"Soul Surfer" Cast Interviews


"Soul Surfer" tells the true story of professional surfer Bethany Hamilton who lost most of one arm in a shark attack at the age of thirteen but was back on her board less than one month later. She's since won surfing competitions and worked with faith-based charities doing relief work in Thaliand and elsewhere. Watch my interviews with Bethany, Anna Sophia Robb (who plays her in the movie) and Dennis Quaid HERE.
