Her silver screen debut
In 2011, Carrie debuted in a silver-screen capacity in Soul Surfer, a biopic about surfer Bethany Hamilton and her career as a surfer after losing an arm due to a traumatic shark attack. Tiffany, a minor character in the larger narrative, was played by Carrie. The picture was well-received but poorly at the box office, grossing over $10 million.
In 2011, she decided to enter the film business and made her debut in acting in a movie. Although Soul Surfer’s chilly reviews didn’t focus on her acting, Carrie was determined to establish herself as an actress. She was confident that she could do better after being disappointed with her initial acting experience.
