Eliza Dushku
"I kind of fell out of Mormonism at a young age. My brothers and I were not completely rebellious, but I remember driving to church in the minivan on Sunday--church is three hours long if you're Mormon-- we would stop at a red light, throw open the slider [door] and run for the hills. My mother would be screaming!"

Eliza was raised with a strict Mormon parents she is not active at this time

In 2014 at Comic Con in Salt Lake she said She’s been inspired by her own mother’s courage and grace, she said. And she’ll always be grateful that she was raised in the LDS Church, she said, although she has chosen a different path.

"There will always be that part of me that’s Mormon," she said, adding she has a Mormon tattoo on her hip, declining to show it off. "That’s a different show," she said.  Deseret News

Aaron Edward Eckhart

While at Brigham Young University, Aaron Eckhart performed in the Mormon-themed film, Godly Sorrow. He served a Mormon mission in the Geneva Switzerland Mission.  Aaron is not a practicing Mormon at this time

Talking to Entertainment Weekly about his Mormon faith, Aaron revealed: "I'm sure people think I'm a Mormon, but I don't know that I'm a Mormon anymore, you know? To be honest, to be perfectly clear, I'd be a hypocrite if I did say that I was, just because I haven't lived that lifestyle for so many years."


Byron Foulger
He began performing with stock and repertory companies after graduating from the University of Utah.  A man of meek, edgy countenance, his short stature and squinty stare could be used for playing both humble and shady fellows.  Although predominantly employed as an owlish storekeeper, mortician, professor, or bank teller, his better parts had darker intentions - exceptional as weasly, mealy-mouthed, whining henchmen who would inevitably show their yellow streak by the film's end.  He moved on into TV in the 50s and 60s, displaying a comedy side in many folksy, rural sitcoms.  He died of heart problems in 1970. (1899-1970)
