Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Alfonso Herrera says his loved ones were initially worried and over-protective when he told them he would be playing a Catholic priest on Fox's demon drama, "The Exorcist."
"I come from a very Catholic background. I'm Mexican. All of my family, they are all Catholics. I'm a Catholic, but I don't practice it. So, I remember my family, they were very concerned about me," the 34-year-old actor recently laughed, while talking to reporters about the horror series at New York Comic Con. "I remember I told my mom, 'Hey, Mom, I'm going to do this show.' And, literally, she sent me 100 rosaries. 100! Just in case. Just in case."
