Actor Zachary Levi Keeps Eternal Perspective After Father’s Death

By Movieguide® Contributor

While AMERICAN UNDERDOG actor Zachary Levi mourns his father’s death, he has found comfort in his eternal perspective.

“Death does not sadden or frighten me,” the Movieguide® Award-nominated actor told a fan. “It’s actually an incredibly powerful part of life. One that we’ll all reach one day. Where we get to go back to God, the source, and be surrounded by the highest vibration of energy, love.”

 Levi’s father, who he called “Papa D,” passed away in January after a long battle with thyroid cancer.

The actor shared a similar sentiment when he announced his father’s death in January, saying he was thankful that his father was free of his “decaying body” and now “singing karaoke in heaven.”

“He was just a shell of a person of a person at the end, so lots of tears about that, but I’m grateful I’m able to tap into the love,” the TANGLED actor said.

“Watching anyone slowly die of cancer is one of the worst experiences I can attest to,” Levi said at the time. “But knowing that he’s no longer trapped in his decaying body, and now singing karaoke in heaven gives me so much peace and joy.”

After the update that “Papa D” had passed away, fans flooded Levi with countless thoughts and prayers.
