AnnaSophia Robb SOUL SURFER Movie


Anna Sophia Robb will portray one-armed surfer Bethany Hamilton in an upcoming film called Soul Surfer. Bethany, now 19, had her left arm ripped off by a 5 meter long tiger shark at age 13. She told Herald Sun that the film traces the horrific attack and her brave journey back to the beach.

Bethany, who is a front-running contender at the Billabong world junior surfing championships, said the film would begin production towards the end of the month and she would be doing most of the surfing and other stunts in place of AnnaSophia. Bethany is excited to work with Anna: ‘She’s super cool.

A great girl. We’ve met in Hawaii and hung out.‘ For post-attack scenes in which a one-armed stunt woman was needed, Bethany stepped up: ‘They wanted a one-armed person doing it and that’s not easy to find.’

    This is old news. Does AnnaSophia Robb have so little going on that they have to keep putting out the same story?

    Wow, that’s horrible! That she had her arm ripped out by a shark, not the story. the story is fascinating, and I’m really looking forward to the movie! But how are they gonna do the scenes of AFTER the shark attack? Like, how will AnnaSophia portray her after the shark attack… like, in the hospital?

    I read this book in the sixth grade! I’m in 12th now btw. I remember this story (:

  • Vallygirl

    I live in Hawaii, and she came to my store. she was with some guy and another girl (I did not recognize them) but she bought about $300 worth of food. and even signed up for a rewards card for our store :P I got the feeling that she was staying in Hawaii for awhile because she was talking to her friends about when her mom got there and how her mom would be doing the shopping from now on. she opened a coconut water as she left. she was nice but I did not really ask her questions.

    This story is so inspirational. I cannot understand what she has gone through, and god bless her. She must have such a distorted life now, wow. I am so sorry for her.
    But congrats to Miss Robb :D It sounds like a great part, something that really requires depth and soul and more importantly, real emotions. I think she can do it :P
