The rise and fall of Tammy Faye Bakker, the 1970’s star of a global religious satellite network who created a televangelist empire, is passionately revived by Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield.
To transform into the fallen televangelist for The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Jessica Chastain did almost 10 years of research including reading up about and watching interviews of Tammy, who died at age 65 in 2007 after colon cancer spread to her lungs. “I just was so blown away by her and her story. The thing I loved the most about Tammy is her capacity to love. She knew what it felt like to not feel important, and she didn’t want anyone to experience that.”
