So, before I went to my parents today for Easter dinner, I happened to be watching a little bit of Jesus of Nazareth on History Channel. This was a miniseries from 1977. When Balthazar was speaking, I recognized the voice as James Earl Jones. I double checked online and indeed it was him. I then was looking up more info on the woman who played Mary, mother of Jesus. Her name is Olivia Hussey. Amongst her credits are voice work on a couple of Star Wars video games. She did a couple of voices on Force Commander, and was the voice of Kasan Moor in Rogue Squadron. So, two people with a Star Wars connection appeared in this show which originally aired shortly before the original Star Wars movie was released.
