Mark is one of my favorite characters because of his connection to Sara, the main character, who is played by my friend Austyn Johnson. I admire their bond and friendship because it’s clear from the start that they’ve known each other for a long time. Because of all of these earthly things, Mark’s faith has waned over time. Doctors say he won’t be able to walk again. Then, as the story progresses, his faith grows stronger, to the point that he asks Sara to pray for him. That’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie because it’s their interaction that delivers the idea and message of the story,” Williams explains.
I wouldn’t be in business if it weren’t for my religion. I’d gone two or three years without scheduling anything and was on the verge of giving up. I was offered a co-lead role in the film THE 15:17 TO PARIS, but I declined. Not only was the film faith-based, but no matter how much I wanted to give up, my mother kept telling me, “We need to pray on this.” I answered, “No, I don’t want to pray on it,” and she replied, “If you pray on it one time, if you don’t book this job, then we’ll leave, we’ll simply stop where we are, and you’ll be an ordinary preteen again.” Because I was waiting for an answer, I prayed for a long time, maybe three to four hours that day.
