If not, be sure to catch it out on Blu-ray and DVD!
AnnaSophia, 17, told JJJ she was very invested playing Bethany in the movie.
“The character is all about surfing and just wanting to get back on the board, and the perseverance, and I really did want to get back on the board,” she said, “It was nice to be able to bring a legitimate surf culture into the movie.”
The actress also did a bit of research for her role before shooting.
AnnaSophia said, “Before I went and met Bethany, I had read the book and I had annotations all over. I mean, it probably tripled in size because there were so many sticky notes inside. I remember, I went to Kauai before we started shooting. I sat down next to Bethany and she picked up my book and just started laughing at me.”
Eventually, AnnaSophia had the actual Bethany to turn to when she had questions. “We just became really good friends,” she said. “It was so nice because anything I ever wanted to ask her, she had no reservations.”
Soul Surfer is out on blu-ray Sunday (August 2).
