About Today’s Episode:
Sonya Balmores Chung lights up the silver screen for the first time in “Soul Surfer” opposite Academy Award winner Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid and AnnaSophia Robb. “Soul Surfer” is the true story about thirteen year old Bethany Hamilton, who is attacked by a tiger shark and must find courage to get back on the surfboard. She plays the role of Malina Burch, the antagonist in the movie, but, as you will soon find, the character is far from the real person. Today, we have the privilege of hearing the woman behind the character.
