The soul of Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, best known for the part of evil sorcerer Shang Tsung in the Mortal Kombat movies, has been captured by Russia – he has apparently decided to be baptized into the Orthodox Church.
Tagawa, an American actor of Japanese descent, who took part in a new Russian film called The Priest-San, decided to abandon his faith and become a true follower of Jesus Christ’s orthodox teachings, Interfax reports.
220307.pThe news was spread via Facebook by one of his colleagues, Ivan Okhlobystin, an actor and prominent Russian religious figure. He shared a photo of Tagawa taken with a giant cross, probably snapped during filming not far from Moscow.
“I’m happy to say that… after deep and thorough consideration Cary Tagawa, who played the part of the Japanese orthodox priest in our new film The Priest-san, will take the Sacrament of Holy Baptism,” his post goes.
“You cannot just grasp the essence of the Russian Orthodox… When I first came to Russia I had very little time to get into the character. So I visited a number of Russian cathedrals in Yaroslavl and Rostov. Simply being inside had a very powerful effect on me,” Tagawa said in an interview to Kinopoisk.ru in 2013 when the shooting in Russia was done.
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa received a baptismal name of Panteleymon, Okhlobystin wrote on his Facebook page.
Tagawa also expressed his intention to become a Russian citizen at a press conference, according to Orthodox news website pravmir.ru.
“I’m not following the new trend,” he said, most likely alluding to American boxer Roy Jones Jr and French actor Gerard Depardieu. “I follow my heart. There are no easy decisions either in America, or anywhere else in the world. This will be a new challenge for me.”
The film, soon to hit screens in Russia, tells the story of a Japanese priest, who leaves Japan due to Yakuza wars and heads for a small Russian town to help its locals fight rampant corruption. The movie is the latest project from the “Orthodox” producing studio.

Ο Shang Tsung του Mortal Kombat έγινε Ορθόδοξος

Ορθόδοξος Χριστιανός βαπτίστηκε ο ηθοποιός του Hollywood, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, στον Ιερό Ναό της Παναγίας Πάντων των Θλιβομένων η χαρά.
Το μυστήριο του βαπτίσματος τέλεσε στα αγγλικά ο Πρόεδρος του Τμήματος των Εξωτερικών Σχέσεων του Πατριαρχείου Μόσχας, Σεβ. Μητροπολίτης Βολοκολάμσκ κ. Ιλαρίωνας.
Να αναφερθεί ότι το όνομα που έλαβε ο ηθοποιός Tagawa είναι Παντελεήμων.
Σύμφωνα με πληροφορίες ο Tagawa έπαιξε στην ρώσικη ταινία “ιερέας” και μετά από βαθιά αναζήτηση και σκέψη, αποφάσισε να λάβει το βάπτισμα και να ασπαστεί την Ορθοδοξία.
