Christian actress Letitia Wright calls out media that omit her God quotes

by Tola Mbakwe

In a tweet posted on Monday afternoon she said sarcastically: "It's super cute when journalists/interviewers for magazines leave out the massive part where I give God the glory for the success/ achievements in my life.

Haha I still love you and God will still be praised."

By Tuesday morning the tweet garnered almost 11,000 likes and almost 2,000 retweets supporting her statement and encouraging her to still be open about her faith.

 

In February 2019, Wright won the BAFTA's rising star award. During her speech she thanked God for pulling her out of depression.

The 25-year-old started her speech saying: "I identity myself as a child of God and I can't get up here without thanking God.

"A few years ago I saw myself in a deep state of depression and I literally wanted to quit acting. The only thing that pretty much pulled me out of that was God, my belief, my faith and my family - and an email from BAFTA saying that they want me to be part of the Breakthrough Brits and I was like 'let me try again.'"

Wright is set to star in the film "Death On The Nile" which will be released next year.

For a monthly gift of £8 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
