Stunning and in demand actor Emmanuelle Vaugier has booked the coveted leading role as Mary Magdalene in the feature film ‘Saul’ now filming in Malta until mid December. ‘Saul’ is based on the Acts of the Apostles. Emmanuelle is starring along side John Rhys Davis (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Lord of the Rings), Kyle Schmidt (Being Human, Copper) Callum Blue (The Tudors), and Kris Holden Reid (The Tudors, Lost Girl).

As Saul the Butcher, the stoning of Stephen shattered Saul’s faith in the Temple and its denial of Christ as the Messiah. His conversion to Christianity and baptism as Paul changed the history of the world. The script and direction is in the hands of Maltese writer/director Mario Philip Azzopardi, “Saul” is an official Malta-Canada co-production produced by Cittadella Films with Canadian film-maker Ken Gord and eONE acting as worldwide distributors.
