    Carrie Underwood: Acting is very challenging

    Carrie Underwood: Acting is very challenging

    Cover Media – Sat, Mar 26, 2011 11:00 AM SGT

    Carrie Underwood admits acting is “way out of her element”.

    The Grammy winning country singer rose to fame after winning the fourth season of talent show, American Idol in 2005. The 28-year-old has since gone on to forge a successful music career, releasing three studio albums.

    Carrie has also ventured into acting, with a small role last year on US sitcom, How I Met Your Mother. She will now appear in her first feature film titled, Soul Surfer, where she stars in the true story of a youth councillor who befriends a surfer following a shark attack.

    Carrie admits she was apprehensive about going into acting as she’s no longer in her comfort zone.

    Acting is hard because you have to memorize you lines but hopefully Carrie's first feature films does well

    Yeah I'd say memorizing lines is the least challenging part in acting. I'd say the "acting" bit of acting is the most difficult

    I'm sure she did amazing! After all, she made me cry when I was watching the trailer. And don't even get me started on the TH video!

    Marlon Brando almost never knew his lines.Many times he worked from cue cards held by staff off camera.

    Exactly, remembering lines isn't any different than remembering lyrics.

    It's expressing those lines that is the hardest thing to do.

    I could never be an actor if the mwemorization of lines was important. Thanks Marlon.

    True. Carrie is a pro at memorizing and delivering song lyrics on stage and in her videos. She is also very spiritual. I think her role in Soul Sufer is a "natural" role for her and should not be much of a stretch for her, other than it's a totally new experience. I'm sure she does a great job as she pulls all her strengths together and delivers a great performance on the big screen.

    I am looking forward to seeing Soul Surfer!

    Carrie can do and sing anything!! From what I have seen in her videos and the trailers for the movie, She is a 'natural' actor!! I think you'd almost have to be to be able to act to perform in front of thousands of people all the time as she does! Love her, Can't wait for the movie!!

    Ah! She's just so a natural actor! I love her! I know what she feels, acting really is hard. But she'll get used to it, the same way she learned to overcome her shyness to face people and now, she's our entertainer! I'm dying to see Soul Surfer! Wham!
