BackstageOL’s Dave Morales sat down with actress Radha Mitchell in this backstage interview to talk about her role in The Shack, a Christian-based film based on Paul Young’s 2007 novel of the same name.
In the interview, the actress illustrated what drew her to the film, what it was like to play the role of Nan Phillips and working with Sam Worthington.
“I think it’s a bold movie. Obviously, the book has a huge following and there’s a lot of success there,” said Mitchell. “I like the fact that this is a movie about God.”
The Shack takes us on a father’s uplifting spiritual journey. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.
The Shack hits theaters this Friday, March 3rd. Check out the full interview with Mitchell below:
