Amanda told Elle Canada about sailing, ”I don’t know where I got the idea that sailing would be easy. I imagined myself sitting around in a bikini and slipping champagne on deck, but that wasn’t it at all.”
‘We used a real-deal (racing sailboat) during filming and there was an eight-man crew trying to navigate it. They’re professionals, and they were struggling and sweating — eight massive guys who have been doing this their whole lives.”
Fair enough. So sailing is NOT easy. What was it like to work with Zac Efron?
“Zac doesn’t carry that (heartthrob, celebrity arrogance) around with him at all. He’s so humble and such a hard working. This film will show him in a different light, and he deserves that,” Amanda said.
