Lorraine Nicholson

Lorraine Nicholson is to play the best-friend of Bethany Hamilton in the new surfer flick, Soul Surfers. This will be Nicholson’s first major role, having previously had short appearances in ‘Click’, ‘Princess Diaries 2′, and ‘Something’s Gotta Give’.

Critics are quick to jump on her saying she wouldn’t get anywhere if it wasn’t for her connections in the industry (aka: daddy dearest Jack Nicholson). Isn’t that how just about everyone navigates Hollywood??


Sean Brosnan

Reported to be taking on the role of Bethany Hamilton’s brother in Soul Surfer, Sean Brosnan (Pierce’s son) will also be making his big screen debut with this film. Despite his talented father, the younger Brosnan hasn’t seemed to be too keen on taking on the same industry that made his father a star.

That may be changing though as he is also scheduled to play the role in another movie currently in production, ‘Sweet Baby Jesus’. Hopefully the pedigree of the Brosnan family includes on screen talent.


AnnaSophia Robb

AnnaSophia Robb’s, starring as Bethany Hamilton in Soul Surfer, two big-screen appearances in 2005 were both adaptations of popular children’s books. She starred as Opal in Because of Winn-Dixie and as the competitive and rude gum-chewer Violet Beauregarde in Tim Burton’s remake of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The latter was a major box office success worldwide, and helped escalate Robb’s popularity among pre-teen audiences.

Robb played Leslie Burke in Bridge to Terabithia, in which she recorded a song for the soundtrack titled, “Keep Your Mind Wide Open”. The song appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 at #90 one week, giving Robb her first charting single. A fan of the book before being cast in the role, she said that it, “touched me in a way I hadn’t been touched by a book before.”

We think we may be writing full profiles on each of these new stars very soon looking at how well they are already doing in Hollywood!
