The Thorn Birds Miniseries Cast

Series Description

The Thorn Birds miniseries won 3 Emmys and 4 Golden Globe Awards! The Thorn Birds was watched by more viewers than any other miniseries except Roots. A Catholic priest, played by Richard Chamberlain, agonizes over his two great desires in life. His drive to advance his career in the church is overwhelming but so is his love for a beautiful woman he meets in Austailia! Will his guilt over this passionate affair be enough to end it? Will the Vatican learn of the affair and deflock him, especially as he rises in rank and is much more visible?

The Thorn Birds explores the age old question; "Can a person truly love two people at once?". Can he love both God and this woman at the same time?
