Hollywood Actress Leaves ‘Black Lightning’ TV Series To Do ‘God’s Work’

Hollywood actress China Anne McClain is making an exit from her show “Black Lightning,” to do God’s work because nothing else satisfies her.


She shared on Instagram that season four of the superhero series would be her last season and confirmed rumors that the show was headed for cancellation.

“All this is an illusion. It’s an illusion. This industry for what it is and everything people look to and praise, it’s not important,” she said.

“God is moving me in more than one way than just this show. It’s bigger than just this show. I’m doing God’s work now and I’m not doing anything else. I’m just gon’ put it plainly.”

The Georgia beauty said the coronavirus pandemic had made her think about her life and revealed that she was planning to leave the show and do only God’s work from now on.


“I’m not leaving because I had a terrible time working at the CW,” McClain clarified, and said she admires showrunner Salim Akil. “People that know me, they know why I make the decisions I make. They also know I never make a single one of them to hurt anyone or to affect anyone negatively. But I am doing God’s work now and that is all I’m doing. I don’t know why I was wasting time before.”

“When He calls I’m going to follow. I don’t care where He leads me, I don’t care if it’s in the middle of Timbuktu somewhere living off of a couple of pennies and a dime for the rest of my life with my family doing missionary work … I would leave all of this behind,” she declared while in tears. “I just made it to this point of my life now, during this quarantine.”

The ‘Black Lightning’ actress said she’d rather “live her life awake” and dedicate her life to God’s work because nothing else satisfies her. She also said that entertainment today was missing the “spirit,” and that from now on she would be producing films with a message.

I don’t believe any of them.

Verse of the Day

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:6-8 (NIV)
