Eddie Deezen, Scientology celebrity

Current lifetime: Born March 6, 1957 in Cumberland, Maryland
Most famous for: Playing the quintessential nerd in Grease, Wargames, and other movies
Joined Scientology: After meeting John Travolta while filming Grease.
Fun Scientology completion: OT Preps, 2015

Eddie shattering suppression: “It works for some people. It helped me a lot. It just gave me some tools to make my life better. Humankind is in a terrible state.”

Says our Celebrity Centre source: “Used to see him around Celebrity Centre a lot. He would show up in Celebrity magazine’s ‘live wire’ section when he did a new movie or TV show. He seemed very humble and not cliquish like a lot of the other celebs are. In a 2012 interview in Vice, Eddie seemed to be off the Bridge. But in 2015 he was doing his set ups for the OT levels. So he’s back in unless I missed something. His career morphed into voice acting similar to Nancy Cartwright. So he most likely is financially able to continue his Scientology progress. No doubt he has been treated well by CC staff and enjoys his bubble existence. He has spoken positively in interviews about the church.”
