The focus of the interview was on his experience during the filming of the dramatic thriller, Woman Thou Art Loosed: On The 7th Day. Underwood explained to me that “New Orleans is one of my favorite cities in the world. New Orleans, especially the French Quarter, is like a country unto itself. We shot the film in July of 2011. At this stage of my career, it is important that I do what I enjoy doing. Co-starring with a phenomenal actress, such as Sharon Lela, was also a joy. I had an incredible time.”
Underwood proclaimed “My wife and I will be celebrating our 18th year anniversary. We often say to our kids, stop and breathe – take a slow deep breath. What happens is your whole body calms down and you can think more clearly about what your doing. The bigger issue is to go to your faith. What works for me, is to know that all of this is preordained. Our job is to learn the lesson. I am a Christian, I believe God has a plan. I believe he is not going to leave us hanging. If I did not have faith as a tool, as a man, in our society… I don’t have all the answers.
