    "The Chosen" star Elizabeth Tabish admitted that before she landed a lead role on the hit faith-based series, she was at a dark time in her life and was suffering a depression, feeling skeptical about whether God was even there.

    Tabish, who scored the role of Mary Magdalene in the series that explores Jesus through those close to him, said she was "pretty depressed" and was ready to walk away from acting before she got the part, The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN's Faithwire) shared in a recent interview. However, now she sees there was a reason for the pain she went through and has a new belief in God's love.

    "I was not working enough to really make ends meet," Tabish said. "I was barely making rent and I was in a depression at that time."

    She said she had decided if she didn't get the role, she was done and was going to look for something else. However, that didn't end up happening, and she said it's "been really hard to ignore" that this whole experience has been something very special for her.



    "I try to be very rational about things," Tabish explained. "And over time, it's been really hard to ignore that there's something really special about this experience for me. I feel like I wasn't able to - I wouldn't have been able to connect with the Lilith portion of [Mary Magdalene] had I not gone through some painful things."

    "Because of that, I'm realizing ... God has been there the whole time," she added. "There are these moments in the show where I'm actually saying that: 'In the depths, in the heights, You are there.' So there's been these really sweet, sort of idiosyncratic things for me personally throughout this show that are constant reminders that God's love is real. It's a real thing and I've been slowly opening up to it."

    Season 1, which was released in 2019, "was the #1 highest crowd-funded entertainment project of all-time, raising $10 million from over 19,000 people," according to a press release, as previously reported. "Over $40 million in production costs funded for Seasons 2 and 3 via the disruptive pay it forward model."

    The trailer for Season 3 dropped Monday on YouTube and became the number one trending video on the platform. The first two episodes of the season will be shown together on the big screen in November, with the entire series later available, free to fans to watch on the app and streaming like they always do, with a message about paying it forward.
