrayed the beloved character.
"To be able to dive into a character that is different from you in respect with her age ... I had to go deep, get deep, get out of God's way and allow Him to use me as He wanted to," she said. "And it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had in my life, and certainly as an actress."
When asked how Abercrombie was able to portray the role so brilliantly, she was candid and noted that she did so "prayerfully," seeking God as she journeyed through filming "War Room."
"As an actress, it was so delicious for me to have the opportunity, so that I could dig deep and do research to make Miss Clara a believable, three-dimensional character," Abercrombie said. "God had His own plan for the whole thing in that He would use it the way He would use it — and I'm still blown away that He would choose me to do what He allowed me the opportunity to do — take the message of prayer around the world."
