We already know she can sing — heck, she’s won five Grammys on the strength of her pipes! — but can Carrie Underwood act as well? We’ll find out soon, it seems!
The country singing sensation has landed her first movie role, a supporting part in upcoming film Soul Surfer.
The movie centers around the life of Bethany Hamilton, 19, champion surfer who has been competing for six years after losing her arm in a shark attack at 13.
Carrie will take on the role of Sarah Hill, a church youth leader, with filming set to start in February.
AnnaSophia Robb will star as Bethany, and Academy Award winner Helen Hunt will play her mother, Cheri, with Dennis Quaid starring as Bethany’s dad, Tom.
