BTSCelebs: The movie revolves around surfing, are you athletic in real life?
Rachel Hendrix: Yes, I was actually so stoked to get a chance to surf in South Africa. Our bodies are incredible powerhouses, and I think it’s so important to take care of them. I’d never surfed before. So, they hired an instructor and I caught on quickly. Surfing is another world of athletics and I fell in love with it. I’m definitely into sports and fitness and pushing my body to the limits, physically and emotionally, so I have major respect for athletes.
Did you ever desire to start your acting career in mainstream Hollywood rather than inspirational?
I am excited to take any opportunities that come my way in this industry, mainstream, faith-based, family-friendly, indie, you name it. My hope is always to tell powerful and important stories to whichever audience wants to engage.
You’re a married lady. Tell us how you and your Swiss hubby Gabriel Trüb met? How did he propose?
Yes, being married to Gabriel has changed my whole world. He’s wonderful, and we support each other fully. He asked me to marry him in a song by a waterfall dear to my heart in Alabama.
Will you and your musician hubby collaborate on a movie together in the near future?
I think you’d have to ask him that. I wouldn’t put the idea past us, but right now we’re just focusing on the present craziness. I would eventually love to collaborate with him.
