Will He Convert You or Con You? John Ortiz and Stefania LaVie Owen on Netflix Messiah Series

Father-daughter relationships may not be shown quite as much on-screen as say father-son or mother-daughter but with the specific duo played by John Ortiz and Stefania LaVie Owen, we get to see the complexity through the teen years as well as the deep love.

John Ortiz and Stefania LaVie Owen in Messiah.

Ortiz plays a pastor in Netflix’s Messiah and he’s an integral role in the series. As the show unfolds we learn more and more about his daughter, LaVie Owen, and her part in this thriller.

We sat down with them to talk about their relationship on-screen.

Messiah streams on Netflix January 1.
