Danny shattering suppression: “In Scientology, there’s no belief system or anyone who’s worshipped or whatnot; it’s all sort of like college of the mind.”

Danny Masterson grew up the child of Scientologists, who put him out for auditions for television commercials starting at a very young age. His run on That ’70s Show made him a familiar face, but since he became the subject of a Los Angeles Police Department rape investigation, his acting career has been put on hold.

Danny’s actor brothers Chris and Jordan and sister Alanna are all Scientologists. “The entire family is so tight, and they aren’t going anywhere. They’re among the tightest young people who are still in — and the church rides herd on them constantly,” says our Celebrity Centre source.
