Rachel Hendrix interview: ‘The Perfect Wave’ ‘October Baby’ ’77 Chances’ and ‘Coffee Shop’

The new Christian film The Perfect Wave brings the life, tragic accident and incredible testimony of Ian McCormack to life on the big screen. October Baby star Rachel Hendrix co-stars with Scott Eastwood and Cheryl Ladd in the film and spoke with Dispatch Radio in an exclusive interview.

Rachel Haddix portraitHendrix discussed the production, filming on location around the world, working with Eastwood and meeting McCormack herself. She is hopeful the powerful story Ian experienced will effect audiences.

McCormack traveled the world surfing the greatest waves, but has a tragic accident where he is stung by box jellyfish and dies. Ian’s experience, the voice he heard and the prayers of his Christian mother are key to a life-changing event.

Rachel reflects on October Baby, the reaction from fans and those who still share their testimony similar to the story of the film. We openly talk about the challenge the film presents on abortion, pro-life vs pro-choice decisions and how the film pushes the audience into a different look at a topic which is usually so polarizing.

Hendrix previews her two next films 77 Chances and Coffee Shop.

Coffee Shop is set for November and reunites the actress with Jon Erwin, director of October Baby, who write the film. She praises director Dave Alan Johnson and explains what fans can expect in the film.

77 Chances, directed by Tracy Trost, centers on Andrew Cheney’s Jason who is enduring a Groundhog Day experience, trying to make a change for all of the wrong reasons, says Hendrix, in an effort to avoid a tragedy.
