Actress Chrissy Metz Says ‘Breakthrough’ Film Inspires Her Faith

Actress Chrissy Metz has inspired many, both through her role on the popular TV show ‘This Is Us and with her own real-life overcomer story. And now, playing a lead role in the faith-based film ‘Breakthrough,’ has brought attention to Chrissy Metz’s faith, something for which she refuses to apologize!

Chrissy Metz may be living the good life now. But that wasn’t always the case.

Before becoming the star she is today, Chrissy faced plenty of adversity, both personally and professionally. In fact, she was completely broke and ready to give up when her big breakthrough on ‘This Is Us’ hit.

The best way to handle hard times is to surrender to God’s will. But Chrissy Metz’s faith hasn’t been public knowledge until a real-life story of faith prompted her to speak out.


The movie ‘Breakthrough’ tells a true story of unwavering faith. Mother Joyce Smith fully surrenders to God when her adopted son, John, falls through an icy lake. John spent more than 15 minutes in the freezing water and his lifeless body gave doctors no hope. But John’s mom, Joyce, refused to give up and continued to pray over her son’s body. And just as doctors prepared to declare John dead, God sent a miracle (read the real news story HERE)!

Chrissy Metz plays Joyce Smith in the film ‘Breakthrough,’ which releases in April 2019. And the incredible, true story hit her hard.

“There’s no question that something miraculous happened, nobody can explain how our why,” Chrissy Metz explained.

And that notion of never giving up truly resonated with Chrissy after the hardships she’s endured in her own life.

“Joyce’s [faith] never faltered and she continues to believe, just as people believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself,” Chrissy Metz explained. “You have to have somebody to believe in something, somebody to hold on to that. And I think it’s so inspiring in the way that just when you think you can’t, and everybody else’s against you – that God is for you and that’s all that you need.”

n fact, Chrissy says the foundation of her faith in Jesus is what carried her through the dark times in her life.

“There are times where you really feel like, it’s never going to get better, you’re down and out and we get in our heads and we build this fear around something that the only person, or the only thing that can subside that, is our faith in God. I know that from a personal plight of my life,” Chrissy said.
